1. What should a first time flier(domestic) know and follow before take off? Please give a detailed answer.

2. Is the ticket(MAA to BLR) and a govt id( enough?

3. Are voter's id or pan accepted id's?

4. Where are the lounges in the airport? After the security checks near the gate or somewhere else?

5. How long before can you get into a lounge?

6. When should you leave the lounge for departure? And go to the gate?

7. Can you get into lounge with your friend's card? Rupay platinum? Or a family member's card who is not there?

Your help will be much appreciated.

Reach the airport sufficiently early, Say -2 hrs STD

Airport queues can be pretty long in peak hours.

Take a note of restricted articles in both check in

and cabin baggage

For check-in baggage keep all electronics/laptops ,cables etc at a separate compartment as security staff will ask

to keep them separately for security check

Find the boarding gate and be near the gate at the boarding time mentioned on boarding card

If any change in gate no: later do find them in display boards or follow fellow pax.

2. Sufficient

3.should be OK (reliable identity proof) - Aadhaar ,Driving license, govt id cards are used by most pax

4. Before the boarding gate after the security check mostly.

5. 3 hours

6. At the boarding time printed on the boarding card - much earlier than gate closure time

(gate closes 30-40 mins before departure). Do consider distance from lounge to gate

7. Normally lounge access only if the card belongs/identical to pax name

Thank you. If you are only Carrying a backpack, do you still have check in with the airline?

What about web check in?

Someone said powerbanks are not allowed if you do self check-in. Is that true?

Thank you in advance.
