Passengers taking a flight out of Kolkata's Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport will have to report three hours before scheduled flight departure from Friday until August 20.
The airport authorities have issued the directive as there would be special security screening for all passengers. CISF and airport authorities are also on security alert for incoming flights and have requested passengers to report on time to avoid confusion.
The move comes a day after a bomb scare at the airport when CM Mamata Banerjee was scheduled to fly out. Security authorities want an absolute through checking process to ensure no unfortunate incident takes place, especially with Independence Day celebrations around the corner.
