BCAS conducts aviation security awareness prog

Patna: The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has been conducting aviation security awareness programme for general staff with no security background. Experts from outside state will impart training to more than 2100 personnel working at Patna, Darbhanga and Gaya airports in the next one week to become eyes and ears of security personnel, BCAS regional director (Patna) Abhimanyu Singh said on the occasion of International Civil Aviation Day on Tuesday.

He said the BCAS is working to address the congestion-related security issues at Patna and Darbhanga airports in order to strengthen their aviation security in the long run. Singh said a security survey has already been conducted for Darbhanga airport and necessary suggestions, including expanding the terminal capacity, have been sent to the authorities concerned.

He said the training capsule aims at sensitizing non-security staff working at the airports. “They are being made aware about threats, anomaly and suspicious things to remain alert while performing regular duty in order to alert airport security guards (ASG) or CISF personnel,” he said. Singh said the one-day training course is a must for non-security staff to get an airport entry pass.
