    I need to get my flight to Vancouver from IGI T3 and will be coming from Punjab on the Shatabdi train. This will be the first time I will be coming by train to Delhi airport and need some help with the time between arriving at the railway station to the boarding time at the airport.

    I would like to know how far the New Delhi train station is from IGI airport?

    What would be the best and most convenient way to reach the airport from the railway station?

    IGI T3 is about 15 KM from New Delhi railway station but it can some times take more than an hour to get there due to traffic depending upon the time of the day you travel. If it is after 11PM it would take less than half an hour.

    You can get a taxi from outside the station, there are prepaid options as well as radio taxi. It costs a little more for radio taxi but those are air-conditioned and pre-paid booth taxis are not.

    Welcome to the forum!

    The New Delhi Railway Station is about 15.8 kms away from the Indira Ghandi International Airport. If you drive it, it can take you about 16 minutes to reach airport.

    Since you would need to arrive on time for your departure, the best transportation mode you can take is the taxi. It can cost up to Rs 600 if you take a taxi. The good thing is that it's fast, convenient and reliable. You can even opt for Uber, if you have the app. This way, the taxi driver can pick you up directly from the Railway Station. Otherwise, there are lots of taxis just outside the station as well.

    I hope this helps!

    Best way to get to Delhi airport Terminal 3 from New Delhi railway station would be taking the Metro train which will take you up to Terminal 3 station. Departures are less than two mins walk from the IGI T3 metro station.
