Lucknow, May 16: Many Air India special flights will take off from abroad from May 21 under ‘Vande Bharat Mission’ to land at Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport in capital city Lucknow.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is finalizing the new guidelines for the safe travel of passengers.

A number of flights with stranded Indians on-board under ‘Vande Bharat Mission’ will be landing at Chauhary Charan Singh International Airport from May 21 onwards in Lucknow. Therefore, preparations for safe travel of passengers and prevention from coronavirus infection at Lucknow airport are being carried out in the last phase.

However, the third phase of the nationwide lockdown ends on May 17. Therefore, the Directorate General of Municipal Aviation has prepared a framework for the operation of domestic airlines.

Lucknow airport administration has finished all preparations to operate domestic airlines anytime after the airport authority gives its signals. Aviation Security Group (ASG) will stamp on boarding passes of passengers, instead Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), before security check at the airport. Boarding passes of passengers and their identity cards will be digitally recorded with high-capacity CCTV. The recording of CCTV will be preserved for 30 days. Aviation companies will soon make monitoring systems for this.

At the same time, people coming from the airport leaving cars will not be allowed to enter the terminal. At one time only the designated passengers will enter the airport. The idea is to implement a token system for this. In order to prevent the spread of corona, no passenger should touch anyone, for this, preparations are being made to use the automatic luggage system and e-boarding pass.

Apart from this, the Aviation Authority has given permission to travel with 350 ml sanitizer to rescue passengers from Corona.

However, the passenger will have to give written information at the airport. In fact, after the start of special train services to bring and take passengers in the country in the third phase of lockdown, now the expectations of flying in a limited number of aircraft have also increased.

Director of Lucknow Airport A.K. Sharma said on Saturday that no instructions have been received from the headquarters regarding the normal operation of the flights at the end of the third phase of the lockdown. Many flights under the ‘Vande Bharat Mission’ are to arrive at Lucknow Airport soon. So preparations are going on in the last phase.

He told that after the third phase of the lockdown is over, if the instructions for operating the aircraft are received from the headquarters, then the Lucknow airport is fully ready.
