Travel Tips, What's New — By Sanjay Kumar on July 5, 2010 at 8:00 am

Built from ground up in a mere 37 months, New Delhi Terminal 3 (T3) is the sixth largest in the world after Dubai, Beijing, Singapore, Bangkok and Mexico City.

Spread over a massive 5.4 million square feet, T3 integrates the international and domestic terminals in one building. All international carriers and full-service domestic carriers will operate from this swank new terminal. Domestic Low-cost carriers will continue to operate from Terminal 1D.

T3 has 78 aero-bridges for efficient boarding and deplaning, 168 check-in counters for faster passenger processing, 92 automatic walkways for you to move around with ease and a five-level baggage screening system with a 12,800 bags per hour capacity.

A direct, hi-speed metro-link from the city center will be operational in a couple of months. Plus there is a multi-level car parking with a 4,300 car capacity and an eight-lane road link to the city.

Throw in a huge Duty Free, a 100 room hotel, shower stalls, lounge rooms, play areas, lounges, installations inspired by Indian culture…you get the picture. Flying into New Delhi is now going to be a wonderful way to start your love affair with the city.
