Hyderabad airport to have contactless terminal entry for passengers

Travelling across the world is evolving in the times of the pandemic Coronavirus. The world is embracing measures to observe social distancing rules even after air travel restarts in the coming days. One such place in India that has invented a novel system to maintain social distance between passengers and the airport staff is Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Hyderabad.

For the first time in the history of air travel in India, the RGIA airport will implement contactless terminal entry for air travellers. As the name suggests, contactless entry of passengers will limit contact between the airport staff and the passengers.

At the airport entry gate, passengers shall no longer be asked to show their flight ticket and photo ID to a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) staff for verification. Instead, passengers will be asked to show their identity proof and ticket onto a HD camera that will be installed at every departure gate of the airport.

As part of the safety measures, the airport has installed thermal cameras at every departure gate to screen the temperature of the passengers in a subtle way. Any passenger identified to have high body temperature will be barred from entering airport premises by the concerned airport authorities.

News also has it that the check-in counters will be equipped with acrylic shields, and will be placed in a manner that passengers will have to get their boarding cards and baggage tags on their own.
