India’s state-owned carrier has asked its passengers to report to airports well on time to avoid delays after agencies have scaled up security measures.

In a statement on Monday, the national carrier announced:

In view of the recent security alert in the country, 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. To avoid any delays to the flight departures owing to these procedures, Air India requests its passengers to report at the counter well in time for check-ins

At present, domestic passengers are required to report to the 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 hours before take-off.

As per the aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) mandate, check-in counters for domestic passengers close 45 minutes before scheduled departure, and for international flights, counters close 60 minutes prior to departure.
