Maybe you could share more details with us? When did you buy your ticket, which airline, how much did you have to pay at the check in counter and what mode of payments did they accept, did this cause any delays etc.?

My friend travelled a couple of weeks ago. And I talked to him before the flight.. and this was what he was told by the airline on the phone. That he would have to pay Rs. 2xx at the time of checkin as UDF for Delhi Airport.

I think Mirjam2 is correct. After June '11 all schedule airlines should have added the extra UDF into their farebasis x-DEL. What airlines are we talking about ?

Hello fellow IMers,

This may have been answered already but I didn't have any luck when I searched for it.
I am arriving at IGI from NY via Air Indian on the 12th around 3pm IST. I have a Kingfisher flight at 6pm. I noticed that both AI and Kingfisher fly out of T3 in Delhi. The question I have is: Do I need to exit the terminal after collecting my baggage and go to the domestic departures from "outside" the terminal (meaning, via shuttle bus) or is there a way to pass through to the domestic departures portion of the terminal after I collect my bags and clear customs?
This wasn't abundantly clear on the Delhi airport website.

Thanks for all the input.

Same building. T3. You do not have to leave the terminal. Clear customs and hand the baggage to Kingfisher at the gate check.

nycank,

Thanks for your reply. Just to clarify, you mean to say that once we clear immigration, claim our bags and go through customs, there's a walkway leading to domestic departures? I don't recall seeing any way to simply 'walk' to the domestic portion when I was there back in July. Unless, I completely missed it. I did confirm that both AI and Kingfisher are in T3, so it does make sense but it can't be that easy. It is India, after all

Honestly, DEL International is an O&D airport for me (i.e no connecting flights)

I returned from a 2 week India trip just 3 weeks ago and I have to say, I was STUNNED by the New Delhi airport.

THE AIRPORT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND WELL LAID OUT !!!

The lines for Immigration are short since they have numerous counters !! Currency exchange is also very easy ; the carousel to get your luggage is right there after you come out of immigration.
On the return trip also, there were absolutely no issues...it's streamlined all along until you get to the gate. They do stamp your boarding pass, luggage tags etc..however, it's all systematic and well thought through.

Comparatively speaking, our connecting flight(s) through Paris CDG ... kinda sucked...CDG is pretty awful and you have to change terminals by a lousy shuttle bus and the lines are long and cluttered.

I thought the airport apart from the shops and restaurants was an overgrown aircraft hanger. Everything is miles apart. Very boring place I expected more after reading all the hype about it on here.

I can explain the procedure for domestic transfers at IGIA.
One you deplane, the airport shuttle bus leaves you at a gate meant for DOMESTIC TRANSFERS.
You walk down the signs and go up one level, where your hand baggage is checked, you are frisked and the boarding pass checked ( you have this already if you did a through check in ).
The departure gate is there on the boarding pass - just check with the on screen displays, and proceed for check in.
Very smooth and hassle free process.

David and I are arriving by train to Old Delhi station at 2200 on monday and departing at 0900 from Delhi airport, domestic flight to Kochi, on tuesday morning. What options are there to stay at the airport and will they let us in if we get there at 2300? Does anyone have any experience of this please?
Many thanks
Louise

We have a domestic flight into Delhi airport that arrives around 10 AM, and an international flight leaving around 4 PM. I gather there's enough time for us to have a proper lunch. Is it worth it leaving the airport to a nearby hotel for a good final Indian meal? If so can anyone suggest a good restaurant?
