Delhi is India’s capital territory and is a huge metropolitan area with a population of around 19 million people. While plenty of business travelers fly into the city, it is also very popular with tourists. Many long-term travelers start their epic exploration of the Indian sub-continent in Delhi. It is also popular for those taking shorter vacations. For many tourists, Delhi is the first point on the ever popular Delhi-Agra-Jaipur triangle, taking in some of the most amazing sights and experiences northern India has to offer.
Flying to Delhi
1. Which Airports serve Dubai to Delhi?
Flights from Dubai to Delhi depart from Dubai International Airport and arrive at Indira Ghandi International Airport, situated in the district of Palam, around 10 miles from New Delhi’s city center. There is a tram service into the city, or you can take a taxi. It is worth asking your hotel if they offer a pick-up service. Often this will be free for guests, or available for a small extra fee.
2. Which Airlines operate flights from Dubai to Delhi?
There are a variety of carriers that fly direct from Dubai to Delhi, including Air India, Emirates, Jet Airways, IndiGo, Fly Dubai and Spice Jet. Most carriers offer daily flights throughout the year. This gives you plenty of choices, from the award-winning Emirates (named Airline of The Year at the 2018 Air Transport awards) to more affordable options such as Fly Dubai and Spice Jet.
3. How long is the flight?
A direct flight from Dubai to Delhi will take approximately 3 hours and 25 minutes from departure to arrival. There is a small time zone difference, with Delhi being 1 hour and 30 minutes ahead to Dubai.
4. Climate changes between Dubai and Delhi
Both Dubai and Delhi tend to experience very hot summers, but Delhi is much cooler in the winter months. Whereas Dubai is fairly dry all year round Delhi experiences more rain, especially in July and August, so pack accordingly.
5. Culture differences and need-to-know
The national currency is the Indian Rupee, which you can buy easily before you go, or when you get to India. Credit cards are widely accepted, but cash is useful for shopping (especially when haggling).
Most travelers need a visa to enter India. Depending on your nationality, you may have to apply in advance, or on arrival. An e-Visa can be issued online, if you come from an eligible country, and this should be done at least four days in advance.
Traveling from the dry heat of Dubai to the lower temperatures of a Delhi winter (or the rain of the summer season) can be a shock. You also won’t find the streets as clean and orderly as in Dubai. Visible signs of poverty are common in Delhi, which will be all the more pronounced after spending time in Dubai, so be prepared for this. There are many amazing sights to take in though, so make the most of your time here.
Top attractions in Delhi include the Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, and the Jama Masjid mosque. Don’t forget to sample some of Delhi’s varied and popular street food.
