Indira Gandhi International Airport is the primary international airport serving Delhi, the capital of India. The airport, spread over an area of 5,106 acres (2,066 ha), is situated in Palam, Delhi, 15 km (9.3 mi) southwest of the New Delhi Railway Station and 16 km (9.9 mi) from New Delhi city centre.
Named after Indira Gandhi (1917–1984), the former Prime Minister of India, it is the busiest airport of India
I first traveled to Indira Gandhi Delhi international airport at the end of Decmeber 2023 from Tbilisi airport by indigo airlines
IGI Airport serves as a major hub or a focus destination for several Indian carriers including Air India, Alliance Air, IndiGo, SpiceJet, GoAir, and Vistara. Approximately 80 airlines serve this airport. At present, there are three actively scheduled passenger terminals, as well as a cargo terminal.
Recently, Delhi Airport operator DIAL has introduced an e-boarding facility for passengers at all the three terminals of the airport, by which all boarding gates will have contactless e-boarding gates with boarding card scanners, which will allow passengers to flash their physical or e-boarding cards to verify flight details in order to proceed for security checks
Despite being named one of the busiest airport in the World, for my surprise we didn't encounter any quees or delays at this airport during our recent travels.
There are several travel options from the airport to the city, like taxi or public transport. As we had organized a tour for us, we were greated by our driver at the exit and transfered to the hotel in downtown.
