It is expected that within a year, the metro will start filling the corridor at an average speed of 120 kmph. After this, passengers will be able to reach Terminal 3 Metro Station of Indira Gandhi International Airport from New Delhi Railway Station in just 15 minutes. At present, it takes 19 minutes to cover this distance.

The length of the Airport Express Line between New Delhi to Dwarka Sector 21 is 22.7 km. There are 6 metro stations on the Airport Express Line namely New Delhi, Shivaji Stadium, Dhaula Kuan, Aerocity Airport Terminal 3 and Dwarka Sector 21.

Metro speed will be increased in a phased manner
DMRC also said that the speed of the metro on the corridor will be increased phase wise. For this, first the tension clamp of the track will be changed to make it a tension clamp of high frequency.
