Where is Indira Gandhi Airport?  

DEL Indira Gandhi International Airport (IATA: DEL, ICAO: VIDP) is the primary international airport of the National Capital Region of Delhi, India, situated in West Delhi, 16 kilometres (10 miles) southwest of New Delhi city centre. Named after Indira Gandhi, the former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi International Airport is often referred to as IGI, IGI Airport, or IGIA, by locals. Abroad it is often referred to as New Delhi Airport.

With the commencement of operations at the new Terminal 3 in 2010, New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport has become India's and South Asia's largest and busiest aviation hub, with a current capacity of handling more than 46 million passengers. Along with Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM), Delhi Airport handles more than half of the air traffic in South Asia. In 2010-11, DEL Delhi Airport handled 29.94 million passengers annually and the planned expansion program will increase its capacity to handle 100 million passengers annually by 2030. When complete, more than 90% of passengers at Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport will use the new Terminal 3 facility.
