Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal 3Back to Projects list
- New Delhi
Inaugurated in July 2010, Terminal 3 at Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi, has a capacity of 34 million passengers a year and is reputed to be the fifth largest airport passenger terminal in the world.
The huge 111,600 square meter complex is arranged on nine levels and has two piers, each of which is 1.2 km long. The airport's vital statistics include 169 check-in counters, 78 gates, 97 automatic walkways, 96 immigration counters, 20,000 sq m of retail space and 14 baggage carousels.
All of this requires lighting and illumination. Even though 80 percent of the terminal's structure is made of glass, the airport's lighting system is huge. It comprises more than 100,000 light fittings and illumination points, and some 11,000 electrical and electronic devices like actuators, dimmers and detectors.
