Dehli Metro Airport Express Line to NDLS

I heard that there's a Metro airport express line being built that goes to New Delhi railway station and suppose to finish this Sept or Oct 2010 in time for the Delhi Commonwealth Games 2010. Any idea?

Thank you

It's under trial runs and is expected to be open before Commonwealth Games start.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Yogi,

Thanks for your reply.

If it works well on time when I get there, Would this be a good idea to go to NDLS vs. taking a taxi?

Yes, it will be of great help to people.Not sure of the date yet. Delhi metro is really people friendly project.

Some one was telling it will cost 100 rupees per person for the journey from New Delhi station to airport ????

Yes ! Deepakji you are right.

This is a purpose built dedicated line for Airport, hence higher charges.

The separate Gurgaon line is already functional.

Yogi ji , Rs.100/- for people travelling by air is quite afffordable. They pay much more when travelling by Taxi.

Yes ! A taxi at normal rates also costs Rs. 400. But the fare for airport metro has not been made public as of now, in fact it is expected that it will be Rs. 150.

This stretch is being built and operated by a JV of Reliance ADAG and a Spanish Company and not by Delhi Metro Rail Corp (DMRC). The Gurgaon line of DMRC is already operational.

'The Delhi Metro's Airport Express Line is scheduled to kick off services for airport-bound passengers between September 26 and 29.'

Quoted from hindustantimes.com/From-Sep-26-take-a-Metro-…

For air travellers heading to IGI, airline and baggage check-in counters are being provided at the NDRS, Shivaji Terminus and Dhaula Kuan Metro stations. The fare has been kept at a maximum of Rs 150 till IGI airport and an additional Rs 30 to Dwarka, with a provision for monthly passes for airline staff and frequent fliers.

Yes ! The Airport Metro is in trial runs and is expected to be open for public by this month end. And as I said earlier also, the fare has not been announced till now. It's in the realm of speculations only. But as I said it's expected to be Rs. 150/- for CP.

And Deepakji, I have also heard that the coaches have been specially designed to have enough spce for luggage. They are claiming to have better technology and better coaches than DMRC Metro.

It's going to be a boon for travellers. Faster and Cheaper than a taxi.
