Parking facilities and charges in Vijayawada
This is a novelty, which is provided to not only the passengers of the various domestic as well as international flights but also to those who come to see their near and dear ones off. This approach was initially started off as a manual approach, which was later transformed, into a complete mechanical and computerized setup, which is now controlled, by state of the art machinery and robotic mechanisms. This is because when the entire setup was manually based then there used to be several instances of traffic congestion and long queues of traffic jams, which would create many instances of pandemonium and public commotion. This would add on to the nuisance of the authorities and was ultimately mutually decided upon to be completely replaced or done away with, as there were many complaints from a variety of people regarding this flaw in the movement of traffic. Besides with the improvement in the multi level parking space inside the premises of the airport has also made way for a huge amount of space for not only domestic vehicles but also for commercial vehicles to say the least. Moreover the parking system has now become more of a cakewalk what with the introduction of world class systems to bring the vehicles regarding their places of parking and there strict mode as well.
