Indira Gandhi International ( IGI ) airport became the 12th busiest airport worldwide for the month of November 2016 as per the latest report released by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

This was the first time an Indian airport entered the big league of top 15 airports in the world. Delhi airport also recorded the highest growth rate of 19.1% in November 2016 globally, the report said.

Delhi International Airport Pvt. Limited (DIAL) officials said this is yet another major achievement for the IGI airport after it crossed the 50 million passenger mark during the same period in November.

We are growing as one of the world’s busiest and largest airports at a rapid pace. This means that the infrastructure and services are being constantly enhanced to match this continuous growth, which will benefit passengers,” Rao added. Read More…
