The Airports Authority of India (AAI) and Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), the operator of the Indira Gandhi International Airport in the national capital, are locked in a tussle over the development of a proposed air train. This train is designed to connect the airport’s three terminals, its cargo hub, and Aerocity, a zone hosting numerous hotels and office complexes. Two key issues dominate the debate: the project’s financing and the number of stops the air train should have. These decisions are critical not just for the project’s success but also in the broader context of enhancing India’s status as a travel hub and reaping economic benefits from a well-functioning international airport.
