Indian airports extend passenger screening amid coronavirus scare


    Source : Airport Technology

    Indian aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has ordered the country’s international airports to extend passenger screening to all travellers arriving from Nepal, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia.

    Airports in India were previously directed to only screen passengers arriving from China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Singapore.

    This move is aimed at limiting the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, which has spread to 32 countries so far.

    DGCA stated that the screening should be conducted ‘once they step out of the specific locations at all the airports’.
