Soon, the Delhi Metro Magenta line will directly serve Terminal 1 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport. A 370-metre long subway will connect the arrival and departure of the domestic terminal with gate number three of the metro station.
Constructed using state-of-the-art technology, the subway will feature lifts and special travelators to enhance the commuter’s experience in addition to providing easy transfer facilities.
Business Traveller India spoke to Anuj Dayal, Executive Director, Corporate Communication, Delhi Metro on this development. He said, “About 60 per cent work of this subway has been completed and it is expected to be ready by the months of June-July later this year. The lifts will be more spacious than the general lifts and will have a capacity of carrying 26 people.”
Commuters travelling to and fro from the terminal will be able to directly access the metro station using two entry/exit points — one each at the arrival and departure of the airport terminal. Each entry/exit will also have two escalators and two lifts along with a staircase.
