New Delhi: Now, shop at your favourite
store and dine at multi-cuisine restaurants before taking the
high-speed Airport Express Metro.

The Reliance Infra-led consotrium, which runs the
Delhi Airport Metro Express Private Limited, will soon launch
retail outlets at New Delhi and Shivaji Stadium stations in
the national capital.

The Shivaji Stadium station will have retail shops and
a food court that will offer plenty of variety to shoppers.

"Tourists can also use various facilities like
shopping, food court, and tourism information whereas
overnight traveler can use shower/relaxation lounge etc. The
station will also have a mini Dilli haat and also provide
preview of mini Delhi," a Reliance Infra spokesperson said.

A total of around 120 outlets will be set up at New
Delhi and Shivaji Stadium stations and ample space in these
two stations have been earmarked for setting up the retail
outlets and food courts.

The retail shopping space will be at the non-paid
area, where even the non-commuters can come and have the
retail shopping experience.

"City check-in facilities are also available at both
the stations of Airport Metro Express where there is also a
provision for 6 hours early check-in for its commuters. The
early check-in time will be further increased in future," the

He said Internal studies have shown that utilizing the
station space as a retail destination can be a major source of
revenue.

Connaught Place in the city to the IGI Airport in flat 18
minutes.
