Many of us have heard people complaining about waiting for a long time to get bags at different airports. Unfortunately, many of us have faced such issues in the past as well. The good news is that the time required for baggage delivery on the conveyor belts has improved to a huge extent in some of the busiest airports in India. Airports in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai have reported checked-in baggage delivery times getting better in the past few months.

According to a report by The Financial Express, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) started a practice back in January 2024 to focus on this issue. The primary goal was to make the services better at the above-mentioned airports. The departments decided to start this plan as there were several problems with passengers receiving their luggage after a long time.

The plan has significantly impacted the entire process as more than 90 per cent of passengers are now getting their baggage within just half an hour of landing at the airport, the Civil Aviation Ministry stated. From January 2024, the duration has surged by 30 per cent. The Civil Aviation Ministry further added that it was only 62.2 per cent of flyers who received checked-in luggage on time in January. From March, the numbers have jumped over 90 per cent.

The process of delivering checked-in luggage on time continues to impress passengers. The initiative of the BCAS and proper advice by the Civil Aviation Ministry are continuing to show great results and the numbers are also improving with time. In May 2024, about 92.5 per cent of luggage was delivered in just 30 minutes. In fact, the International Air Transport Association’s rules state that checked-in baggage needs to be delivered within 30 minutes of landing.
