Delhi airport will no longer offer special immigration facilities to premium flyers

Starting Wednesday, international flyers can expect a bit of chaos at Delhi airport. The Bureau of Immigration has done away with separate immigration counters for business and first-class passengers.

The reason? The bureau believes there is no need for a facility like this when there were long queues at the counters for those flying economy. The upside is that there will be more counters available to all passengers, hopefully making the queues shorter. The flipside is that premium class passengers will have to queue up too.
Special counters will be available only to diplomats, top officials and crew members. According to The Times Of India, this move may be extended to other airports as well.
