Air India advises passengers to report 3 hrs before flight departure

12 January 2016

Air India has issued an advisory to its passengers to report 3 hours prior their flight departure. “In view of the recent security alert in the country, passengers/baggage may have to undergo more stringent checks at airports,” reads the advisory. To avoid any delays to the flight departures owing to these procedures, Air India has requested passengers to report at the counter well in time for check-in.

The minimum reporting time for domestic flights is 75 minutes and for international flights it is 150 minutes before the scheduled departure of flights. Currently, check-in counters for domestic flights close 45 minutes before scheduled time of departure. For 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.
