By Air (Delhi Flights Information): Delhi is well connected with domestic and international flights, to all the major cities within and outside India. Almost all the major airlines have their flights operating from Indira Gandhi International Airport of New Delhi.
Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI, IATA: DEL), located in the west of the city, is the arrival point for many visitors into Delhi. Once one of the worst airports on the planet, the airport has been thoroughly revamped and, with the opening of Terminal 3 in 2010, has been transformed beyond recognition into a thoroughly modern facility.
The airport is split into three terminals, with the domestic terminals commonly known as Palam Airport.
* Terminal 1C (Domestic): Arrivals only
* Terminal 3 (International): All international flights
Delhi By Train: The railway network connects Delhi to the all major and, nearly, all the minor destinations in India. The three important railway stations of Delhi are New Delhi Railway Station, Old Delhi Railway Station and Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station.
Trains arrive at one of four main stations: Delhi Junction, also called Old Delhi or Purani Dilli; the second at New Delhi which lies in Central Delhi; Hazrat Nizamuddin a few kilometers to the south; and the upcoming Anand Vihar station to the east. (A very few trains use Delhi Sarai Rohilla or Delhi Cantt stations.) Delhi Junction and New Delhi Railway Station are now conveniently connected by Metro Line 2, just minutes apart, while Anand Vihar is served by Line 3. It will take about 40 minutes to an hour to travel from the New Delhi Railway Station to the airport by car, depending on traffic.
Delhi By Road: Delhi is well connected, by a network of roads and national highways, with all the major cities in India. Delhi has a confusing slew of inter-state bus termini (ISBT), which all have two names. The Delhi Transport Corporation  is the major operator, but every state also runs its own buses and there are some private operators too.
* Kashmere Gate ISBT (aka Maharana Pratap), Metro Kashmere Gate, Line 1/2. This is “the” ISBT and the largest of the lot. Buses to points north, including Nepal.
* Sarai Kale Khan ISBT (aka Vir Hakikat Rai), next to Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station. Buses to points south.
* Anand Vihar ISBT (aka Swami Vivekanand), on the east bank of Yamuna, Metro: Anand Vihar, Line 3 (end 2009). Buses to points east.
* Bikaner House bus stop. Buses, including air-conditioned Volvo buses from Jaipur arrive at this place. For travel between Jaipur and Delhi, this bus stop is very clean, less crowded than ISBT, and easy to reach.
* Majnu ka Tilla Tibetan colony, a short cyclerickshaw ride from Metro Vidhan Sabha. Buses to Dharamsala.
Delhi Transport – Travelling within Delhi City
Delhi Metro and rail network

All parts of Delhi are well connected by buses and with tickets ranging from 5-15 Rupees they’re very cheap, but they’re also the least comfortable means of transport and the hardest to use. Delhi’s buses are quite crowded, rarely air-conditioned and drivers often drive rashly. Bus routes are often written only in Hindi and bus stops don’t have any route lists, so it can be difficult to find your way. Asking other people at the bus stop is often the best way to find out about bus routes to your destination. Buses are pretty frequent, running every 15-20 min or so on most routes. There are two kinds of buses in Delhi:
* Government run DTC buses
* Privately run Blue-Line buses
A taxi or hired car (usually with driver) is required to see many of the far-flung sites within and around Delhi. To get a taxi or a hired car for Delhi Darshan or Delhi sight Seeing. Most Delhi taxis are old but reliable Ambassadors in distinctive black-and-yellow livery.
By auto rickshaws
Auto rickshaws (also called three-wheeled scooters or simply autos) are good for shorter trips. Always in a distinctive yellow-and-green livery, auto rickshaws are three-wheeled partially enclosed contraptions (no doors!) that run on CNG and can seat three people in the back
