No worries if you reach early as the airports are now an exciting place to shop and do other activities. So you eventually get time to explore the airport.

  • Keep your tickets handy, or it’s better if you have your e-tickets.
  • Keep your documents ready and head towards your airline section. Get your baggage scanned and head towards the check-in counter to collect your boarding pass. It’s better if you’ve checked in through your smartphone. 
  • Weigh your baggage on the counter, get it tagged and sent off to the plane. You can carry your hand baggage with you. 
  • Move to your terminal and go through the security check. 
  • Once you are done with the checking, you are not all set to board. 
  • Pay attention to the announcements made related to your flight. Check your phone and e-mail for the announcements if you are at a silent airport or keep your eyes on the display.
