Following all the recent developments in the country, many major cities have been put on high alert. Needless to say, Delhi is one of these places, mainly because its the national capital and the hub of all administrative activities. However, the high tensions have resulted in a tight security at IGI and the authorities are urging passengers to reach up to 4 hours in advance.

On 7th August, DAIL sent out a tweet confirming that with the recent developments taking place in the North of the country, IGI airport would be put on high alert. In Jammu and Kashmir, tensions are high and it seems that DIAL authorities are taking no chances with people's security.

Since Delhi is the central hub of all activities, it tends to become a major target point that is often put under high security. Owing to the potential threat of terrorist activities the authorities are taking precautionary steps.

As part of the high alert, roads in Delhi will see heightened security and on the whole, the police and army personnel will patrol more areas with greater scrutiny.

The IGI airport is one of the major hotspots in the national capital. Already the airport witnesses a lot of security checks and now each and every passenger will be scrutinized even further.

This may dissuade or offend many people but the necessary precautions must be taken in order to keep the national capital safe. This is exactly why the authorities have demanded that travellers reach the airport 4 hours before time for international flights. For domestic ones, travellers must reach 3 hours prior to take off.

The security checks will be more in depth and thorough with their scanning. As of now, the security check time for an individual takes about a minute but now the plan is to extend that to 2 minutes.

Prior to the recent development, travellers would reach an hour and a half before the flight time as security was not as tight as it is now. In any case, we're glad that the safety and security of flyers as well as Delhiites is being kept in mind.
