Catching an international flight from the Indira Gandhi International Airport is not a very pleasant experience. The huge winding queues for security and immigration checks means passengers are exhausted even before a long haul flight takes off. As the airport has only nine aerobridges, most of the time passengers have to take a bus to a remote parking bay instead of boarding the plane from the terminal itself.

The Delhi International Airport (P) Ltd. (DIAL) has now started work to tackle these problems, including the acute shortage of aerobridges. The international terminal (Terminal 2) of the IGI airport has nine aerobridges right now but DIAL plans to build 74 aerobridges by 2010, which it claims would be the highest number for any international airport.
