Along with Delhi and Mumbai airports, Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport has made changes to the queuing arrangements at the curbside (city side), check-in halls, security check areas and boarding gates, with social distancing reminders.

Once the GMR-led airport reopens, travellers are requested to wear masks and maintain social distancing norms.

According to a release, “Deep sanitisation and fumigation of the entire airport building, which spans seven levels and an area of 1,27,000 sqm, is being conducted zone-wise daily. A team of over 100 professionals has been deployed to carry out frequent disinfection drives at the airport.

“Regular sanitisation of high contact surfaces such as desks, chairs, elevators, railings, CUSS (Common-use self-service or self-check-in kiosks), trolleys, handles, trays, baggage belts, etc. inside the terminals is being carried out and will continue when the airport reopens. Apart from these, the daily frequency of sanitisation of each washroom will be enhanced. Sensor-based automatic hand sanitiser dispensing machines are being strategically placed across the terminal building for use by passengers and airport staff.”

Airport officials also said that all payments at the airport would now be contactless and digital.
