Bring Branded Power-banks Alone: Cochin Airport Tells Its Passengers


In an apparent effort to beef up security within and outside the Airport, the Cochin International Airport has instructed passengers not to bring below-par quality power-banks but only branded power-banks. The move has been necessitated following reports that at times, these power-banks might even serve as ‘high-volatile’ explosives.

Routine security check during the past couple of days revealed that a few passengers have been ‘secretly’ taking power-banks, which are used merely to charge the mobile phones. The secrecy in this regard alerted the officials who took up the issue with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of Govt. of India.

As a result, the DGCA advised Cochin Airport officials not to allow passengers boarding/alighting at the Airport to bring below-par quality power-banks and use only branded power-banks. Read More…
