Delhi Airport Development Fee

Allison Sodha

Effective December 1, 2011, the Airport Development Fee (ADF) at the Delhi IGI airport will be reinstated as follows:

International Departure - Rs. 1434

Domestic Departure - Rs. 221

The ADF is not included in any airline tickets that were purchased before November 28, 2011, and passengers will need to pay the additional fee at the check-in counter. Payment must be made in INR - no USD will be accepted - and the fee is per person, including children and infants. The ADF will be included in any new tickets being issued, unless otherwise noted.

The ADF started in March 2009 as a way for passengers to help fund the Delhi airport expansion project. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
