Accessing Terminal 1 vs Terminal 3

(Guest Review by ) I am writing this to inform the uninitiated about reaching Terminal 1 of Delhi's, Indira Gandhi Airport. Terminal 1 is used by a few carriers like IndiGo, Spice Jet etc. If you are traveling from anywhere in Delhi city and have reasonable time at hand(I find metro airport express to be the most reliable mode to travel to Terminal 3 any way), you can use the airport metro a bus combo to reach terminal 1. The information that the metro express provides about how to do this is a bit vague and actually purposefully misleading. If you are traveling from new delhi railway station or any subsequent metro railway station via the metro airport express line, you have two options to switch on to a bus and get to the terminal 1. Option 1 (advertised by the airport express line/Airport authorities, but I think it is not the best option) Get off at the Aerocity station, climb up the escalator and you will see a counter that sells a ticket for a 'shuttle' bus to Terminal 1. I found the shuttle to be packed and almost unbearable. They sardine packed the people and charged 30 rupees for it. Not a big deal but I find it shameful on part of the airport agency to try to charge people when it is really a case of a poorly laid out/designed plan to have the two terminals so far apart. Further, I find it deceptive that they do not advertise the second option at all on the metro. Option 2: Instead of getting off at the aerocity, get off at the next stop which is Terminal 3. At terminal 3 from pillar 9 or 11 (look for signs for shuttle bus), you will be able to board a bus that is operated by the DTC (delhi transport corporation) which is much more frequent (every 15 mins continued >>

(Guest Review) International and Domestic Arrivals: Astonished that international / domestic arrivals hall has no visitor information! I think I remember being surprised on previous visits at how they had only a bare counter (no maps or other printed information), staffed only by volunteers, who tried to be helpful but were not as knowledgeable as paid staff might be. But to now have *no* information available, even though renovations in progress (...a future kiosk?), and tout the 'WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRPORT FOR TWO CONSECUTIVE YEARS,' on eectronic boards and posters - how can that be?!

New Delhi Airport Review

Where: Airside
Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest review) I had a connecting flight from New Delhi International Airport. I arrived at Delhi airport at 11.30 PM from Paris and had to take a early morning flight to Bangalore. Since both arriving and departing flight fromat at the same terminal i.e. T3 I choose to sleep on those comfortable chairs for 5 Hours. It was pleasent and safe too. There were many international flight departing from Terminal T3, but even then it was very quite and felt a bit empty. I had to look for a place to sleep which was away from air conditioning vents as I felt quite cold while sleeping. Bathroom were very clean, in fact they were more cleaner and fresh then those at Paris CDG airport. I have travelled to India through Mumbai airport before also, but arriving at Delhi airport was the best option and most comfortable airport to sleep at specially for long layovers.

New Delhi Airport Review

(Guest Review) On the landside, airport workers shoo you away from sleeping on the floor. The airport security is handled by the central paramilitary force CISF. They do not prevent you from sleeping on the floor, but the airport workers do. On the airside, the options are few. I've slept on floors by rolling inside a blanket.
