Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel on Thursday admitted teething problems at the newly built international terminal at the Delhi Airport relating to congestion at peak hours and said that services are being improved continuously.
Replying to a supplementary in the Lok Sabha during Question Hour, Patel said the number of passengers and flight operations have increased significantly and that is causing some congestion at peak hours.
He, however, dismissed allegations that basic facilities like drinking water for passengers were lacking.
"The Delhi airport has completed all the 33 Mandatory Capital Projects as envisaged in the provisions of Operation, Management and Development Agreement (OMDA). Phase-I of the development work has been completed and new terminal (T3) has been operationalised with additional capacity of 34 million passengers annually," the Minister said.
