Waiting At Delhi Airport

I was on my way back from Delhi to Bangalore, and had a chance to go through the new terminus at Delhi's domestic airport. The swanky terminal looks impressive to begin with, but it did not seem as good as the first impression made me believe.


The biggest complaint I had was about lack of space near the gates. 16 gates are tightly squeezed next to a narrow passage that offers very little space for departing passengers. During peak hour departures, it will be crowded with people, barely leaving any free space. There are just a handful of chairs that can seat only a small 5% of the people who wait to board.


There are other problems too. The passenger lounge can barely accommodate everyone in the hall. This too would be short of space in the years to come as the traffic grows.


Having spent thousands of crores on a new terminal, it baffles me why the architects have not addressed something so basic. I sincerely hope this is a temporary arrangement before the construction work is complete. But if this is how it is meant to be for a long time, it won't just be an annoyance, but a problem in scaling the airport further.

Friend, there's more to this...Besides this, a news that the airport is not fire proof is doing rounds of the city. Apparently, the Delhi Fire Service has declared the brand new departure terminal 1D to be unsafe. I'm just hoping, it's not true.
