The Delhi and Bangalore airports are two of the busiest air transport hubs in India. Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi has a annual passengers handling capacity of about 40 million, with an expansion aimed at making it capable of handling about 100 million passengers. The Bangalore airport has a capacity to handle approximately 15 million passengers in a year. These airports not only serve the population of their respective cities, but also that of significant tourist and business destinations nearby. More than 40 daily Delhi to Bangalore flights or more than 260 weekly flights transport people from the national capital to the IT hub of India.
Details of Delhi to Bangalore Air Services
Almost all of this traffic comprises direct New Delhi to Bangalore flights, which take about 2 hours 30 minutes to cover a flight distance of around 1745 km. All domestic airlines, including low-cost and full-service carriers operate on this route.
The earliest flight of the day is operated by SpiceJet
that leaves New Delhi at 12:05 am whereas the latest one, of IndiGo
, departs at about 10:15 pm. Jet Airways
, Air India
, Vistara, AirAsia India and GoAir also fly on this route, daily. The availability of flights late at night allows passengers to avoid the peak-hour rush. These facilitate business travellers to return on the same day after attending their meeting. Passengers should carefully check the departure terminal because depending on the carrier, this route is flown from terminals T1D and T3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport. While IndiGo flies entirely out of Terminal T1D, SpiceJet and GoAir also operate some flights from this terminal.
Budget carriers, such as IndiGo, SpiceJet, Go Air
and AirAsia India
, provide the lowest fare
, but operate only Economy Class. These do not offer any entertainment or serve free meals on board. On the contrary, legacy carriers like Vistara, Jet Airways and Air India have at least two classes of travel, and their tickets are generally priced higher than those of the budget carriers. The reason for the elevated cost is that these airlines
offer entertainment and serve free meals during most flights.
If passengers are travelling on connecting flights, operated by the same carriers on the same PNR, then the through check-in facility for baggage is provided by the airline. This enables people to check-in their luggage only once, and take it from the final destination without having to check it in again at the stopover location. However, passengers must ask the airline about this at the time of making the reservation.
Connecting flights generally have stopovers in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Goa and Hyderabad. These connections enable passengers, boarding Delhi-Bangalore flights, to travel from these cities to Bangalore as well. However, the time taken by these flights could vary from 4 hours to 19 hours. Passengers are therefore requested to take due note of the stopover time before booking their ticket.
