Airlines issue traffic advisory ahead of Donald Trump's visit for passengers
New Delhi : One day before the US President Donald Trump is scheduled to land in Ahmedabad for his two-day India visit, the airlines have issued an advisory to its fliers in the wake of VVIP movement and heavy security deployment enroute to airport.
Congestion and roadblocks are expected during Donald Trump's arrival and the passengers have been asked to carry some extra time with a hard copy of their ticket and photo IDs.
"We expect heavy traffic, roadblocks and stringent security checks en route Ahmedabad Airport between 8 am to 4 pm on Monday, owing to the VVIP movement. Passengers travelling to the airport must carry a hard copy of their itinerary and photo-ID to access the blocked roads. No accompanying persons will be permitted to proceed. Please keep a tab on live traffic and report at the check-in counter at least 3 hours prior to the departure time," SpiceJet said in a statement.
Air carriers Vistara and IndiGo airlines have also issued a similar advisory to their passengers.
Earlier in the day, Union Home Minister Amit Shah arrived in Ahmedabad to review the final preparations for Trump's visit to the city.
The US President is scheduled to take part in a roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and address the ''Namaste Trump'' event at the newly-constructed Motera stadium, the world's largest cricket ground with a seating capacity of 1.10 lakh.
