The bureau of Civil Aviation Security has issued advisories asking airport operators to increase security measures over the next few weeks.
NEW DELHI: The decision to increase security measures at Delhi Airport is seen as a response in the wake of revocation of Article 370 earlier this week.
The airport authorities have issued an announcement for all flyers who are planning to take a trip within the next few weeks. “All flyers are requested to reach the airport minimum 3 hours in advance for all domestic flights and 4 hours in advance for all international flights,” The Delhi Airport tweeted on its twitter handle on Wednesday.
Attention Flyers: Due to enhanced security arrangements, flyers are requested to reach #DelhiAirport minimum 3 hours in advance for all domestic flights and 4 hours in advance for all international flights. [1/2]

Another tweet read that, “the entry to meters and greeters area will be barred with effective from 10th August to 20th August 2019. Any inconvenience caused is regretted.”
This essentially means that no visitor passes will be issued for 10 days starting Saturday and flyers have to reschedule a longer waiting time at the airport. Previously, you could walk into the airport an hour before the scheduled departure of domestic flights, and 3 hours for international flights.
