New Delhi, October 27

The government today issued a set of new draft guidelines for aviation sector stakeholders such as airlines and airports to provide ease to disabled air passengers. The Ministry of Civil Aviation said dignity of passengers should be borne in mind during security screening.

In the draft rules, the ministry said when screening passengers with prosthetics, the security may use X-Ray, ETD or visual screening. It said, “A prosthetic appliance, which does not have any foam padding cover under which any weapon can be concealed and in which the steel rod is clearly visible, may be screened by visual inspection and ETD checks only, without removing it.” — TNS
