Along with Germany’s Frankfurt Airport and China’s Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in Delhi has bagged the second position amongst the world’s safest aviation facility in a survey conducted by Safe Travel Barometer, an industry-first rating initiative.

Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), a GMR-led consortium, in an official release said the Safe Travel Barometer has certified the Delhi Airport as the second safest airport for effective implementation of coronavirus health and safety protocols.

“Close on the heels of Singapore Changi Airport, which scored 4.7 out of 5, Delhi’s IGI Airport has bagged the second position in the Safe Travel Barometer’s list by scoring 4.6 along with Frankfurt Airport and Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport.

The Safe Travel Score is an industry-first rating initiative by Safe Travel Barometer, which assessed more than 200 airports on their implementation of coronavirus health and safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.
