Following Metro Cities, Pune Airport Might Go ‘Silent’ Soon
The move to go ‘silent’ has been initiated in a bid to reduce increasing noise pollution at the airport.
Passengers travelling via Pune airport might have to be more alert if the Airport Authority of India clears the airport’s proposal to go silent. This means that like the airports in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai, there will no longer be boarding announcements, and that the passengers should rely completely on digital display boards.
According to The Indian Express, a senior AAI officer said that the matter has been discussed with the airline operators, and has been sent to the Western Region’s AAI headquarters in Mumbai for final approval.
The move has been initiated in a bid to reduce increasing noise pollution in the airport. Speaking to The Indian Express, Pune Airport Director Ajay Kumar said,
After discussing with the airline representatives, it was agreed that to save everyone from the peril of noise pollution, it would be a great step to make Pune Airport a ‘silent airport’.
A final word from the Mumbai’s headquarters is expected to be announced soon.
