If you’ve travelled by air before, you know that the hardest part about air travel is the millions of formalities and procedures that you have to go through at the airport. From baggage claim to getting your carry-on luggage checked. Everything is a hassle. Well, in order to ease the hassle a little bit more, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) in Mumbai has started a new facility that will make domestic travel easier.

In a recent post on the popular social media networking platform Instagram, the official account of the Mumbai airport made an announcement. The post said that they would be starting a Domestic-To-Domestic (DTD) transfer facility at the Terminal 2 of the Mumbai Airport.
According to the Instagram post, the facility will give direct access to the concourse of domestic departures. Furthermore, it will also ensure faster processing of the passengers and seamless connections to flights. Moreover, this facility will be operationalised soon which will make things significantly easier for passengers travelling on domestic flights.
What is more, this facility will also have four security lanes that will ensure that the passengers go through security checks faster and long queues can be avoided.
A Welcome Change
This move seems to be much welcomed especially since Indian airports have received a lot of flack for the long hours it takes for passengers to clear all the formal procedures. This move will help with such commotion and certainly help things run much smoother than before.
Since the post was made more than three hours ago, many commenters are applauding this new development at the airport. Many feel that this move was quite overdue and it is about time that Mumbai airports started such a facility.
The post was accompanied by the caption “#MumbaiAirport is thrilled to announce that we would soon be operationalizing a new Domestic To Domestic (DTD) transfer facility at Terminal 2.” The caption also said that “The augmented infrastructure will include 4 security lanes for smooth and comfortable journey.”
