As directed by the Government of India, DIAL has taken several safety measures with all key stakeholders to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

DIAL CEO Videh Kumar Jaipuriar was quoted by Business World as saying: “We would like to assure passengers that at Delhi Airport, they would be in a safe and healthy environment.

“Our teams have worked round-the-clock to sanitise the vast terminal. DIAL will continue its awareness drive by educating and encouraging passengers to maintain social distance while at the airport.”

According to an airport official, measures such as adequate seating arrangements with social distancing markings, sanitisation of high contact surfaces, and contactless retail outlets are in place to ensure passenger safety.
