Delhi International Airport reports long queues at Immigration counter, HUGE rush of incoming passengers

Delhi Airport is seeing long lines of immigration clearance as the long lines at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport result from the abrupt opening of international borders with several nations, including Malaysia, Thailand, Bhutan, and Vietnam (IGIA). The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have one of the greatest impacts on the tourism industry, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. The governments of the different nations have taken steps to ease business and economic conditions. After a lapse of nearly two years, a number of nations, including Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Bhutan, and the Middle East's United Arab Emirates, have reopened their borders to travellers.

"The passengers from Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia, especially tourists, are the most travelling at the moment. Many airline companies have announced their discounted airfares these days," an airport official told ANI.

The rush hour for international travellers witnessed huge crowds on Tuesday midnight, with arriving passengers waiting in long queues to clear their immigration at the Delhi airport. "There was a huge crowd at the Delhi airport on Monday night where people queued up for more than half an hour for immigration clearance," a UK passenger told ANI.

Recently, several airline companies have announced discounted airfares to attract tourists after a long gap of a year. In a recent announcement, Vietnamese-based airline VietJet inaugurated two new routes between Ahmedabad and Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, after easing Covid regulations and opening borders.
