Indian Airports Photography

Fri Apr 21, 2006 4:06 am

@ the Ministry of Civil Aviation website, I found the following notice. From when has this been effective? It would be just fantastic news!

Cheers,
A.

Annoucement:

Removal of Restrictions on Photography
Hitherto, air passengers in India faced restrictions on photography
at terminal buildings of aerodromes and from inside an aircraft. These
restrictions have now been removed. Photography by passengers of
scheduled flights in terminal buildings of civil aerodromes and civil
enclaves of Defence aerodromes is now allowed. Passengers are now also
permitted to take photographs from inside an aircraft while in flight or
landing/take off at civil aerodromes. However, photography from inside an
aircraft is not permitted at Defence aerodromes.
Live, and let live.

Hopefuly India will become massive in the photo database now  Smile

not excited at all. Thanks to overzealous cops. The tragedy is that the concept of security is opposite over there. If you shoot out in the open its a crime and if you shoot from behind the bushes its fine. In short, so long as nobody notices it's all good.
Long gone are the days when Palam (DEL T1) used to have balcony.

I am glad no one noticed me videotaping at T2 in DEL. I must've videotaped for a good hour (off/on) both inside the terminal and outside from the windows... It wasn't until I had packed away my camera and someone else tried doing the same that I realized it was not allowed back in 1997!
