No hand baggage tags at four more airports

Monday, September 11, 2017

New Delhi: Domestic passengers flying from Coimbatore, Calcutta, Indore and Vadodara will not be required to tag their hand baggage anymore.

The country's top aviation security body allowed the airports in these cities also to discontinue the outdated security procedure which has already been scrapped in 13 other airports.

The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) plans to scrap the practice across airports in a phased manner. All 59 airports where CISF is in-charge of security are likely to be covered by the end of the year. In two separate rounds in April and June, the security agencies had discontinued this procedure in 13 airports.

"After successful trial run and positive feedback received from the concerned quarters, it has been decided to dispense with the present system of stamping of hand baggage tags at pre-embarkation security check (PESC) points at four additional airports namely Coimbatore, Calcutta, Indore and Vadodara with immediate effect," Kumar Rajesh Chandra, DG BCAS said in an order issued on September 8.
