Turning into a Missed opportunity

by web-administrator (November, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) When T3 in Delhi opened, it was an almost incomprehensible improvement on both the old airport and airports in general in India. Now with a bunch of other airports being upgraded in India it still holds its own but small things rankle. The limited half hour free wifi and the appalling coverage and speed is just embarrassing for an international airport today. Maintanence standards have fallen. On the other hand, it still seems to have capacity to spare despite handling all non-low cost domestic and all international flights. And it is a silent airport with NO flight announcements. That is the single most beautiful thing about the airport, the glorious silence of it.

Sleeping equipment

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Nirgal) I was totally amazed to see all the nice equipment for sleeping in that airport: 1. Sleeping pods are cubicles at the far end of the terminal, you might have to pay. 2. Nice 'transat' chairs. Free.

Accessing Terminal 1 vs Terminal 3

by web-administrator (August, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(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 >>

No Information for Visitors

by web-administrator (June, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(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

by web-administrator (October, 2015)


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

by web-administrator (August, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(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.

Delhi IGI T1 Domestic Terminal

by web-administrator (April, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Indigo has said us that T1 is a silent Airport but other two airlines were very well announcing all information about flight departure, final boarding with passengers name. I need documentation of that silent declaration, which is not available with anyone.

Good couches and options after check in

by Aneki (August, 2015)


Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Airside
Pros: Plenty of options for sleeping
Cons: No beds ;)


I'm a solo female traveler and I've spent one night at the Delhi Airport waiting for a connection flight that was leaving at 5am. It is not true that you cannot get boarding passes for connecting flights outside of India (as I've read in another review). I was flying in from Thailand (and flying out to Abu Dhabi) and could get a boarding pass after checking in for my first flight (an internal one to Bangkok) as usual, so I didn't get out of the airside area. The area is HUGE and there are plenty of options: some couches in the shopping area (I guess that was the 3rd floor, near Mango and many fashion shops), some seats (with or without armrests) and PLENTY of carpeted areas, so you're guaranteed to find a quiet spot. If you have a basic camping mattress you are sorted. Being in the middle of the shopping area, the couch section can be noisy, but hey, it's an airport and if you're up to spending the night there you probably have your earplugs and eye mask with you, don't you? :) Most restaurants accepted the main foreign currencies too, toilets were clean. I couldn't get the internet to work, but I didn't try too hard. All in all a good experience. Asian airports are the best!!

New Delhi Terminal 3

by web-administrator (January, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) This is totally new airport in kept in mint condition. Tons of choice for Duty Free both at departure and arrivals. There are always attendants cleaning the bathroom right after you use it. Staff is friendly and courteous. Ample of choice for food starting from a Food Court style restaurant to a fine dining. Ample of bright lighting, net and clean carpet, ethnic decoration art effect. Automatic Walkways covering the length and breadth of the airport. Ample of space at immigration and huge space to stand in lines without being suffocated.

(Guest Review) Fix the roof in baggage claim; having a poorly secured plastic tarp over the bag carousel worked wonderfully to collect the leaking rainwater and funnel it directly onto the baggage as it rotated on the carousel. What a goat rodeo!

New Delhi Airport Review

by web-administrator (June, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) The newly renovated airport has a great sleepability factor, since the security never presses you to get lost, areas are vast and not populated, it is secure, even Delhi Police recommends it for late night travellers to better stay overnight than to take a private cab or metro after 11 pm. Once a security personnel told me to be stay aay from the glass wall, while i was over the phone, but that was a security issue, I went away and sat over a broad and comfortable steel reclined bench and no issues from the security. Most important, the halls are completely carpeted and it absorbs most of the noise, so unlike the city Delhi, the airport is pretty calm and sleepable.

New Delhi Airport

Pros: -
Cons: -


)email submission from MRH) I believe you have missed out the awful conditions for transit passengers at New Delhi Airport. International pax who arrive late in the evening and have a next day flt, (say within 12 hours), will find that their airline counter is closed which means they are unable to get a boarding card. Without a boarding card - even if you've self-checked-in - security will not allow you to enter the departure lounge. So, if you don't want to pay a Visa fee of over US50 as well as taxi fares and hotel costs, you are have to spend the night in the Transit area. This consists of a bunch of very uncomfortable chairs with a coffee machine available. The airport claims that 'improvements' are in the works, but it has been this way since the airport opened. It is pretty bad.Many people come from Nepal etc and have to sit in the horrible chairs all night.
