Days after the Pulwama attack, airports across India were put on high alert and security agencies asked to check all vehicles entering the car parking areas apart from enhancing security at other critical points in and around the airports. The alert was sounded after a threat call was received at the Air India control room in Mumbai regarding the hijacking of a flight to Pakistan.

Following the alert, airlines on some sectors, including those going to Gulf and Pakistan, have been asked to conduct secondary ladder point checks where passengers are checked just before boarding the plane.
