Hyderabad: The newly-built Interim International Departures Terminal at RGIA Hyderabad is all set to commence operations from October 23. GMR-led Hyderabad International airport launched the Interim International Departures Terminal on Wednesday. Mr Rajiv Nayan Choubey, IAS, Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation, inaugurated it.
The terminal is equipped with new technologies, including India’s first ever remote hand baggage screening facility, which when coupled with the new Automatic Tray Retrieval System hand baggage screening, can offer up to double the passenger throughput at security checkpoints, cutting down wait times and enhancing passenger experience.
Mr SGK Kishore, CEO, GHIAL, said, “Our city is witnessing a boom in air travel and with its strategic locational advantage, the passenger traffic through Hyderabad Airport is growing at a rate of about 24 per cent YoY(year on year). We have developed the Interim International Departures Terminal as an extension of the existing airport with the objective of offering additional interim capacity, without compromising on passenger experience and service quality.
The changes will only affect our departing international passengers and we will continue to handle the international arrivals from the main passenger terminal building”.
