SRINAGAR: Srinagar International Airport officials announced on Tuesday that March 28 was the busiest day in the airport's history, with 90 planes carrying 15,014 passengers. "The Srinagar International Airport handled 90 flights yesterday, with a total passenger load of 15,014 passengers, the most ever recorded at this airport."
The previous record was 13,700 travellers per day. There were 45 incoming flights with 7,824 passengers and 45 departing flights with 7,190 passengers on the day before yesterday. We hope to see bigger numbers in the coming months, as the tourism season in Kashmir is only getting started." The problem, according to airport officials, has been to avoid congestion. "Our main concern is that there is no traffic congestion at the airport." We're updating the infrastructure and setting up support desks in a variety of locations to ensure that every traveller is accommodated."
The airport will soon receive a new facility as the number of travellers continues to rise. "In order to accommodate more passengers, a new structure will be constructed. This will assist to alleviate traffic congestion. "At the moment, we are ensuring that there is no congestion at the airport, and a series of initiatives have been taken to achieve this," said Sharad Kumar, the airport's director.
