Cut hand baggage, no liquid

If you are flying out of India to any destination in Europe or the US, expect tedious security checks and delays. You are also advised to carry the minimum amount of hand baggage, that too in a transparent plastic carry bag.
All flights from London to India will be delayed between two and six hours. With these flights landing late in India, they will inevitably depart late as well. Some flights, particularly to Heathrow airport, may be cancelled. Heavy security checks in Delhi and Mumbai, similar to the ones after the Mumbai serial bomb blasts, will add to the delays. For instance, aerobridge checks have been re-introduced.
On Thursday, minutes after the uncovering of the terrorist plot to blow up passenger aircraft in the UK, security was beefed up to the highest level at all international airports in India.
While no ban on hand baggage has been enforced in India, airlines advised passengers to carry the minimum amount of hand baggage if travelling to Europe.
