Check-In and security

After alighting the bus, went straight to the departure entrance. The security checked my itinerary and identification document and let me in.

Check-In counter took few minutes. I was travelling without check-in bag. Headed for security, got my boarding pass stamped.

Was free to enter the departure area of the domestic terminal. Checked the gate, had many empty chairs as I was early.

Arrival and Exit

Pune being military airport, didn't take any more pic or video. Landed smoothly into Pune. Aircraft was docked to aerobridge. All passenger except those heading to Goa disembarked. Those passengers were few, they had to identify their bags to security, who boarded the flight after Pune bound passengers had disembarked.

I didn't have any check-in bag as out in few mins. While waiting outside, Spicejet to Sharjah was departing. Got picked outside airport and headed off for lunch.

Hope you enjoyed the trip. Thanks for reading.
