Passengers should reach airport 2 hrs early with protective gear post Lockdown, proposes CISF

New Delhi: Airport Security The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has drawn up a new plan necessary for the air passenger blockade imposed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

In the new plan presented to the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA), CISF said that when the flight operation resumes, “passengers arrive at the airport time two hours before flight time with the appropriate protective equipment, for example, mask, gloves and disinfectants. ”

CISF also urged the civil aviation ministry to also place bottles of disinfectant at all airport entry and exit gates for passengers and employees.

Flying with a vacant seat between every two people could be the “new norm” for air passengers when scheduled commercial flights resume, CISF said in the new plan.

According to officials, the plan is under consideration and the idea behind it is to look for amazing flights to avoid crowding at airports at any time.

“We have proposed a new plan that incorporates the necessary precaution in view of the change in circumstances due to COVID-19. This has been sent to the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) for its consideration”, GA Ganapathy, Special Director (Airport) of CISF , he told ANI.

In addition, CISF informed all airlines that airlines make it clear to passengers to whom, whenever they book tickets, they must give details of their self-guarantee / home history.

If any passenger flies after the quarantine history, CISF will examine them at an isolation checkpoint where CISF officers are covered in a full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suit. The airline crew will offer disinfectants to each passenger on board, according to the plan.

Passenger flight operations in India have been suspended since March 25 due to coronaviruses.

As of now, there is no clarity from the government to resume flight operations. Civil Aviation Minister (MoCA) Hardeep Puri tweeted: “The current blockade on domestic and international passenger flights is until April 15. There is still a decision to restart flights after this period. If necessary, we will have to assess the situation on a case-by-case basis. ”

The Ministry of Civil Aviation, the Indian Airport Authority (AAI), the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and other stakeholders are working together on how to resume operation after the closure.
