The last post asking this question is from 2006.
What is the nearest metro station to the Int. Airport?
Is it still 5km away?

Hello John and welcome to indiamike.com

Sorry, I can't answer your question, but just some fiendly advice.

Give more info and you'll get great replies.

What time does your flight arrive?

Why do you want the metro?

If it's to get to a hotel, where is the hotel?

Is it to get to a train station? What train station? What train are you catching? (train number & departure time)

If you are arriving at 00:30 hrs, no metro would be plying by that time. The timings for metro are 6 in the morning till 10:30 pm or 11 pm at night.

If you want to go to Old Delhi Train Station, the only option at that time when you arrive is to either hire a taxi or an auto rickshaw from the airport itself.

Auto should not cost you more than between RS. 150 - 200 & the Taxi should not cost you more than between Rs. 400 - 500 respectively.

Thanks

The reason I mentioned the train is that some trains also call at Delhi Cant station (closer to airport), but you're likely catching a morning train, so going to Old Delhi station will be your best option.

Make sure you get a 'pre-pay' taxi or auto.

Metro Stn nearest to Delhi Domestic Airport

Hello!

The last posting on this thread is quite old (2008). I'm not sure whether the thread is still active or not. However, let me post my question and try my luck!!!

I'm arriving Delhi Domestic Airport at 9.30 AM and should be out of the Airport by 10-10.30 AM. My questions are : (1) Which is the nearest Metro Station nearest to Airport? (2) What mode of transport do I need to reach the Metro or can I just walk down? (3) Can I avail Metro to reach (a) Old Delhi Rly Stn and/or (b) Anand Vihar ISBT?

Thanks in advance for replying.

At this point of time, you'd be more comfortable taking a cab since the Airport Metro rail link hasnt commenced operations. The Airport metro rail link, once operational will connect you to New Delhi Railway station, from there its a single train change to Old Delhi / Chandni Chowk Metro station. OR its a two train change (via Rajiv Chowk and onwards to Anand Vihar ISBT) to Anand Vihar ISBT.

Still, if you prefer the metro for the budgetary aspect, the best and only option would be to take a bus / auto to Dwarka - then take the train to Yamuna Bank OR Rajiv Chowk and take another train to Anand Vihar ISBT. It will be a long ride though.
Similarly, you'll board from dwarka and get to Rajiv Chowk, then change lines to reach chandni chowk / Old Delhi.

Check the DMRC website for exact information

Hope this helps.

If you do not get a local person to answer you:
I did not travel from domestic. If there is no buss from the domestic I'd take a cub or a rickshaw to a buss stop that will take you to metro. I experienced buss connections to be reliable.
