Airlines operating out of the Terminal 1 (T1) of the Mumbai airport now provide self-bag drop (SBD) facility to passengers, making it the only terminal with such a fully-automated check-in system.
The airport operator has also extended the check-in facility to a host of five-star hotels in the city, enabling the passengers to collect their boarding passes from the hotel itself.
All the airlines operating out of T1 of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) are now on SBD facility, making T1 the only terminal in the country to have a fully-automated check-in system.
Mumbai International Airport Ltd, which runs the Mumbai airport, is the joint venture company between a GVK-led consortium and the Airports Authority of India.
In June this year air traffic numbers increased around 20% on the previous year – signs of strong economic growth.
