India's first General Aviation Terminal for private jets opens at Delhi Airport

Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport has opened India’s first ever exclusive private jet terminal for India’s growing ultra-rich population.

Over the past five years, India’s uber-rich have grown by leaps and bounds - 116%, to be exact - and a long standing demand has been to cater to their private jets, which now seems to be slowly manifesting itself.

In the midst of a pandemic, the addition of an exclusive terminal does mean increased safety - for private jet owners and for public - and in an emergency, business jets can function as air ambulances.

Having a separate terminal for private jets could also increase foreign interest in India, even as Prime Minister Modi increasingly lures foreign businessmen to India, who will no doubt fly over in their own planes, now.

As of now, the Delhi Airport will allow 150 flights through the day at the new terminal - which is capable of handling 50 passengers an hour. (Representative Image)
