Delhi Airport’s Elevated Taxiways:

The 2.1-kilometre-long Eastern Cross Taxiways are designed to reduce passengers’ tarmac time after landing and before takeoff. Notably, the airport will be the only one in India to feature an elevated taxiway with roads passing beneath it. The ECT connects the northern and southern airfields on the eastern side of the airport, offering a shorter taxiing distance of seven kilometers for aircrafts. It can accommodate wide-body planes such as the A-380, B-777, and B-747.

With the addition of the fourth runway, the airport now boasts four operational runways: RW 09/27, RW 11R/29L, RW 10/28, and RW 11L/29R. These enhancements aim to enhance operational efficiency and facilitate smoother air traffic movement.

Airport Modernization Efforts:

The Indira Gandhi International Airport is operated by the Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), a consortium led by GMR Airports Infrastructure Ltd. The modernization initiatives, including the elevated taxiways and additional runway, are part of ongoing efforts to upgrade and expand the airport’s infrastructure to meet the growing demands of air travel in the region.
