Additional security systems at Mumbai International Airport

Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on August 25, 2011

Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) has installed additional security systems in the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA). This comes after an aviation security order by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security. MIAL has commissioned standalone X-ray Baggage Inspection Systems to screen passengers, staff and visitors. The systems were installed citing the need to screen entries at the gates of the CSIA. Additional devices like Explosive Trace Detectors and Hand Held Metal Detectors will complement the security screening system. CSIA will be the first Indian airport to implement the process after the order by BCAS. The systems have been installed at all entry gates. Trained CISF personnel will conduct random checks at all the entry and departure gates. In all, there will be seven X-Ray Baggage Inspection Systems, four Explosive Trace Detectors and 14 Hand Held Metal Detectors across the domestic and international terminals.
