The ministry of civil aviation (MOCA) has approved the plan for Delhi airport expansion, which includes a new runway, a new terminal and an internal rail network. The Delhi airport is soon going to have three different terminals for international airlines, low-cost domestic carriers and full-service domestic airlines. Sources said the airport operator of the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) had submitted an expansion plan to the ministry, in view of the growth in air traffic.
T-1 is built on 53,000 sq m area. After the expansion, it will be spread over 133,000 sq m. Ten aerobridges will be constructed and the number of boarding gates will be increased from eight to 25. Other low-cost domestic carriers will be shifted to Terminal 1. Post expansion, DIAL will construct Terminal 4, in the area where currently Terminal 2 is located. Terminal 4 will cater to full-service domestic carriers such as Air India and Jet Airways. Once T-4 is constructed, fullservice domestic operations of Jet Airways and Air India and other such airlines will be shifted there and T-3 will only deal with the international flight operations.
