A spacious new domestic terminal by 2008 - including a large arrivals hall as well. To be designed by Hafeez Contractor, this terminal (to be named 1B) will ease the pain of catching that rush hour flight. And yes, the old 1B will be consigned to the dustbin of history.
A 4.4 kilometer long runway - one of Asia's longest. This too would be ready by 2008 and be capable to handle the A380 (that in reality depends on Airbus' ability to actually sell them). This runway would be parallel to the existing 10-28 runway and equipped with CAT IIIB ILS (hopefully, some more pilots would be able to make use of it by then). So look out of your window in 2008, you may see a 747 gliding down right next to you and yes.... no more hovering in circles !
A spanking new Terminal 3 by 2010 - This will be an integrated terminal for both domestic and international flyers. The low cost carriers stay in T1B while the rest move here. Capable of handling more than 27 million people a year, this terminal would rival the very best airports in the world. 74 aerobridges, 130 check in counters, automated passenger movers, hotels, restaurants, malls and parking for 4300 cars !! And if the government agrees... even a high speed Metro to CP!! And here are some pics of what the 'NEW' Delhi Airport would look like
*** Footnote : This post may appear like a unabashed self promotion (after all I work at the airport), but guys remember, that I suffer equally when I have to hover in the air for 40 minutes before my flight lands, so I am looking forward to this as much as you are... ***
