Now Airline Passengers Have To Go Through Additional Security Check Before Boarding

National News, News

Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has instructed airports to perform a “Secondary Ladder Point Security” or SLPS as a result of the Pathankot terror attack. Under SLPS, all passengers have to undergo an extra layer of security check just before boarding the flight via the step-ladder or the aerobridge. At this point passengers will be frisked and their cabin baggages will be checked.At many of the important airports, passengers are being asked to remove shoes, watches, belts and other accessories which are then being scanned via the x-ray scanner.

Airport Security Check

At least 30 to 40% passengers are being randomly checked as well. These procedures are causing delays in the boarding process and the SLPS is supposed to add even more complication. An airline official said, “SLPS is a very time-consuming process where passengers have to be frisked again and their cabin bags opened just before boarding point. The maximum delays are being caused at this point.” All passengers are being urged to reach the airports at least 3 hours before flight.
