Srinagar airport to spruce up amenities to handle increased footfall


Setting up more baggage checking machines and introducing electric vehicles to ferry passengers are among the key measures to be undertaken to handle increased footfall at the international airport here ahead of G20 events and the tourist season, officials said on Friday.

Besides these, a police unit to cater to complaints and grievances of tourists and a police facilitation counter would also be setup, they said.

The measures were announced on Thursday at a meeting to review the security aspects and functioning of the Srinagar international airport, the officials said.
