Delhi Airport: New I-to-I transfer area terminal-3 ready for operations

NEW DELHI: The extended International-to-International (I-to-I) transfer space at Delhi Airport's Terminal 3 Arrivals now is ready for operations.

Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) has constructed the state-of-the-art I-to-I transfer area with extra facilities as part of the continuing expansion of Delhi Airport under phase 3A to make a passenger's connecting journey hassle-free.

To prepare Delhi Airport for the future, many extensive developments and modernization projects are included in the ongoing Phase 3A extension work at DIAL. The Delhi Airport's passenger handling capacity will rise to 100 million passengers per year (MPPA) after Phase 3A expansion construction is finished in 2023, while the airside capacity will rise to 140 MPPA. 

Approximately 3,000 square metres make up the newly expanded I-to-I transfer space, which is twice as big as the old one. For the convenience of travellers, the extended transition area will contain seven (7) Food and Beverage (F&B) and retail counters, ten (10) check-in desks, fifteen (15) frisking booths, and eight (8) X-ray machines. Only one F&B and retail counter, six check-in counters, eleven frisking booths, and four X-Ray machines were there earlier.

If there is enough time before their flight, passengers will be able to buy, eat, and unwind at the F&B and retail kiosks. Similar to how more check-in desks, X-Ray equipment, and frisking booths will speed up and simplify international transfers.
The I-to-I transfer area needed to be expanded to make room for Terminal 3's rising demand for international transfers. Due to this, the floor plate at the Pier A/B connection of Terminal 3's Arrival level has been appropriately expanded.

"At Delhi Airport's Terminal 3, the extension of the International to International transfer area has been successfully finished, and it is currently operational. We are dedicated to giving the guests a top-notch experience. Another step toward bettering Delhi Airport's infrastructure and passenger experience is the newly expanded I-to-I transfer area. Additionally, it would increase the effectiveness of the airport's operations "GMR Group's Dy. Managing Director, I. Prabhakara Rao, said.

DIAL has built the new and expanded T1 Apron, the 4th Runway, and dual elevated Eastern Cross Taxiways (ECT) to connect the Northern and Southern Airfields as part of the overall development plan under Phase 3A. DIAL has also worked on T3 modification projects and Landside developments to improve connection and circulation.
