Big news for passengers, no problem with flight delay, rules changed

Big relief for passengers: The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has issued new guidelines for the country’s aviation sector. Great facilities have been provided to the passengers through them. Now, after boarding, if the flight is delayed, they can exit the plane and exit the departure gate of the airport. Due to the new rule, passengers will no longer have to sit inside the aircraft for a long time after boarding. Recently, there have been many incidents of passengers getting stuck after boarding the plane. Due to which the rules had to be changed.

After boarding the plane, you will not have to sit inside the plane for long.

BCAS Director Zulfikar Hasan said these guidelines were issued to airlines and airport operators on March 30. These rules will now be implemented and help reduce the inconvenience to passengers. He said that the passengers will not have to sit inside the aircraft for a long time after boarding the plane. Airport operators will have to make infrastructural arrangements including screening to implement the guidelines. However, only airlines and security agencies will be able to allow passengers to disembark from the aircraft.

Why did the laws have to change?

Several incidents of flight delays were reported in January this year. After that, the passengers sat on the tarmac of the airport and started eating. Several passengers got out of the Indigo plane and sat on the tarmac of the Mumbai airport. The flight was going from Goa to Delhi and was quite late. Taking notice of the incident, BCAS had imposed a penalty of Rs 1.80 crore on IndiGo and MIAL.

What else has changed in the new guidelines?

Several other changes have also been made in the new guidelines.

  1. Smart security lenses will be installed at the airport to improve passenger experience.
  2. Full-body scanners at Bengaluru airport will start functioning this month.
  3. Apart from this, scanners will also be installed at airports where more than 5 million passengers are transported annually.
