Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) chief executive officer (CEO) Videh Kumar Jaipuriar has said with more international airlines wanting to connected with India, the airport is aiming to increase its  international passenger handling capacity by 40% to 50%.

“We are running out of international capacity. We are looking at various ways to increase the capacity, and the plan is to increase it by 40% to 50% in six months to one year. We have consultants working to get the best solution in terms of operational as well as passenger convenience and also the airside infrastructure matching with that of the terminal infrastructure,” Jaipuriar said at the CAPA India Aviation Summit in Delhi as quoted by Hindustan Times.

There are three terminals in New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport.

“We are hoping that sometime during this month itself, T1 will be operational,” the CEO told the newspaper.

Speaking about international flights from T3, he said: "We have around 20% of transit or connecting passengers whether domestic to international or domestic to domestic, and some of the segments are seeing faster growth."
