The range of circumstances for which a person requires care is vast and the degree of care required also differs greatly and could be as diverse as caring for someone with an illness such as cancer or diabetes, for someone with a mental health disability, or an aged person in the home who may have a number of health problems.

GVK CSIA is always making efforts to make their passengers experience at the airport seamless and comforting. Understanding that passengers bound for international travel experience anxiety, stress, loneliness sometimes coupled with exhaustion, insomnia or jet lag. Scientific studies show that petting a dog is an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety. Frazzled passengers dealing with delays, missed flights, and gate changes are given the opportunity to do just that when they encounter the “Comforting Angels” patrol.
