Delhi Airport to Speed-Up Security Checks with This New Feature 

The Indira Gandhi International Airport has been operating domestic as well as Vande Bharat repatriation flights in the country. September onwards, the security checking procedure at the airport will be much faster.

This is because the airport is installing 10 Automatic Tray Retrieval Systems (ATRS), a roller-based set-up that will return luggage trays to the starting point after passengers collect their belongings from it.

Due to this, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel will be able to frisk almost double the passengers it does as of now.

At present, the CISF personnel who conduct the security checks manually collect the trays so they can be reused. However, ATRS will now completely do away with manual intervention, increasing the CISF efficiency by at least 60-75%.

Currently, around 180-200 passengers are cleared through the security checks every hour at Delhi airport. After installation of the ATRS, it is expected that the number will go up by at least 330-350 passengers per hour.


The ATRS will also end passengers’ hassle of looking around for trays and waiting for others to finish using them as the system will continuously circulate the available trays. Up to four passengers can offload their belongings on the trays at the same time.

All 10 ATRS will be functional at terminal 3 by September with further plans to introduce them in other terminals in a phased manner.

This is just one of the many world-class facilities the airport offers. Take a look at the remarkable preventive measures the airport has deployed to ensure passenger safety and comfort amid the coronavirus pandemic:
