NEW DELHI: Following six-month haul, the Delhi Airport Metro Express will start its operations from tomorrow. However, the trains will run at a much reduced speed of 50 km per hour, which was running at 105 km per hour, earlier.
Commercial operations of the 23-km corridor, connecting Connaught Place with Terminal-3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport will commence at 5.30 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
It has been highlighted that check-in and baggage facilities for both international and domestic passengers will not be available for the time-being.
The Reliance Infrastructure-run train that had 18-20 minute journey from Connaught Place to the Terminal 3 of IGI Airport will now take at least 30 to 35 minutes, effectively failing the purpose of a high-speed corridor.
