Airport Express Line - Delhi

Are you still languishing in traffic and obsessing that horn button of yours while losing your temper
at that silly call center driver? Or has missing your flight become commonplace? Delhi walas do not fear. The Delhi Metro or should I say DAMEPL (Delhi Metro Express Pvt. Limited) has recently unveiled the spanking new Airport Express Line. But the question that remains is if it is the first class experience it claims to be or is it a white elephant? Read on to know more.

How it started

The Tendering process for this project started in September 2007 after which on Jan 23, 2008, Reliance Infrastructure and the CAF consortium was awarded a 30 year contract. Although originally this project was scheduled to complete around India's Commonwealth Games, teething troubles in shifting Airport operations to the new terminal T3 delayed the opening of the Airport Express line to February 23 2011.

Features of the Delhi Metro Airport Express Line

The Airport Express Line has been designed with a high measure of comfort and high speed safety. Also since the Spanish firm CAF has also designed similar airport express lines in Hong Kong and London, travelers from those regions might have a sense of Dj vu. It's nice to see that DAMEPL hasn't stinted on features and has included amenities like lifts, escalators, baggage trolleys, porter services, wheelchair and lots more. Also the passenger cabins boast of adequate space for your bulky suitcases and also have a dedicated baggage compartment should you need more baggage space.

Passenger Coaches of the Airport Express - A class apart

After stepping into one of the spanking new Airport Line coaches, you feel transported into a foreign country as you leave behind Delhi's heat, smoke, dust and noise. Decked with fancy LCD screens which give information on your flights, comfortable seating arrangements, ample luggage space and air-conditioned coaches zipping @105 km/h make it apparently clear that this isn't your normal commuter's metro. All in all it's like luxury high speed travel at the fraction of the price.

Coach Technology

The rolling stock (fancy name for trains) for the Delhi Metro Airport Express line boasts of some innovative and high technology engineering. Built by Spanish experts CAF with a special emphasis on making the coaches silent, everything from flooring, insulated walls and windows have been engineered so that they are as silent as possible. Even the wheels have added lubrication to make the trains silent and comfortable. Also the trains are built so that they can be operated without a driver. This driverless technology (also known as ATO, Automated Train Operation) allows the train to be operated without a driver and allows the train to accelerate, brake, adjust speed or stop on its own. We don't know about you, but somehow an automated train in our environment (with all the metro stoppages) doesn't seem a good idea. So as of now, there is a driver as a failsafe or manual override so that he/she can take over in case the situation demands.

Check In @ Airport Express Line Stations

3 stations along the Airport Express line namely the New Delhi Station, Shivaji Stadium and the Dhaula Kuan stations will be offering the check in facility which will enable you to bypass check in hassles at the airport. The flip side with this feature is that most of the airlines have yet to set up check in counters and that Baggage check ins are only available in the New Delhi and Shivaji Stadium station. So ultimately at least for now, you will be stuck at using the Airport for check ins. However given a few months into operation and as the Airlines negotiate with DAMEPL; the counters should be operational soon. How soon though is anyone's guess.

Ticket Price of the Airport Express

The good news is that ticket prices for now are being discounted. The lowest fare is Rs 20 and the highest fare is Rs 100. After the discount offer expires, the lowest fare will be @Rs20 and highest fare Rs 180. For more details have a look at the airport express line fare chart. Now if only DAMEPL would extend that discount...

Delhi Metro Express Line Timings

The Airport Express Line's first train leaves at 6 am and the last train leaves at 10pm from both the stations at New Delhi railway station and at the Dwarka Station. However there might be further revisions from time to time based on the passenger load on the Airport Express line and other external factors. So the wise thing to do would be to check out the official website for the latest updated timings for the Airport Express.

Additional Services Available

The Airport Express line offers a few cool value added services like taxi services, porter services and trolley services. You get an airport taxi service Delhi car rental at  in case you need one for your further journey. If your bags are too heavy to life, you can get a porter for Rs 50. Baggage trolley services are absolutely free

Washrooms or restroom facility

With the paucity of restrooms in India, it's good to know should you need to take a leak or freshen up, you can do that in comfort in spotlessly clean toilets.

Things the Airport Express line could improve

So by now you must be pretty blown away with Delhi's Airport express line's amazing facilities, high speed trains and spectacular stations. But the question is, are there any flies in the ointment? Unfortunately there are quite a few areas where the Express line can improve leaps and bounds. We have listed things that we noticed needed improvement as follows

Although the connectivity to T3 is spot on with a passenger walkway, connectivity to Terminal 1D (where most low cost airlines are present) is patchy with passengers having to take a taxi or bus from the Airport Metro station. Yes there is a shuttle bus facility to Terminal 1D, however if you are a visitor, you can't use it

If you are using the regular airport and changing over at the New Delhi Station for the Airport Link, you will have to buy another ticket for using the Airport Express line. We think that there should be one ticket that should work for both Delhi Metro and the Airport Express line which would save passengers a whole lot of time along with being convenient

Incomplete stations look like construction wrecks and spoil the Airport Express line experience. But with time this will improve as the stations near construction.

A major downside of the Airport Express Link service is that it's hours of operation are from 8am to 10 pm. Keeping in mind most international passenger arrive in the wee hours of the night or early morning, this service will be absolutely useless to them.

Security is manned by CISF who do become very jumpy in case you choose to photograph the stations and the train. The Delhi Metro Airport Express Line officials maintain that photography is banned along the Airport Express line; however there is no signage which says so anywhere.

Keeping everything in mind the usefulness of the Airport Express Line cannot be disputed. However, it will have significant challenges in terms of how it can handle large ridership volumes, natural disasters and more importantly the threat of terrorism and security. Also it misses out on a significant chunk of international travelers who arrive late night or early morning. Time will tell how successful the Airport Express line will be. For now with people raving about the world class Express line's cost savings, speed and comfort, it seems to be the king of Delhi's public transportation system and the Delhi Metro's crown jewel. for more detail jusr visit us : http://www.taxicar.in/services/airport-taxi-service/

Some Essential Tips for Visiting Delhi

When visiting a New city it is always a good idea to do a thorough research of the place, after all it is
an exercise in survival. Especially for people who cannot speak the language of the city. Not having any information about the place you are in is always used as leverage by people looking to take advantage of you.

Here are a few essential tips for people visiting the city for the first time:

It is of paramount importance that under no condition do you give your original documents or information to anyone apart from government, police or immigration officials.

Always remember to leave all your valuables and important papers, such as jewelery and passports, secured in a safe deposit box of your hotel room. Make sure to never leave these items unattended in your room or carry large sums of cash on the streets by yourself.

It would be a good idea to plan in advance when visiting Delhi, regarding your stay and tourism in Delhi. Try not to take any advice of Taxi Drivers regarding your stay/tour in Delhi. Follow only those instructions given by Police Officers, or any other Government recognized information Centers like Delhi Tourism.

It is advisable to travel in groups when moving around the city at night. If you are traveling alone at night, prefer traveling in a Pre Paid Taxi as it is governed and managed by the Delhi Traffic Police. In a pre paid service, you pay the fare in advance depending on the distance and luggage you have.

Remember to be completely aware of your luggage and other belongings at Airports, railway Stations and Bus Terminals.

The cheapest and the best way to travel in the city is by using the auto rickshaw or the metro. Even though buses hit almost every nook and corner of the city if you are not familiar with the language or the roads traveling by the bus is not a wise option. While traveling or walking about in crowded places, be very careful of pick pockets, and do not keep your wallet or any money in your rear pockets.

Traffic is, by and large, horribly congested and many drivers, be it autos or taxis will think nothing but quoting ten times the usual fare to a tourist. Do some research on the current fares being charged for every public transport, and agree on prices before setting off. At any time if you think that you are being charged unreasonably, get in touch with the nearest traffic policeman immediately.

Tourist Guides: 
Delhi is home to many touts, so be careful of being lured into their elaborate traps. They pose as guides, friendly residents or even government or police officials. One of the more confusing things when in Delhi is trying to arrange your onwards travel, and being confident in what your told is correct. There are countless fake 'Government Approved' Tourist Info places, you need to go to a legitimate Government Approved Tour Operator, do not count on auto or taxi drivers to take you to the correct place, do your research properly.

Never carry more money than you need, try to carry credit cards and minimal cash in your pockets. Carry your wallet in an inside jacket pocket or side trouser pocket, never in the rear pocket. ATM networks of all major banks can be found at numerable locations in Delhi. So, it is better to use plastic money instead of carrying cash all the time. When exchanging money, make sure you only go to registered money exchangers.

Delhi has extreme climate, which means extremely hot during the summers, while very cold in the winters. Try to visit Delhi during the period of Feb-March and Sept-Nov. At this time, the weather of Delhi is at its best. If you come in any other month, you will be facing either extremely hot or extremely cold weather.

If at anytime you face any harassment or law and order problem in Delhi, you can dial 100 from the nearest telephone for police assistance.
