Japan Airlines (JAL) will relocate its flight operations from Terminal 2 of Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, to the airport’s newest Terminal 3.

In Terminal 3, JAL customers can check in for their flights at a dedicated JAL check-in island located conveniently near the security screeners and from mid-August*, eligible JAL passengers may also access the lounge of India’s leading domestic carrier - Kingfisher.  Kingfisher is slated to join in 2011, the world’s leading quality airline alliance oneworld, of which JAL is also a member. The lounge, designed in hues of red, offers wireless LAN connections, shower facilities and a business center among other amenities. JAL’s top tier frequent flyers who are entitled to use the lounge, may also bring one accompanying passenger each.
*Information of an interim lounge that will be used before the completion of the relocation will be provided to passengers.

The construction of the ultra-modern Terminal 3, a befitting symbol of India’s swift and vast economic growth and expansion, was completed within 37 months and boasts the use of state-of-the-art technologies. An outstanding facility among airports in Asia, its function as a strategic hub in South Asia is highly anticipated. The 120-acre terminal, in which several Indian carriers are also scheduled to commence domestic operations from August 27*2, will enable passengers to smoothly transfer between international and domestic flights. In addition, it is an excellent gateway for passengers traveling from the east of Asia to the Middle East.

Japan Airlines operates 3 weekly flights direct from Tokyo, Narita to New Delhi using a Boeing 777-200 configured with the award-winning JAL Shell Flat Seat in Executive class and JAL Sky Shell Seat in Premium Economy.
