Delhi airport's T3 terminal to have hard flooring after flyer tweets on 'dirty, inconvenient' rug

New Delhi: Lugging your trolleys and wheeled bags across IGI Airport's Terminal 3 will no longer require a Herculean effort.

The Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) will soon start removing the gigantic mustard yellow carpet spanning T3 which many of the flyers have disliked since the terminal opened eight years back. The reason: Pulling bags on it is difficult with wheels getting stuck in the rug that extends from beyond the retail area to aerobridges in both the domestic and international piers of T3. Come winter and this stretch will sport a hard flooring.

DIAL's decision came on Thursday after a passenger, Suyash Gupta, tweeted on August 18, tagging junior minister of civil aviation Jayant Sinha: "Most good, busy airports use hard flooring... Easy for passengers, easy for luggage, easy to clean and maintain. Almost all (T3) passengers want the dirty rugs to go. "
