I know it has been posted before in the Indian Aviation thread, but i felt this deserves a new thread on its own.

Its quite marvellous when you see the improvements. Photos are all copyright their owner Mr. Manish Mehta / Zoomscape..

Thanks for posting these pictures! This is the domestic terminal except IC, right? Looks great and I hope they can keep it spotless, especially the bathrooms.

Btw, the new terminal looks impeccable. I wish it stays this way. Cool, modern and airy. Now someone needs to write a TR that includes this terminal.

Yes, its only the departure terminal, the arrival terminal is still 1C

For now, kingfisher, kingfisher red and Indigo have started to use this terminal, around april 26th, jet, jetlite and spicejet will make their move from 1B.

AI/IC will continue to use terminal 1A.

Hopefully, next year this time around, kingfisher, AI, and Jet will move to the integrated T3 and only LCC's will remain in 1D.

Hope the information helps.

Thanks for the details! I agree, it looks impressive.

How do you manage separate arrival and departure terminals - does it imply that aircraft are parked at stands rather than jet bridges?

Wonderful terminal! Does this terminal have finger docks? or just the normal bus gates as can be seen in the last photo..

How is the transit between the domestic and international terminal now? Is it cumbersome or have they made that smooth?

Nice terminal...only a matter of time before Indian bureaucracy ruins it though i.e Delhi police officers asking for your ticket and passport for every nine and a half steps you walk !!

Well not surprising, since India has faced terrorism for many more years than any of the "western" countries.


Most of the Indians would complain, but hey, if we shut the hell up at US security, who are we to complain at our own?

 smile  Well said....

But I do agree with the "nine and half steps" thing.....although my experiences are all BOM based.....they need to increase the gaps between the checks.....to 20 odd steps maybe....and teach some customer service manners to the havaldars who stare at you insolently and demand your boarding pass as though you're an offender of some sort.....as long as they don't approach the TSA for expertise on that aspect  Big grin

I have never questioned the need for security. The more the better ? My last flight out of Delhi, I was stopped on the airbridge three times by Delhi police officers all of in-sight of each other.
Barely ten feet apart. The need for security ? Yes. But this was just plain silly.

A tip: Wear a suit and tie, no facial hair and use Brylcreem. I guarantee no stops and maybe even a big hug before you board.

Ah yes, i remember you mentioning that in a thread a few months ago, or was it a trip report?

I agree with you too, some seem unnecessary, but i feel that if only the people were trained better in handling passengers, ie. being more polite ,etc, it would work much more smoothly.

exactly. The domestic terminal in DEL never had aerobridges and the intl. terminal only has 9.

www.newdelhiairport.in

try this website, it has a few pictures from the renovated terminal 2 (intl. terminal) and has a video about the progress made so far on the integrated terminal 3 which will be ready sometime next year.

Very Impressive and thanks for posting. It reminds me of the Mirabel Airport in Canada which
I worked at in the early 90s.

Hope one day to actually be in New Delhi and in this terminal...

Anyone has any updates on Chandigarh/Mohali airport?

From what I read a few months ago, it was going to be ready by June 2009.

I am also wondering as to which international carriers will be interested in flying into the area.

Thanks

Not being managed by AAI is a good prerequisite in India for good management... Smile Private-public ventures like COK, BLR and HYD are good proofs of that, but of course it comes at a cost for passengers..

The toilets seem to be the most neglected.also Pax toilets should be seperate from Staff toilets,this will ensure better upkeep.

I have noticed at COK that the toilets were showing signs of wear and tear, but they were kept clean to use. I haven't passed through BOM since 4 years and I don't how it has changed with the new management. Earlier it was not a great sight to see the toilets after landing in BOM.
