The Automated People Mover (APM), which is a Metro rail without a driver would help travelers commute around the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport by 2020. The driverless Metro rail will help travelers transit from one terminal to another at the busiest airport of India.
- As per the recommendation of Master Plan of 2016, Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha said, the APM is expected to be made available by 2020.
- The design, project cost & other details of the APM have been finalised, the Minister said.
- Delhi International Airport Ltd. (DIAL), the GMR-led joint venture (JV) consortium which manages IGI, has already taken steps to explore all technical possibilities with DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation).
- Sinha said,“The total length of the proposed APM alignment is 5.5 kilometer out of which 1.5 kilometer is underground and 4 kilometer is elevated.”
- This service will bring IGI on a par with some of the swankiest airports across the world, such as Hong Kong, Changi Paris, Munich and London, which also provide this facility.
