PM Modi Inaugurates Delhi Airport Metro Express Line Extension

New Delhi - Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Delhi Airport Metro Express line extension on Sunday. Prior to the inauguration, the Prime Minister also rode the Delhi Metro. The newly added two-kilometer section of the Airport Express line runs from Dwarka Sector 21 to a recently established metro station called 'YashoBhoomi Dwarka Sector 25.' PM Modi opted for a metro ride to reach the Yashobhoomi Convention Centre in Dwarka.

"Passenger operations for this new extension will commence at 3 pm on Sunday. This addition increases the total length of the Airport Express line, stretching from New Delhi to YashoBhoomi Dwarka Sector-25, to 24.9 kilometers," stated the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). The new station will enhance urban connectivity in Dwarka and simplify travel from central Delhi to the IICC, according to officials. Metro passengers can now reach IGI Airport from New Delhi station in just 15 minutes and 30 seconds.

"The operational speed of trains on the Airport Express Line is set to rise to 120 kmph, making it the fastest metro corridor in the country. Currently, it takes 19 minutes to travel between the airport and New Delhi station.

"'This significant increase in speed on India's fastest metro corridor, gradually going from 90 kmph to 120 kmph, has been made possible through meticulous planning and time-bound implementation by engineers from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation in consultation with various government agencies and domain experts,' said Anuj Dayal, Principal Executive Director of Corporate Communications at DMRC."
