Traditionally, majority of international airports are often named after important personality of the country or locality, thus Delhi International airport was named in honor of the great world-known politician and spiritual leader of India - Indira Gandhi. It's quite an old airport, which is subject to regular renovation and expansion. At first, there was only one terminal T1. Later, when airport's capacity was not sufficient the second terminal T2 was built, which was fully responsible for servicing international flights, while T1 was used for domestic flights. However, with the entering of low-cost companies to the market, the passenger traffic highly increased, so it was decided to build the third terminal based on the existing two. Now T3 is the second largest terminal in the world. It is a modern U-shaped terminal with a well-developed infrastructure, numerous boarding bridges and convenient connection with the city. Since the connection is concerned, the airport is linked to Delhi with the help of a 8 line highway, so the city center can be easily reached by taxi (with or without air conditioning), or by bus, but the cheapest and fastest way is by subway. The metro station is located right in the airport, which is very convenient. The Delhi Metro is very clean, fast and surprisingly very cheap. Therefore, if you want to save on transfer to the city, use the metro service.
