§ Sir Knox Cunningham
asked the Minister of Aviation what is the reason for preventing passengers from aircraft arriving at gate 6 of the civil airport at Aldergrove in County Antrim from walking to their luggage on ground level without having to go up a ramp and come down stairs to reach the same place.
§ Mr. Marten
The object of the present arrangements is to get passengers away from aircraft manoeuvring areas and under cover as quickly as possible. An additional baggage claim area is to be built, opening directly on to the aircraft apron, which will enable passengers arriving at aircraft stand No. 6 to enter at ground level and collect their luggage.
