If you are planning to travel from Delhi Airport in the near future, you should be aware of the advisory issued by the Indian low-cost carrier, IndiGo. The advisory was issued due to the congestion at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGAI), which has resulted in long queues and significant delays in the check-in process.
It is worth noting that the IGAI has seen a high volume of travellers recently, and IndiGo has issued an advisory suggesting that passengers arrive at the airport at least 3.5 hours before their departure time. The advisory also recommends that travellers only carry one piece of hand baggage.
Additionally, if you are travelling with IndiGo, it is advisable to use Gates 5 and 6 at terminal 3 of the airport as they are the closest to IndiGo’s check-in counters. This can help you save time and avoid potential delays. It is always a good idea to follow the advice of the airline and the airport authorities to ensure a smooth and stress-free travel experience.
