Everything you need to know before departing from or arriving to New Delhi Airport

Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport in a nutshell

Krystof Hajek updated 30. 11. 2023

Indira Gandhi Airport is the busiest airport in India and, along with Mumbai, one of the two main entry points into India. The city centre is 23 kilometres away.

You will often come across the abbreviation "IGI" = Indira Gandhi Airport.

Air India, IndiGo, Spicejet and Vistara have their headquarters here. However, all major airlines from Asia, as well as Europe and North America, fly to Delhi.

The airport is well regarded by passengers, especially for its generous and airy international terminal 3 and its clear signage. However, expect to enter the airport building only with a ticket - printed or stored offline on your phone.
