Project Information
In July 2010, the new integrated Terminal 3 of Delhi's IGI Airport was thrown open for passengers to use. It was built as a result of the booming air traffic growth in the Indian aviation.

The new Terminal 3 which occupies 5.4 million sq ft has been designed by HOK and is capable of handling 34 million passengers/annum. The interior designers of this new terminal are the Australian designers Woodhead. Construction of this terminal was carried out by Larsen & Toubro and completed in just 37 months.

The terminal has 168 check-in counters, 78 aerobridges at 48 contact stands (gates), 30 parking bays, 95 immigration counters and 15 X-ray screening areas.

more info on the future of the airport from a news article:

Quote:

New integrated terminal to go domestic by 2020

The new integrated passenger terminal (Terminal 3) set to come up at IGI Airport ahead of the 2010 Commonwealth Games which will cater to both domestic and international passengers is to be eventually converted to a domestic terminal by 2020.

When Terminal 3 is converted to a domestic terminal, all international operations will be shifted to a brand new international passenger terminal (tentatively called Terminal 4) which will come up at the same place where the international terminal currently stands.

Senior Delhi International Airport Private Ltd (DIAL) officials say until the new terminal is built, certain changes will be effected to deal with the growing air traffic. Soon, Terminal 1A will be thrown open to other airlines besides Indian (Airlines) and Kingfisher.

"The existing international terminal is likely to be demolished by 2015 after which there is a plan to come up with a new international terminal at the same location," Delhi International Airport Private Ltd (DIAL)'s Chief Development Officer I Prabhakara Rao said.

"Also, we plan to construct another international terminal (Terminal 5) in the saturation phase by 2025. So, both these terminals will then take care of international operations while the integrated Terminal 3 will be used solely for domestic operations," he added.

But what happens to the existing domestic airport? DIAL plans to raze the domestic airport by 2020 and clear the area for cargo operations.

DIAL also plans to come up with a brand new Low Cost Carrier (LCC) Terminal (Terminal 6) exclusively to cater to low-cost carriers at the point where Nangal Dewat village and Centaur Hotel currently stand. "By 2008, a low-cost terminal, Terminal 1-C, will come up at the existing domestic airport site. However, this terminal will eventually be shut down once the entire domestic airport is demolished to make way for cargo operations. So by 2020, we plan to have a new LCC terminal at the airport," Rao added.

DIAL officials say the new LCC terminal will be spread over an area of 2.5 million square feet. As per initial projections, the LCC Terminal would be almost the same size as that of the international and domestic terminals by the year 2020.

"Considering the passenger traffic growth in coming years, we have kept sufficient flexibility in our plans and so a lot of things will change over the next few years," Rao added.

During the course of the function, Patel appealed to Chidambaram to reduce duties on aircraft fuel so that every citizen can afford air travel.

In addition to an underground Metro link to the airport, DIAL plans to construct an underground road connecting the airport with National Highway 8.

This is my favorite master plan of all time.
I love the Idea that there are going to be three more terminals the size of T3.
I would have preferred more usage of glass in the structure, especially in the arrival and departures concourse, but none the less it's good.

Attractive and informative info - Thanks IU - Hope this also changes, for the better, the poor perception of IGI Airport in the eyes of the hitherto suffering travellers....national and international...

If this works well - it promises a brand new contemporary airport experience at Delhi - which it so richly deserves being our national capital, showcasing the country. It will lend a halo effect to the economy by 2010 hopefully.

Finally a timeframe for the opening of the new domestic terminal (T1D) has been announced.


according to this news report:

Quote:
The much-delayed interim domestic terminal, that was to open at the start of this winter and ensure end of miseries for passengers on foggy days, is now set to open February-end. ‘‘This terminal (1D) will open between February 20 and 28,’’ aviation minister Praful Patel said.

Impressive! Looks great, although more colour contrast would have been good.

Good to see that ample provision has been made for future passenger traffic growth.
