Coimbatore Airport to get more facilities

Installation of Flight Information Digital System (FIDS) boards, Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) and SMS facility for passengers are in the final stages at the Coimbatore Airport and are likely to be inaugurated within the next seven to 10 days, says Airport Director K. Peter Abraham.

Mr. Abraham says that the facilities under FIDS inc
lude provision of information through LCD display boards and video walls and the total project cost is around Rs. 1 crore. The measures are part of the exercise taken up to modernize the airport.

A total of 74 digital boards will be installed to keep the people informed on the departure and arrival status of flights. Two of the boards will be outside the airport for the visitors, while the rest will be in front of the various airlines counters and arrival and departure halls. These boards will replace the 15-year-old conventional flight information board.

In addition, passengers or their relatives/friends wanting to see them off or coming to the airport to receive them can get to know the flight status by dialling 2573100/ 2574100 to access the IVRS. For accessing flight status related information, passengers can also send in a text message i.e., SMS to 94422-64287/ 94422-64297 with the flight code. These facilities relieved the people from problems related to constantly busy telephone lines, call waiting etc.

The facilities are expected to provide information on flight status on a real time basis.
