The primary aviation hub for civilains in North India, the Indira Gandhi International Airport is spread over an area of 5,106 acres and is situated in Palam, about 16 km from New Delhi’s city centre.
Deemed as the busiest airport in terms of both passenger and cargo traffic – the IGI airport handled over 57.7 million passengers in the fiscal year 2016-17. With the commencement of operations at Terminal 3 in 2010, it became India's and South Asia's largest aviation hub, with a current capacity of handling more than 40 million passengers. The planned expansion program will increase the airport's capacity to handle 100 million passengers by 2030 – we’re proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder in a venture that’s sure to take India to the world.
In 2010, IGIA was conferred the fourth best airport award in the world, in the 15 - 25 million category.
