PASSENGER ASSISTANCE MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER BEFORE AS TRAVELERS MUST NAVIGATE MULTIPLE CHECKPOINTS AT AIRPORTS
(Posted 07th October 2020)
NAS – Uganda’s leading airport handling company – provides a service which in today’s travel environment is more important than ever before.
The Pearl Assist Service, described in some detail in the article below, provides both departing and arriving passengers with hands on assistance, led through the parcour of security checks, health checks, check in, immigration to ultimately the boarding while arriving passengers are equally let through health check, immigration, baggage pick up to the exit from the terminal after the final security check.
With such services available in over 50 countries across the world, is NAS – one of the world’s leading airport handling agencies – able to ensure that passengers signing up to this kind of service are given advance guidance as to the kind of documentation needed to fly out of or into a particular airport and dedicated staff on location are well versed with local guidelines and circumstances, avoiding the loss of time or worse.
Staff of safari and tour operators are in most airports not able to get beyond the initial security check or enter the terminal – as they are not passengers – and on arrival at a destination airport again have to wait outside the customs exit area, leaving travelers to their own fate and ability to navigate what today has become an often murky and unclear regulatory and guideline environment, given the many changes which have been witnessed in this area over the past weeks.
In Uganda can the service be booked via https://pearlassist.com/meet-and-assist-plus-departure-from-entebbe where the ‘Plus Service‘ then also includes access to the main lounge at Entebbe International Airport.
