Passengers can travel on auto-rickshaws up to a point near the new Terminal-3 (T3) of the Indira Gandhi International airport in New Delhi, airport officials said on Tuesday.
“As auto-rickshaws are used in the capital, we have advised the Delhi police and other agencies to allow auto-rickshaws till Centaur hotel from where we will provide complimentary shuttle service to T3,” Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) official said.
The swanky new terminal will commence full-scale International operations from Wednesday with the first flight of Air-India arriving from New York at 1645 hrs.
“T3 has a good approach road with eight lanes. There will also be people on the ground to guide the passengers towards T3, plus all the road signs and hoardings are also in place,” the official added.
The sixth largest passenger terminal in the world also has the largest multi-level car parking facility in the country which can accommodate 4,300 cars.
Delhi metro is also constructing a high-speed dedicated airport line which would connect the city centre to T3 as well as allow for check-in facilities at the metro stations itself.
Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) has also planned a Wi-Fi Internet-enabled Volvo bus service to T3 from 17 locations in the national capital.
