Security-check timinigs & Baggage Policy:
Most Airports & Airlines follow the 2 hours drill - 30 minutes for Boarding pass & Baggage Check-In, 45 minutes for security check & 45 minutes for Boarding & Gates close, prior to the flight departure time. While the Gate-Close timing is stringently followed by the Airlines with no exceptions made after the last 45 minutes time-slot is missed out; the 45 minutes time-slot is an average requirement for security-check and may vary in duration at different times & at different Airports.
For International flights the drill is extended up to 3 hours prior to flight departure time, keeping in mind the additional time required for the mandatory Customs & Immigration checks.
Please refer to the specific requirements and announcements made by the Airport & Airlines, from time to time and flyers are advised to strictly adhere to them for their Check-In times & Baggage Policy.
