Delhi Airport Nears 100 Million Passenger


The Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) is anticipated to achieve a passenger handling capacity of over 100 million annually with the completion of Terminal 1, which is almost ready and expected to be inaugurated soon. Currently, the three terminals of the airport manage approximately 70 million passengers per year.

Terminal 1, part of the expansion plan’s Phase 3A, is set to double its capacity from 20 million to 40 million passengers handling capacity per year.

At present, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are dedicated to the domestic operations of low-cost carriers (LCCs). The new Terminal 1 will feature several passenger-friendly facilities, including an automated tray retrieval system (ATRS), an individual carrier system (ICS), common usage self-service (CUSS), and self-baggage drop (SBD) kiosks. It will also have 22 aerobridges and 13 bussing gates.

The current expansion phase of the airport involves investments worth Rs 12,000 crore and was launched in 2019 to enable IGIA to handle 100 million passengers a year.
