Sprawling over a 2000-hectare footprint, Indira Gandhi International Airport is the gateway to Rajasthan, and beyond. As India’s busiest airport, it’s capable of handling more than 40 million passengers.
It features all the frills of an international air travel hub, with plenty of opportunities to shop, eat, relax and explore. The new Terminal 3 building steals the spotlight, with the lower floor dedicated to arrivals and the upper floor reserved for departures.
India boasts one of the world’s best railway networks, so it’s no surprise that Indira Gandhi International Airport is easy to reach by train. The closest station is Palam, located 15 kilometres south-west of New Delhi. Most international passengers choose to travel by taxi to the city centre, with the drive taking around one hour depending on traffic.
Named after Indira Gandhi, the airport celebrates the legacy of the beloved former Prime Minister of India. Not only was he the leader of the Indian independence movement, but he was also a passionate civil rights activist and unofficial Father of the Nation. For Indians, flying in and out of an airport named after the legendary leader is an honour.
