Delhi Airport’s recently constructed terminal at T1 is now operational

The new T1 arrival terminal spans an area of 8000 sq m and is said to be equipped with four new baggage reclaim carousels

Delhi International Airport Ltd operates the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA). Delhi International Airport (DIAL) has three terminals: T1, T2, and T3. Among these, Terminal 1 is used as a domestic terminal and is used to serve only low-cost carriers.

As a new terminal has been constructed now, the arrival operations of T1 will be shifted completely to the new one from the earlier existing facility. The new T1 arrival terminal spans an area of 8000 sq m and is said to be equipped with four new baggage reclaim carousels.

The new terminal has been developed by DIAL, stated DIAL CEO Videh Kumar Jaipuriar. According to him, it was developed in line with its commitment to enhancing the passenger experience. The motive was to provide safe, secure, and sustainable infrastructural facilities to the passengers.

He also mentioned that post completion of the expansion works, while departure operations will continue from the existing terminal, they will be integrated with the new arrivals terminal in due course.

According to the reports, DIAL’s green initiatives have been followed by the terminal. Keeping globally renowned LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building standards in mind, it has been built as a green building. A daylight concept is also incorporated into the overall structure.

Going forward, 40 million passengers per annum will be handled by the new arrival building located closer to T1 (D).
