Airports make security checks disabled-friendly

Airport security officials have started using handheld detectors to check disabled passengers who come in wheelchairs and those with prosthetics.

As per reports, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) have been trained to use handheld explosive trace detectors.

The new system is being started along with Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).

Also, there is a special queue for disabled passengers. They need not have to get up from their wheelchairs and remove their prosthetics at security checks after check-in.

The officials hope to improve the process further to make it problem-free for disabled passengers.
