New Delhi Indira Gandhi Intl

New Delhi, India

About The Airport

India's busiest airport has 3 terminals, and is named for India’s first and only female Prime Minister. Terminal 2 has undergone a major upgrade and was reopened to the public in October 2017, allowing an expansion project to begin at Terminal 1. Terminals 1 & 2 are served by domestic and budget airlines, and Terminal 3 welcomes both domestic and international passengers. The airport has won several awards since T3 came into operation in 2010.


Free Wi-Fi is only available if you have an Indian mobile number. Check in to one of our lounges for dedicated Wi-Fi access.

Getting to and from the airport

Indira Gandhi International Airport is 16km from New Delhi city center.

Taxi - taxis are available around the clock outside the terminal buildings; get a prepaid taxi at the counter and give the receipt to the driver at your destination. If you're in Delhi you can hail a ride to the airport in any of the black-and-yellow cabs that serve the city.

Bus - frequent airport express buses run between Terminal 3 and Connaught Place, New Delhi's financial and business center, as well as Kashmiri Gate Interstate Bus Terminal.

Train - the fast, convenient Delhi Airport Metro Express stops at Terminal 3, Delhi Aerocity (with a shuttle service to Terminal 1) and Connaught Place. Tickets can be purchased from the machines outside Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 Arrivals. The Magenta line of the Delhi Metro also runs from the airport – it can be boarded from Terminal 1D.

Car rental - several companies have offices at the airport, but driving in Delhi is difficult and many travelers advise against it. It’s common for foreign visitors to hire a private car with a driver for a relatively inexpensive fee. Hotels, tour operators and online booking portals provide this service.
