NEW DELHI: Can you imagine a facility like an airport not equipped with a toilet for visitors? To the contrary, airports are increasingly becoming more user-friendly with passengers flashing through the airport security and immigration – thanks to new and advanced technologies being adopted by the airports.
But Vizag International Airport in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh has no toilet for the visitors.
According to The Hindu newspaper, “there is no toilet near the swanky Terminal Building for visitors to relieve themselves. They cannot go into the building as visitors are not allowed unless they possess an entry ticket. The visitors have no access to the toilets as they are meant only for travelling passengers.”
P. Vishnu Kumar Raju, a local political leader, who inspected the building following complaints from the public, expressed shock at the lack of toilets for visitors near the terminal building.
“The only toilet, which is far off from the terminal building, was locked and even the toilets inside the building are in a bad shape. This would send the wrong signal to international passengers. There are also no boards indicating the location of the toilet for visitors,” he told The Hindu.
The airport is served by all the major Indian carriers like IndiGo, SpiceJet, Air Asia and other carriers.
