Footfall up at Delhi airport

New Delhi: With the capital and other parts of NCR opening up, footfall has once again increased at the Delhi airport, which handled around 41,000 passengers on Monday. During the lockdown, footfall had dropped to around 20,000 passengers per day. Similarly, the frequency of trains is also increasing with a number of trains, which had been temporarily suspended due to low occupancy, being restored.

A source at the airport said: “People are travelling once again to perhaps go back to their places of work. Some may even be travelling for business. Passenger footfall is currently around 40,000, which can be handled by Terminal-3 alone.” At one point earlier in the year, daily passenger footfall was over 1.1 lakh passengers .

An airport official said around 500 flight movements per day were taking place of late. Prior to the pandemic, the airport operated over 1,400 flight each day.
