Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Is it just me or does everyone feel the same as well that Amritsar Airport is like a Police Station where they search you about 50 times especially if they find a Kirpan on you (even a minature) and when you get your luggage about 50 people more come up to you to help out for some Rupees they way they search ur passports and photos as though they are the FBI and dont be polite and talk with their hands (ie make gestures) etc

But they have improved the building looks modern last time i went it was like a bus stop

I found it surprise that Indira Gandhi International Airport Delhi was okay and they just look at your passport once

Yh i went through Heathrow airport with a small salai under my pag,and got through security the allowed me,But as was comming back to London from amritsar airport i got through security,then as i was walking up the runway to board the plane some hindu copper pointed a gun at me!!!!!and pulled me outdragged me inside and goes give me the salai i refused and argued for over an hr,and he wnt on about how he knew sikhism and so on and how they had the best security in the world(really pees me off panajb police searching me)then i thought ok have the salai im better than you im more civilsed you dogs may run this airport now with your indian govt rules but the day will come very soon when we will have our own airport in Khalistan.That thought brought a smile to my face and a certain degree of saddness to see Panjab under occupation and how it is being destoryed socially,economically,religiously and environmentally,along with the destruction of Sikhi,they are destroying the beautiful land,pollution is everywhere,plastic bags which never decompose lie in rivers,the UN predicts by 2025 it will be a desert if water keeps being diverted to other states,the thought of this as i was flying up into the clouds brought tears to my eyes seeing panjab from above,and to think at one time the great gurus roamed these lands,and how we had khalsa raaj,

story about me Amritsar Airport

couple of years ago they were about to send me back saying the passport isnt yours etc

and one guy with a turban saying to me youv taken Amrit so dont lie to us etc

as Sant Jarnail Singh Jee said over 20 years ago

"Every Amrit Dhari Gursikh is a dangerous bomb for the Indian Goverment"

made sense to me on that awful day :)

Don't get taken in by posts saying that Amritsar airport is a hassle and going through Delhi is a breeze. These types of posts and false rumours are being circulated by vested interests. As more and more flights and passengers land in Amritsar the more income Delhi loses. I went to Punjab in December last year and I had no problems and I wear a Dastar. The arrangements for luggage such as a Tractor to move the luggage from the plane to terminal is basic but it does the job! Depending on how far the plane lands from the terminal you either walk 50 yards from plane to terminal or 250 yards by transfer bus. The service at the Airport is good and I had not problems at immigration. The luggage came on time and from the time the plane landed to when we got out of the Airport was about 40 minutes. This is because unlike Delhi where the immigration queue is packed the queue in Amritsar was light because usually only one flight lands at a time. There were 3 immigration officers on duty, Delhi usually has six.

As for the other scare stories. Porters do approach you to take their luggage but unless you have the mental age of 5 then you tell them that you can handle your own luggage and they'll leave you alone. The good thing about Amritsar is that the people who have come to drop you off can come and stay in the terminal for a fee of 35 rupees each. Unlike Delhi where they have to wait in a building across the road. The number of trolleys in Amritsar are sufficient unlike in Delhi where once when we arrived at departures some Bhayyas had got hold of all the trolleys and were charging 100 rupees to passengers to use a trolley! Even though passengers had already paid something like 800 rupees as airport tax. Toilet facilities are also good and they are clean like Delhi. There is no STD PCO facility there but as most passengers have mobiles then it doesn't present a problem. There is a good restaurant and a fast food joint at the Airport and prices are expensive but then you would only eat at the Airport in an emergency as there are so many good restaurants on the road to the Airport. The terminal building is new being opened only a few years ago. Being a smaller airport than Delhi I've found it actually takes less time to go through Amritsar than Delhi.

I've been going to India through Delhi for the last 15 years and this was the first time I went via Amritsar Airport and to be honest I will never go through Delhi again. If you look at all the disadvantages of Delhi for passengers going to Punjab then you can understand why more and more passengers are going through Amritsar. The journey from our village in Ludhiana district to the Airport took a little over 2 hours. The journey from Delhi is about 7 hours. It is easier for relatives to get to the airport unlike Delhi. If you want to hire a good sized vehicle to take you and relatives to Amritsar airport it's about 1600 rupees round trip, to Delhi the same vehicle will cost you at least double.

Although the talk of a new airport at Halwara would be ideal of us, the journey from village to airport would be 20 minutes but I would still rather have Amritsar developed to become a first class airport rather than have two international airports in Punjab.

"ONE" of the reasons y they suspect so much at amritsar airport is coz many punjabis who go abroad on fake visas and fake passports board planes frm amritsar. But this might be just one of the reasons rest we all know how indian govt and most ppl outside punjab see us : as "aatankvadis"
