India 2019: Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport

This is India's busiest airport, the 12th busiest in the world and 6th busiest in Asia. We arrived, in the gloom of a polluted dawn, at Terminal 3, and departed from Terminal 2 eight days later in the gloom of a polluted but sunlit afternoon. The terminals are modern, airy, and very impressive, and the atmosphere inside was very pleasant.
