CHENNAI: Now no more delayed delivery of baggages in Chennai Airport!
The Airport Authority of India has brought in a new mechanism to monitor the delivery of baggages by the airlines.
The Director of The Airport Authority of India, Chennai, said that the mechanism ‘First Bag Last Bag information’ concept was adopted on Thursday. The move was effected after the repeated complaints regarding delayed delivery of baggage.
Under the system, the person, who loads the baggage, will be given a provision of inputting the first bag information, once he has kept the first bag onto the carousel and similarly punch in the last bag.
The time from the aircraft arrival to the first bag will show how much time the ramp staff of the airlines have taken for baggage delivery, said Shastri.
The time from first bag to last bag will indicate the preparedness in transporting all check-in baggages and through this facility, the AAI and airlines shall be able to identify the carousel utilisation and improve efficiency, he said.
Interestingly, the AAI is also planning to display the information on the status of baggage delivery to the public through available the Flight Information Display System at the carousel.
End of cargo woes
The Airport Authority of India has brought in a new mechanism, the ‘First Bag Last Bag information’ Passenger can put in the data of the bag upon loading, and find at what time it will come off the ramp
