Airport Express line: Another Star in Dwarka's Success

World class Airport Express Line is now available for Dwarka. It's not just a Metro Line but a feeling that we are progressing, Delhi is progressing & Dwarka is progressing. No one can forget the painful days of reaching international airport which was full of mismanagement around Taxi services in & out of airport. But with this I think the monopoly of shattered taxis is over & now we can too enjoy the world class services in the world class airport. Delhi has joined a select few cities in the world to have a high-speed corridor to the airport bringing the Indira Gandhi International Airport closer to the heart of the Capital.

Metro Station Airport Express line is a dedicated line running between New Delhi railway station to Dwarka Sector-21 via the Airport.
