In a move to make air travel hassle-free, the CISF has announced that passengers at six major airports in the country will not be required to get the security stamp on the tags on their hand baggages.

The security stamp ensures that the baggage has been thoroughly checked and is safe to be carried in the plane.

“Starting December 15, we are beginning a pilot project at six major airports where passengers will not be required to get the security stamp on the tags on their hand baggages,” CISF Director General O P Singh said.

“They can get their other security checks done and board their flights. This is a passenger friendly measure that we have initiated,” he added.

According to the reports, CISF’s this pilot project will be started at airports in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

The CISF DG added that the initiative will be extended to other airports too, based on the feedback received.

 

The decision in this regard was on Thursday firmed up during a high-level meeting between the airport security brass of the security force and top executives of over a dozen major airlines operating in the country, an Indian Express report said.

The airlines which participated in the meeting included Air Asia, Go Air, Jet Airways, Spice Jet, Vistara, Air Arabia and Gulf Air among others.
