Srinagar, July 17:Travel Agents Association of Kashmir (TAAK) on Sunday expressed serious concern over the chaos unfolding at Srinagar airport due to the huge rush of passengers.
In a statement, TAAK said long queues of passengers for baggage scanning and bumper-to-bumper traffic at drop gates have brought the airport to a standstill causing immense stress to the travellers.
President TAAK Farooq A Kuthoo said the Srinagar airport is running beyond its carrying capacity at present however no expansion or extra arrangements have been put in place by the Airport Authority to ease the rush, especially for departures.
TAAK said the huge rush of travellers and Yatris is making Srinagar airport overcrowded which authorities need to manage with extra manpower and machinery.
TAAK urged the LG Administration to impress upon the Airport Authority of India and the central government on the mega expansion of the airport so that it meets the international standard and is compatible with the current rush of arrivals and departures.
