KIA: 2% of arrivals from nations not ‘at risk’ to undergo random testing

Bengaluru: The Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in the City on Saturday December 4 has stated that two per cent of the passengers coming from countries, which are not in the ‘at risk’ category, will have to undergo random testing on arrival at the airport. This has come in the wake of fresh guidelines issued by the Government of India keeping in mind the Omicron scare on Tuesday November 30.

In a tweet put out in this regard, the Bangalore International Airport Limited states, ”As per the international travel guidelines, 2% of the passengers coming from countries that are not in the ‘at-risk’ list shall undergo random testing at the Airport on arrival. The cost of random testing of such passengers will be borne by BIAL.”

Only two per cent of the total flight passengers should undergo post-arrival testing randomly at the airport on arrival. The two per cent of such travellers should be identified by the concerned airlines, and should be preferably from different countries. The respective airlines or Ministry of Civil Aviation should escort such travellers to testing area on arrival.
