Take fulsome pride in the city's top dog airport? Well, things are going to change big time and it's going to get way bigger and much better!

What's the plan | Terminal 1 which is currently spread out over a mammoth 53,000 sq m will now be expanded to 133,000 sq m along with ten more aerobridges being constructed and the best bit - the boarding gates will go up from 8 to 25. Woo hoo!

Once this expansion is done, Terminal 4 will be constructed, which will cater to all the domestic carriers and Terminal 3 will thenceforth deal with only international flights. So Delhi's IGI will become the first in the country to boast of 4 terminals!

This construction will start sometime in 2016 and is expected to be fully completed by 2018. Here's giving a big round of applause for all the heavy air traffic issues that'll now be sorted and a swanky, revamped airport!
