The facility enables passengers to have real-time conversations with Airport staff located remotely, over touch-free video. “A passenger simply has to stand in front of the Virtual Desk, thereby activating the sensors, to begin the interaction”, it said. Passengers can avail this facility round the clock on information related to BLR airport, facilities, flights, F&B and transport. This service is currently available in English, Kannada and Hindi.
