With more than one lakh daily passengers, Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru has returned to its pre-pandemic level.
Story so far: Over one lakh people use the airport every day on average. According to Bengaluru International Airport (BIAL) officials, this figure is significantly higher than the volume of passengers during the most recent holiday season, Deepawali. 94,330 people used the airport throughout the Deepawali weekend.
- These days, there are often long lines at the airport.
- For a smooth boarding process, the BIAL officials have deployed more staff and security officers.
Automated tray retrieval system: During peak hours, officials have transformed two international automated tray retrieval system lanes into swing lanes to accommodate both domestic and foreign traffic. A qualified staff member is on duty at every checkpoint to ensure crowd rerouting and even distribution between zones.
