Stay alert from scam porter at the airport

As you walk through arrival hall a friendly person approaches you and may offer to carry your weighty bags or push your trolley for you. Although they appear helpful, they will demand cash payment for helping you. They will not return your possession until you hand overpayment. So be cautious from such scam artists and never let your baggage to touch and keep a close watch on all your belongings.  Your collected luggage should keep in front of you at all time. 

International and Domestic Departure

It is advised to arrive at the airport one hour prior to scheduled departure for domestic travel and three hours for international travel. This allows plenty of time to check-in, obtaining a boarding pass, and clear security before scheduled departure.
