Two new boarding bridges, also known as jet- bridges, along with electronic gates and digital scanning machines will be set up this year at Chittagong's Shah Amanat International Airport.
The announcement was made by Air Vice Marshall Md Mofidur Rahman, chairman of the Bangladesh Civil Aviation Authority, at a mass meeting on Monday.
"We will also create a position for a doctor, because the Civil Aviation Authority does not have one as of now," he added.
At the event, Wing Commander Sarwar E Zaman, manager of Shah Amanat International Airport, said that flights have increased 1.8 times at the airport over the last one year.
He added that they are also trying to improve safety for aircraft as they take off or come in to land at the airport.
Golam Rabbani Reagan, Joint General Secretary of the Chattogram's C&F Agents Association, also spoke at the programme, among others.
