India’s First Air Train To Hit Delhi By 2022 At IGI Airport

July 5, 2020

The pandemic may have wreaked havoc, but there is lots in the pipeline to look forward to. One example is India's first air train slated to hit the capital city!

The Air Train, also known as Sky Train at airports around the world, the project is necessary for inter-terminal transfers as the current driving distance between terminals 1 and 3 is 7.5 km. 

Air Train In India

The Delhi airport is likely to get an 'air train' by 2022 for the seamless movement of passengers between terminals. The annual passenger handling capacity is expected to reach a staggering 10 crore by 2022. And so, the need for a quicker means of travel is much needed.

Delhi Air Train is a 5.1 km Automated People Mover (APM) system with 4 stations proposed by the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) to serve Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport’s key terminals, Delhi Aerocity (hotel & business district) and cargo facilities.

 

With the true purpose of convenience and keeping in the mind the airport handling capacity being 10 crores, this Automated Passenger Mover (APM) is coming into action. Indira Gandhi International airport moved up a notch from 16th spot in 2017 to the 12th spot in 2020 for being the busiest airport.  

The Route

 

Line-1: Terminal 3/4 – Terminal 1 (5.1 km)
• Type: Elevated, At-Grade (400m, underneath the elevated taxiway) & Underground (1.2 km, Aerocity Ramp – T1)
• Depot: Aerocity
• Stations: Terminal 3/4 Station, Cargo Station, Aerocity Station and Terminal 1 Station

Bus shuttle services run every 20 minutes but aren’t convenient or pleasant. In addition, the Delhi Airport is currently being redeveloped with a new expanded Terminal 1, elevated taxiway and fourth runway slated to open by 2022. In place of Terminal 2, a new Terminal 4 is planned to be built and opened up in stages by 2028.
