The Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport (CCSIA) in Lucknow has slipped into a silent mode from 07th September 2022.

The silent airport is an initiative to ensure that passengers can enjoy a relaxed journey experience while they utilise their free time for their favourite activities, without getting disturbed by public annoucements.

A spokesperson for the airport said: “Silence in the airport means more time for passengers to read a book, talk to their travel partner, listen to their favourite playlist, or work as per their need. With this initiative, the CCSIA will join the league of airports like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Chennai, and Bengaluru.”

He said that “However, the airport will ensure that no vital information for passengers is missed. So CCSIA will display flight information for passenger convenience at all the 81 Flight information display screens across Terminal-1 and Terminal-2. The screens are placed at strategic locations – outside terminals, in check-in halls, security hold areas and arrival halls of the airport.”

Only announcements relating to change in boarding gates as well as passenger baggage in Level-4 of Inline Baggage Screening System will be made.

Emergency and security-related announcements will continue on the public announcement systems as per requirement, in addition to the mandatory Covid-19 protocol announcements.
