Security at Airports
You have a crucial part to play in thwarting any threat that might be present at the airport, as a traveller. You must notify the CISF Control Room and Terminal Manager of any unclaimed or unidentified baggage, suspicious individuals or activities, or both. Airport authorities have the authority to restrain and discipline disruptive passengers who fall under one of the following categories:
- Drunkenness or drug use that results in irrational behaviour
- Refusing to adhere to safety regulations and standards
- Threats or altercations with an airport official, either verbally or physically
- sexual misconduct or abuse
- any additional unruly behaviour
