It is amazing that we are here talking about immigration facilities in Trichy Airport. Gone all the days of a sleepy airport with archaic machines and reams of paper to do something as simple of verifying whether the passenger who is about to travel or already in air ready to arrive are in Look out Circular issues by the State and National Law enforcement agencies. Trichy airport with its increasing attention has an integrated system of 12 computers connected to a backbone which can be used to verify the passengers’ travel docs easily by querying with the passport details.

I know that it should be this simple and this should not be a big news item . BUT, the very fact that this is featuring in a newspaper says a lot about where Trichy airport was and the steps it takes to move forward.
