Hyderabad Airport launches India’s first express check-in

GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), which operates Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), today said it has become the first airport in the country to provide a pre-embarkation security check right at the terminal’s entry gate. 

An Express Security Check facility has been set up at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), Hyderabad, to ensure that domestic passengers have a smooth air-travelling experience.This will serve as ‘Express Security Check’ facility for domestic passengers travelling without any check-in baggage.

OP Singh, DG, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) inaugurated this facility today in presence of SGK Kishore, CEO, GHIAL and other dignitaries from CISF and GHIAL, the airport operator said in a release.

The domestic passengers, after printing their boarding pass from the newly installed ‘self-service kiosks’ located conveniently at the departures forecourt area outside the terminal building, can now enter the Express Security Check lane without getting into the check-in area and head straight towards the boarding area, it said.
