Adani group-owned Mumbai International Airport on Monday said it has introduced a common security checkpoint for domestic and international passengers. Besides, the private airport operator has installed 13 roller and sensor-based Automatic Tray Retrieval System (ATRS) at the new integrated security checkpoint, which will enhance passenger processing time further.
In a statement, the airport operator said it plans to install an ATRS at Terminal 1 for the convenience of passengers departing from the terminal.
Mumbai Airport has two terminals — T1 and T2.
T1 caters to domestic passengers while T2 is for domestic as well as international passengers.
For the first time at an Indian airport, the unique integrated security checkpoint would witness all international and domestic passengers departing through T2 of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) here and undergo common security clearance at Level 4 and move towards the designated e-gates, the statement said.
Subsequently, all the departing passengers then proceed to their respective ‘Security Holding Area’ (SHA).
Earlier, security checks for both domestic and international passengers were carried out at Level 3 and 4 of T2, respectively, the statement said.
The private airport operator said it has been consistently working towards the adoption of solution-driven processes across the various operations throughout the airport to bring in ease of travel.
The retrieval system can circulate an average of 350 sanitised trays per hour, which will not only boost the processing time of passenger luggage check but also eliminate any manual intervention of the passenger or the staff, it added.
