The Director General of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) OP Singh, on Friday, launched country’s first “Express Check In facility for domestic passengers” at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad.
This will serve as ‘Express Security Check’ facility for domestic passengers travelling without any check-in baggage.
OP Singh, DG, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) inaugurated this facility on Friday.
The domestic passengers, after printing their boarding pass from the newly installed ‘self-service kiosks’ located conveniently at the departures outside the terminal building, can now enter the Express Security Check lane without getting into the check-in area and head straight towards the boarding area, it said.
The facility gives a frequent flyer, carrying only hand baggage, a direct excess to security check without going to usual boarding counter
Currently, Hyderabad Airport handles more than 18,000 domestic departure passengers on daily basis, of which close to 40 per cent travel without any checked-in baggage, and carry at most only hand baggage, as per the release.
The new process will also benefit the airlines by reducing the queues at the check-in counters and improving their on-time performance
Further, the facility will also help in reducing the anxiety levels of passengers travelling through a busy airport.
“This new feature is in sync with this commitment and we hope that every passenger flies happy, flies safe,” Singh said.
