New Delhi: Airport Metro has resumed check-in facility for domestic and international flyers at the New Delhi station. At present, Air India and Jet Airways will provide domestic and international check-in at the station while talks are on with other airlines that have international service to set up their check-in counters at the station.
The check-in facility was first started in February 2012. However, the Airport Metro was shut down in July the same year due to safety issues and it resumed functioning in January 2013. The check-in facility, which started on Friday, will be available at the New Delhi Airport Metro station from 6 am to 8 pm.
Passengers will have to check-in minimum two and half hours prior to their flight time. Passengers on domestic and international flights can check-in and collect their boarding passes maximum eight hours prior to their flight time.
"The city check-in facility at the Airport Metro stations will be highly beneficial for the domestic and international airline passengers, who can hand-over their luggage well in advance and utilize their time in a more fruitful manner. This would be immensely helpful for up-country passengers who wish to catch international flights," a company statement said.

Facilities such as cloak room, trolley and porter Service, radio cab service, Wi-Fi at stations among others are made available at the station for the passengers and the flyers.
