New Delhi: As agencies are scaling up security measures in view of the recent security alert in the country, national carrier Air India, on Monday January 11, urged its passengers to reach airports well on time to avoid delays.

“Passengers/baggage may have to undergo more stringent checks at airports. It is advised that to avoid inconvenience, passengers may report three hours before the scheduled departure of flight,” Air India said in an advisory to its passengers, issued on Monday.

Air India accords utmost importance to the safety and security of its passengers and equipment, it added.

Currently, domestic passengers are required to reach airport an hour before the scheduled departure of their flights while international passengers are asked to report at the airport at least one-and-a-half hour in advance.

As per the aviation regulator DGCA mandate, check-in counters for domestic passengers get closed 45 minutes before the scheduled departure while for the international flights, counters close 60 minutes prior to departure.

Counters for flights (both Domestic and International) operating from International terminals, close 60 minutes before scheduled departure of flight. Boarding gates in both cases close 25 minutes prior to departure.
