Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) is the only commercial airport in New Delhi and the busiest airport in India. The airport offers non-stop flights to destinations across India and elsewhere in Asia, as well as Africa, Europe and North America. Air India, Air India Regional, GoAir, IndiGo, Jagson Airlines, Jet Airways, JetKonnect and SpiceJet each use the airport as a hub.
Several budget airlines fly from New Delhi. These include GoAir, IndiGo and SpiceJet. Among the destinations they serve: Bangalore, Chennai, Goa, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune. But you don’t necessarily have to fly a low-cost carrier to find cheap airfares. When searching for inexpensive flights, keep several things in mind. First, the earlier you buy your ticket, the less you’re likely to pay. Second, flexible travel dates will make it easier to nap cheap fares. Finally, sometimes the lowest priced ticket will involve a connecting flight.
