Fly fast with taxiways

New Delhi: There's hope for passengers fed up of waiting for over an hour before getting to land at the IGI Airport.
Although simultaneous use of runways was started in April, a network of incomplete exitways and taxiways meant that a changed wind direction — which made planes land from Dwarka side and not Jumbo Point — would see only one runway being used at a time.
After a delay of some months, this network of taxiways is now expected to be ready in a fortnight. Delhi International Airport (Pvt) Ltd (DIAL) said it opened a rapid exit way and part of a new parallel taxiway for aircraft operations on Thursday.
These two links are part of the network required to make simultaneous use of runways possible at all times.
