A brief power outage lasting several minutes at Delhi's busiest airport, Indira Gandhi International (IGI), led to minor disruptions in terminal services on Monday, according to airport management. A voltage imbalance from the Delhi Transco Limited (DTL) grid temporarily affected all IGI terminals, impacting baggage handling and e-gates, stated a spokesperson for the airport. The IGI Airport in New Delhi, operated by GMR Airports, consists of three terminals for commercial and cargo operations. The backup power system was activated within minutes, and the main power supply was quickly restored, the spokesperson noted. Air conditioning in the terminal ceased functioning during the approximately 7-minute outage but was soon reinstated, as informed by a source to Reuters. In recent weeks, the capital has experienced unprecedented temperatures, exacerbated by water shortages and frequent power cuts. An airline source, preferring anonymity, indicated potential delays in check-in and boarding due to the outage. June marks a peak period for the Indian aviation industry with schools closed for summer vacations. Social media posts depicted passengers in lengthy queues at check-in counters while airline staff awaited the restoration of computer power. India's aviation sector is among the fastest-growing globally, with domestic air travel projected to double to 300 million passengers from the record 152 million in 2023, based on government data.
