Delhi airport gets new rapid exit taxiways

New Delhi: Two new rapid exit taxiways were opened on Monday at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport alongwith the final portion of a parallel taxiway for the secondary runway.
In addition, a new link taxiway was opened between the primary and secondary runways. As a result, the ground movement of aircraft will have greater flexibility and the aircraft will be able to take off without much wait and be able to exit the runway faster clearing the way for the flight behind it.
This will reduce waiting times for passengers, said officials at the GMR-DIAL (Delhi International Airport Private Limited).
In addition, rapid exit taxiway D1 and a portion of parallel taxiway E2 was commissioned recently alongwith the opening up of a second runway for three hours each in the morning and the afternoon. The work in progress will aim at making the runways capable of 24 hours of simultaneous operation, said the official.
