Hyderabad: The Cyberabad police commissioner V.C Sajjanar inaugurated a 24x7 women help desk at Hyderabad International Airport on 9 November.
The help desk, located at the arrivals level in the eastern wing, will be manned by a police officer round-the-clock to assist women in need of help or those in distress.
The Hyderabad International Airport works closely with the state police, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), and the security agency Raxa to provide security and assistance to the passengers and the airport staff.
Following the resumption of operations after COVID-19 lockdown, the airport has been handling over 25,000 passengers daily of which female passengers who pass through the airport comprise a substantial number. The commissioning of a dedicated help desk for women further strengthens the security and safety measures for women travelers, visitors, and airport workforce.
"The Hyderabad International Airport has been providing a highly safe and secure environment for passengers, visitors, and airport staff round-the-clock by working closely with the state police. The commissioning of this round-the-clock help desk will reaffirm faith and security for all women who pass through the airport as it is easily accessible and within reach, if they need any assistance," said GHIAL CEO Pradeep Panicker.
CISF DIG M.K Singh and other key officials from the police department, CISF, and the airport were present for the inauguration.
