I'm pretty certain it will be a long time before the visa system is dismantled after the American David Coleman Headley was found to be instrumental in the 2008 Mumbai attacks (he is currently serving a 35 year jail sentence in the US for his part in the attack). Vetting entrants I think has taken on more importance since then. India has only just lifted the restriction on foreign nationals entering the country more than once in a two month period!

Also, I'm not certain the Indian government would want to change tourist/transit visa conditions for Australians until Australia does the same for Indians.

Yes, BNE01, you're correct that security is a major concern in India, especially due to terrorism, illegal immigration, narcotics etc.

However, India should probably designate "safe countries" such as Australia, Canada etc and make the visa policy more lenient the way India's done for so many other countries such as Germany, Japan, France, New Zealand etc. This could definitely benefit India's economy.

There must be an issue or obstacle that's preventing India's authorities from granting the same flexibility to Australian visitors. It sucks and I wish I had more info on this.

First time contributing here, and I've got excellent news, speaking of Australia...

Air India will resume services to Sydney and Melbourne from Delhi starting 29 August 2013, after 16 years of service suspension. It will be operated daily as...

- 4x weekly Delhi-Sydney-Melbourne-Delhi
- 3x weekly Delhi-Melbourne-Sydney-Delhi

and all services will be operated with B787 aircraft. Flights are subject to government approval, yet reservations for this new service are now available on the GDS since 28 June 2013 (although the airline has not yet opened such reservations on its own website).

Details and schedules:

Delhi – Sydney – Melbourne – Delhi:
Effective 29 August 2013, 4 weekly

AI312 DEL1345 – 0630+1SYD0800+1 – 0935+1MEL 788 x357
AI311 SYD0800 – 0935MEL1050 – 1835DEL 788 x146

Delhi – Melbourne – Sydney – Delhi:
Effective 30 August 2013, 3 weekly

AI312 DEL1300 – 0530+1MEL0700+1 – 0830+1SYD 788 357
AI311 MEL0700 – 0830SYD1000 – 1810DEL 788 146

Map of IGI Airport, Delhi:


source

Terminals 1C & 1D are for domestic low-cost carrier arrivals and departures respectively.

The new Terminal 3 integrates international arrivals & departures along with a section for higher-cost domestic carriers.

Also, there is a cargo terminal as well as a Haj terminal for Muslim pilgrims / visitors.

Presently, the IGI Airport has a capacity for 46 million passengers annually, but last year the airport already handled 39.9 million passengers.
Therefore, the Government has begun planning for Terminals 5 & 6 to increase the annual capacity to 100 million passengers in the next decade.

Now that's a huge gap between T1, T2, and T3... I mean, I wonder how long it'll take for transiting passengers to travel between T3 and T1, given its relative distance between the two. Have there been plans to connect the three terminals by underground people mover trains to ease the transit connections and provide a quicker, more efficient way to travel between terminals? I mean, if I want to connect between a Jet Airways flight and, say, an SpiceJet (LCC flight), it could be quite a while to get between T1 and T3.

Terminal transfers are the responsibility of the Airport.

The IGI Airport provides a complimentary golf cart service as well as a complimentary air-conditioned shuttle bus (pic of bus in reference below) service for passengers, every 20 minutes between all terminals, including between T1 and T3.

T1 is a temporary terminal as per the masterplan. T4 will be built north of T3 as its mirror image (in place of current T2). T5 and T6 will be built east of T3 and T4. T6 will replace T1 as the low cost terminal and T1 will be demolished to re-lay runway 27. In that scenario, all 4 terminals will be next to each other and airport operator may plan people mover or a similar thing to interconnect the terminals.

Flying to Delhi next summer, booking with Air India despite the horror stories. HOW THE HELL CAN THEY CHARGE 700 DOLLARS BETWEEN CHICAGO AND DELHI? Holy dog poop. Seoul to Chicago on either Asiana or Korean cost 2, 3 times that.

Is that American currency or Indian currency? If that was American currency then you got a great deal.

No need for any transit visa. Whoever said that before, didn't understand your question

Transaero Airlines debuts at Delhi with Moscow flights



Transaero Airlines has added a twice-weekly (Thursdays and Saturdays) service from its Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) hub to the Indian capital city of Delhi (DEL). While there is no direct competition, the 276-seat, 767-300-operated city pair will see the carrier face opposition from Air India (four times weekly from Moscow Domodedovo) and Aeroflot (daily from Moscow Sheremetyevo). The 4,352-kilometre sector began on 5 February. Transaero operates a second Indian route, a four times weekly service from Moscow Domodedovo to Goa using its 777s. Maybe surprisingly these four routes are the only current scheduled services between Russia and India.


The Indian capital now connects directly with all three Moscow-area airports.
