Revised Security Arrangements at BIA
The SLAF was made aware that passengers arriving at and departing from the BIA had to undergo considerable inconvenience because of the enhanced security checks implemented since the 21st of April 2019.  Passengers arriving on flights and passengers arriving for flights had to walk a considerable distance after disembarking from their vehicles or before boarding their vehicles due to the fact that the SLAF was compelled to prohibit entrance of vehicular traffic to the airport entrances.  However, the SLAF is happy to announce that arrangements have now been made to facilitate the entrance of vehicles to the respective gates for drop off and pick up of passengers and to minimize the distance that passengers have to walk with their baggage.  The airport taxi service will also commence at the arrivals terminal exit, so that any passenger wishing to avail of such will be able to book at the terminal and board it just outside.

A detailed graphic describing the new arrangements are displayed for you and will be released to the printed media.   Any passenger arriving at the airport can also consult any airport or air force official for further information about the new arrangements.
