The GHIAL management is constantly engaging with all stakeholders to strategise and work in collaboration to provide a safe and sanitised environment for passengers at the airport after the operations have resumed from May 25, read a statement.

The safety measures at the airport begin from the parking zone of the airport, where besides social distancing markings, digital payment options and other contact-less measures, the airport has also come up with a robust mechanism to provide a sanitised taxi experience for every passenger using the airport-authorised taxi service.
