International Airport of Delhi, popularly known as Indira Gandhi International Airport, is located 24 kilometers south of New Delhi. It is a two-terminal airport with major Airlines from across the world having flights to and from Indira Gandhi International Airport. Out of the two terminals, one is the Domestic Terminal some 3 kilometers away from the International Terminal.
There is a free bus service at every 30 minutes from one terminal to another. Both the terminals are equipped with modern facilities like seating room, resting room, banks, bureaux de change, restaurants, cafes, Internet facility and duty free shopping area. However, you should be prepared to face some hassles at the airport before you board the flight. You will find ATMs at Terminal 1A (Domestic) and the visitors arrival area of International Terminal. There is a bus service by the Airports Authority with buses leaving for Central Delhi all through the day and night.
Apart from the luxury and hospitality at the Delhi Airport, there are some snags that are common considering flight schedules and security concerns. You may have to stand in queues for security checks. Custom officers are generally very polite except a few who can be rude at times.
Cabs and taxis are available for hire on arrival to the Delhi Airport. Car rental option is available at the airport if you want to avoid the hassles of taxis. Self driven cars are not advisable due to the condition of traffic in the city. Major car rental service agencies like Avis and Hertz operate from the airport. Parking facilities within the annexes of both the terminals are sufficient to accommodate cars and vehicles arriving at the airport.
If you prefer a taxi then it is better to go for the pre-paid taxi service at the airport. This would ensure that you are charged with genuine fare and taxi operators can't ask you for extra money.
