New Delhi: GMR-led Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) on Friday announced that it has launched a doorstep baggage transfer facility for passengers flying to and from Delhi Airport.
After a successful trial, the facility has been officially launched at Terminal 3. The service has been introduced in collaboration with Bengaluru-based ‘CarterX’, as part of DIAL’s endeavour to provide a world-class experience to its passengers.
