Suggested Ways To Improve Services
In a series of tweets, Ricky wrote that the steps at the airport or the number of lines to enter the airport can be reduced. He also noticed in the comments that many netizens were naming another country for having the worst immigration process. Ricky Kej replied that the mindset needs to change. That instead of patting our back for not being the worst airport, why not try to be the best. Well, we hope the immigration process at Bengaluru Airport becomes more efficient.
1, 2 and 3 are completely separate lines. Why stand in line after line when the departments can coordinate and get all 3 done together, like in all other nations. The hand baggage screening on arrival is not needed. Even usa it is not done. All just arrived from the plane itself.
