- How does international transit at New Delhi airport work?
Passengers connecting to international flights at India Gandhi International airport will be met by the ground staff from the airline of their next flight. Arriving passengers should follow signs for Transit/Immigration. Airline officials will be present in the immigration area and will escort transit passengers to a waiting area for their next flight.
It is standard procedure for the airline official to ask for and retain your passport and a copy of your ticket so that they can check your reservation and issue boarding passes if necessary. Check-in counters typically open four hours before departure . If check-in has commenced for your next flight, the airline will process and return your documents pretty quickly. If you have a longer transit and check-in has not started for your next flight, the airline might retain your travel documents till the check-in counters, which are not accessible to transit passengers in the waiting area, have opened.
Passengers staying in the airport who have checked their baggage to their final destination do not need to collect their baggage. However, passengers may sometimes be asked to identify their baggage. Passengers with over-night transit who wish to stay in a hotel will need to clear immigration and customs and collect their baggage. Passengers changing airlines in Delhi may need to re-check baggage if the airlines do not have an interline agreement in place between them. Please check with us for more information.
The waiting area in Terminal 2 where international flights arrive and depart has a restaurant, duty free shops, internet café and a snack bar. A state-of-the-art Terminal 3 is expected to come into service in the later part of 2010.
