"While I had to cancel my visit to the T3 opening due to unforseen circumstances, this is one story I take immense pleasure in reporting, writes Martin Moodie.

I have tracked the T3 development closely in recent years and have never been less than deeply impressed by the ambition of the GMR vision and the commitment of its whole team. A few weeks back I helped moderate a concessionaires' conference as the terminal opening neared, and it was clear that a rare combination of pride, passion and partnership had been generated by all the airport's stakeholders.

The new terminal is not only best-in-class in India by a long distance but will also, I believe, rank among the great airports of the world. The commercial offer oozes ambition and the balance between the operational and the commercial breaks exciting new ground not only for GMR but also for the citizens of Delhi. This is truly a great day for India."

If this does not make every forumer here proud, I do not know what does...

Nice modern terminal with traditional touches. just out of curiosity, are the hand gestures on the wall related to Buddhism or Hinduism, or both?

they are related to both. More appropriately, they are 'Indian'. Because these hand gestures are not only a part of meditative 'mudras' in Hinduism and Buddhism, but also one can find them in most Classical Indian dance forms, these gestures.

Interesting and striking sculpture of Surya Deva but I dare say it looks more Oriental than Bharathiyya especially the Crown and the facial features in part...




Love the duty Free section

some great pics. I usually fly to bombay from abroad.. but now I may want to change my itinerary for future trips
Do we expect big increases in airport tax if you're flying into the new airport ?
