MANGALURU: The Mangaluru International Airport, in collaboration with IndiGo, innovated on the airline’s unique ‘Three-Point Disembarkation System’, recently.

The innovation supervised by the airside operations team of the airport, involved the use of a passenger boarding bridge (aerobridge) and two ramps in place of three – two forward and one rear—used by IndiGo previously. The airline in the aviation sector, in a first step globally, had introduced this system to mark its 16th anniversary.

IndiGo, on June 14, 2023, had successfully carried out the three-point disembarkation at MIA, for the first time.

The difference was that the airline on that occasion, had used three ramps. On December 6, flight 6E 6162 arrived from Bengaluru with 227 passengers, and docked with passenger boarding bridge 10. The airline ground staff attached two ramps—one forward and one at the rear—and facilitated the speedy disembarkation of the passengers.

“The airport will collaborate with any new ideas that airline partners bring to the fore, to enhance passenger experience,” the airport spokesperson said.

IndiGo in August 2022, started this new disembarkation procedure on its Airbus A320 and A321 fleet, for flights arriving at remote stands in Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru airports.
