With just nine months left for the completion of the new terminal, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) invited delegates of Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA) to inspect ongoing construction at the Delhi airport.
“After our two-day inspection, we are happy with the progress DIAL has made,” said Chen Guoxing, commander of BCIA, who led the team for construction of the Beijing airport for the 2008 Olympics.
“The challenge DIAL faces is similar to the problems we faced before the Olympics, which is of massive construction in a short time. However, after inspection of the designs of baggage handling and IT systems, we do not find anything lacking.
The system acquired by DIAL is passenger friendly. Moreover, we find the techniques they have used to be more scientific than the one we used,” Guoxing said on Tuesday.
