Flyers Can Check-In From Two Delhi Metro Stations


New Delhi: Starting July 1, Air India and Jet Airways passengers commuting to IGI Airport will have the option to check-in at Delhi Metro’s Shivaji Stadium and New Delhi stations, a move aimed at further popularising the premier line connecting the city to the airport.

At present, only Air India passengers can avail the check-in facility at the New Delhi station of the high-speed corridor, also known as Airport Express (Orange Line).

The upcoming facility will be available to passengers of the two airlines, flying both on domestic as well as international routes. The check-in counters at the stations will close two hours before scheduled departure of a flight.

“The airport passengers can obtain their boarding pass at the check-in counter and check-in the luggage as well. The checked-in baggage will be transferred to IGI Airport’s Terminal-3 through a secured Baggage Handling System (BHS),” DMRC said in a statement.

In a bid to increase ridership on the 23-km-long corridor, DMRC has taken a number of steps including slashing fares by up to 50 per cent and raising train frequency to 10 minutes between 8 AM and 8 PM everyday.

The average daily ridership of the airport line stands around 36,000.
