Peak season:

Cheap flights to Delhi can be hard to find between October and March. These months are generally the busiest due to both the climate and the different events which take place. November sees the Kite Festival at Jubilee Park and is a great display of Delhi’s culture and heritage. If you’re a professional kite flyer you could potentially also participate in the event. There are also kite-making competitions, so children will enjoy more than the explosions of colour that take over the sky. January sees a day of celebration and appreciation of the military and, as such, huge crowds all swamp the city to offer their thanks to soldiers. There are military parades as well as different processions and aerobatics. Both these events will make cheap flights to Delhi almost impossible to find so you’ll need to secure your flight tickets as early as you can to avoid paying through your teeth.

Off season

April sees temperatures start to rise from the low-twenties to the mid-thirties. This continues until early September and you’ll find the cheapest flights to Delhi from April to September. If you’re not a fan of the heat, you’ll definitely want to avoid these summery months where temperatures casually hover in the 40’s and can be very unbearable for even seasoned travellers.

When is the best time to book a flight to New Delhi?

The best time to book flights to Delhi will vary on your preference. If you’re looking for the cheapest flights to Delhi then aim to secure your flight tickets three months in advance of the summer. That means if you want to visit in April, make sure your flights are booked by January at the latest. Giving yourself a 3 month window will benefit you regardless of when you are planning to visit, although April does average as the cheapest month. Flexibility is your best friend when trying to find the cheapest flights to Delhi so if you have the luxury of time and no preference on when you’ll visit, secure your flight tickets now for whenever the cheapest ticket price is.

Tuesday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to New Delhi. Flying on Friday will result in higher flight prices.

Which airlines operate flights to Delhi?

There are many different airlines all providing cheap flights to Delhi however the major ones are Virgin, British Airways, Etihad, Air India and Jet Airways. The price of flight tickets will vary among them all so it’s best to compare a couple against different dates to see who will provide the best value for money. British Airways, for example, have a free executive club membership where you can earn points for flying with them. You can then redeem the points off other flight tickets to make a saving. Virgin and Etihad, on the other hand, have very high levels of comfort and a great range of in-flight entertainment.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

The Indira Gandhi International airport is just 16km from the centre of Delhi and transport is readily available to help you with the transition. The best thing to do is once you have booked your flights to Delhi and you’re comparing different hotel options is to see if any of them offer a transfer service. You’ll more than likely need to pay for it but it’ll save you worrying about how you’ll get to the centre. Failing that you can opt for the train. The Delhi Metro line connects the airport to the city and runs from Terminal 3 for the best part of all day (it finishes at 11pm and resumes again at 5am). A ticket will set you back about £1. Delhi Transport Corporation buses are another option you can consider. They run at half hour intervals and can be found outside of Terminal 3. The last option you can look at is a taxi, however there are many tales of scams that happen, so if you decide for a taxi you’ll want a prepaid one as opposed to one of the unofficial ones you can find outside.

New Delhi airport overview

Indira Gandhi International Airport is just 10 miles (16km) outside of New Delhi. The airport opened the dazzling new Terminal 3, which handles all international flights, in 2010, but there are also a number of other terminals still in use at the airport. Passengers who used the airport prior to the opening of Terminal 3 might remember a dank and dirty affair with little to offer travellers, but all this changed when the airport was privatised and revamped.

New Delhi’s airport is well connected to cities across the world and serviced by a large number of international and national carriers. There are also quite a few low-cost carriers in residence and it’s a hub for ten Indian carriers including Jet Airways, Kingfisher and Air India.

Indira Gandhi International Airport is a natural gateway to northern India. As one of the largest and busiest airports on the Indian subcontinent, it’s a great introduction to a country full of delights, adventures and surprises.

Airport staff are friendly and always willing to assist passengers or dispense the best bargain-hunting advice for the markets of New Delhi. It has loads of facilities and shopping opportunities, and its clean interior offers an ordered, calm introduction or conclusion to a trip to New Delhi. However, if you do have to spend a lot of time at the airport, make sure you spend it in the modern Terminal 3.
