Hyderabad, May 21 UNI | 2 months ago

Indian Air Force (IAF) will inaugurate Facilitation cum Publicity Cell (FCP) pavilion at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Shamshabad here on May 22.

The FCP will be inaugurated by Air Marshal RG Burli VM, Commandant AFA, a Defence release said here today.

Amongst initiatives taken by the IAF for induction publicity, a major step was to enhance its presence at major airports. The IAF pavilion at Terminal-3 IGI airport in Delhi, set up during October 2012, proved to be a success. It receives a considerable number of visitors on daily basis.

Terminals at airports are vantage points where the commuters have the flexibility to leisurely and comfortably spend time and appreciate various aspects of the IAF.

As the number of commuters through airports which include aspirants and influencers are increasing day by day, setting up of IAF pavilions at major airports with high footfalls would play a major role in building 'Brand IAF'.

While contributing to enhancing awareness about the IAF, FCP would also have a subsidiary function of acting as a nodal point for handling of deceased defence personnel as well as to assist defence personnel and their families in air travel.
