Jet Airways' International guests to transfer directly to Domestic flights through CSIA's international terminal security hold area.
April 10, 2013
The Mumbai International Airport has assigned gate numbers 4 and 5 in the security hold area for incoming international guests of Jet Airways, wishing to connect to their domestic flights. Guests will be transferred to the domestic terminal to board their flights directly. The security hold area will be open between 0300 hrs and 0700, providing major relief to the arriving international passengers.
Guests arriving by Jet Airways flights between 0230 hrs and 0645 hrs and connecting to domestic flights will now transfer through the new security hold area. Guests still have the option to leave the international terminal and go on their own to the domestic terminal if they wish to do so.
Incoming passengers connecting to domestic flights are required to clear Immigration and Customs formalities, collect their bags from the conveyer belts and have them screened. Once completed, guests may proceed to the domestic transfer check-in counter to drop their bags, proceed to the security hold area in Terminal 2C, complete their security checks and board their respective flights. The security hold area has refreshments and light snack facilities along with wash rooms.
Sudheer Raghavan, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways said “The introduction of this facility will to a large extent reduce the hassle of passengers waiting for the inter-terminal coach to be taken to the domestic terminal and having to go through security checks again. It will also help Jet Airways to improve its on time performance and decongest the security hold area of the domestic terminal.About Jet Airways
