New Delhi: Good news for passengers who take morning and late night flights from the national capital.

From tomorrow, Delhi Metro's Airport Express Line will operate for 18 hours instead of the current 16 hours thus enabling morning fliers to travel to the airport by the high-speed corridor.

A spokesman of Reliance Infra, which operates the line, said service timings on the corridor would be from 5 AM to 11 PM.

"Airport Express will be catering to international as well as domestic passengers arriving or departing by late night or early morning flights.Increased service hours will be equally helpful for passengers coming from Dwarka or IGI who want to catch early morning or late night trains from the New Delhi Railway Station," the spokesman said.

The line, which began operational in February, ferries over 7,000 passengers a day. The spokesman said the Airport Express will soon increase its operating hours to 20 hours a day.

Two other stations Dhaula Kuan and Delhi Aerocity (NH8) stations are ready for passenger service and will open very shortly, he said.
