First time I am transiting through DEL, so I need some advise from the experts.
I am arriving on an international flight to DEL at 8:30pm and have a connecting flight next morning at 6:50am on Jet. I have a few questions:
1) The last Jet flight to BOM leaves at 10:30pm. Is there a chance I can make that flight, ie, is 2 hours enough to clear customs, immigration, travel to domestic airport and change my tickets to the night flight ? The airline will not book me in the late night flight since according to their manuals DEL airport takes 150 mins to transit from intl to domestic airport. Fyi, I am traveling business class.
2) How do I travel between international and domestic airports ? Is it walking distance, or, do I take a bus ? Is the bus running on internal airport roads like the bus in BOM, or, does it actually go out into the city ?
3) Once I clear immigration/customs, is there a Jet counter that I can give my bags to for onward journey to BOM, or, do I have to keep my suitcases with me in the lounge or hotel ?
4) If I wind up doing the ~11 hour layover, is the business lounge good enough or should I get a hotel ? If we get a hotel, I would like to get a 4 star or better and something that is close to the airport. Any suggestions ? I checked Radisson, but that seems far from the airport and it appears like they do not offer shuttle service.
Thanks for your help and advise.
