I have seen some great pictures of I.G.I International airport of Delhi which is under construction and would be considered one of the modern airports in India. T3 is world's no.3 largest terminal:D

Interiors look pretty awesome but exterior looks just ok. The design of outer structures is similar to the structures in 80s. South Korea's Icheon Airport is one of the most beautiful and modern airports in the world.

Bombay's international airport will be more beautiful than I.G.I. airport. I wonder what made Delhi political leaders choose for simple design of I.G.I's outer structures.

Phase - I of Hyderabad and Bangalore Airport are complete and opened to ublic more than 1 year before.

IGI, Delhi will be great. Phase -I of its modernisation will be complete in next 4/5 months. It will be the only airport in India to have 3 operational runway. By 2020 a 4th runway will be added.

Mumbai Airports modernisation is in progress and will be complete in 2011.

Chennai and Kolkata Airport are also getting modernised.

Many other International and domestic airports are also being modernised.
