Indira Gandhi International Airport said in an official statement, “Attention Flyers: Due to enhanced security arrangements, flyers are requested to reach Delhi Airport minimum three hours in advance for all domestic flights and four hours in advance for all international flights.”
The advisory comes after the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) asked all airports to tighten security following the Kashmir issue.
All vehicles coming to Indian airports will have to go through extensive security checks. A full pat-down search at pre-embarkation security check points, random checks at entry points to terminals and on-ground monitoring of aircraft are some enhanced security efforts currently being undertaken at Indian airports.
We urge all Luxe travellers to kindly take note. Your private Luxe Concierge will account for these delays as part of your itinerary.
