Expecting a considerable increase in flight operations post-bifurcation, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is leaving no stone unturned in beefing up security at Gannavaram airport. It will plug all loopholes and take measures to ensure foolproof security to passengers.

Airport Director B.G. Patil, in coordination with the Assistant Commissioner of Security of Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), had recently convened a meeting to discuss security measures.
