The Lucknow airport announced on Sunday that it has established a virtual chamber to ensure quicker clearance of visitors’ hand luggage, omitting the need for travelers’ actual presence to check any forbidden items.
At the Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport, the audio-video communication system has been erected next to gate 1 in the domestic terminal 2 security holding area.
Without going to the In-Line Baggage Screening (ILBS) area, passengers can use the virtual reunion room (VRR). To remove any restricted or forbidden items from their luggage.
