Bengaluru, Jun 14: Being a pioneer in introducing innovative measures, the Kempegowda International Airport here has introduced a dedicated crew only terminal for the airline staff.

The crew only terminal, located in close proximity to the airline offices, seeks to decongest the main terminal and well as provide crew easy access in and out of the airport.

With over 90,000 passengers and over 600 aircraft movements every day, the Bengaluru airport is currently the third busiest airport in India.

Catering to the spiralling growth of passenger traffic, BIAL has always focussed on innovation to offer a seamless experience to passengers, airline operators and other stakeholders.

BIAL chief operating officer Javed Malik said, “BIAL has been a pioneer in airport innovation and the introduction of the crew terminal is testimony to that spirit of innovation. We are always looking for ways to improve the stakeholder experience at our Airport.”

With the new crew-only terminal, airline crew will no longer have to encounter queues at Security check-points at the main terminal, as the facility will provide hassle-free entry to the airside.

The facility will be operational round the clock and will help crew complete security checks in less time before proceeding to the aircraft. This initiative is aimed at further reducing waiting period for passengers during security checks at the main terminal.

On an average, 350 to 400 crew members depart through the new facility each day and the numbers are expected to touch over 500-600 in the coming days.

Currently the terminal will only cater to domestic departing crew while international crew will continue to use the main terminal to complete their mandatory immigration and regulatory formalities.
