The most popular time to book flights to Delhi is October to March. The coolest and driest season in the city, these winter months see average temperatures of between 15˚C and 20˚C and very little rain.
Summers in Delhi are hot and humid. The hottest months are March to June when temperatures can easily reach 40˚C. If you do decide to book flights to Delhi at this sweltering time of year, you’ll find you have many of the city’s attractions to yourself as the peak season crowds evaporate.
The monsoon season begins to make itself felt around the end of June. This wet weather, combined with high summer temperatures, can make sightseeing a challenge.

As well as serving Delhi and the surrounding area, Indira Gandhi International is the busiest airport in India. Every year, tens of millions of passengers pass through its terminals on their way to destinations across India and around the world.
Flights depart from Indira Gandhi International for Europe, the US, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, giving passengers a fantastic choice of direct services.
The Delhi Airport Metro Express links the airport with the city centre and rail services are also located close to the terminal. Buses and taxis are available at the airport and many hotels in the city offer transfers.
A number of airlines offer direct and connecting services between UK airports and Delhi.
The roads in Delhi are famously congested so you might want to avoid taxis and buses if you’re in a rush.
The city’s metro network is fast and efficient and links most parts of Delhi. Pick up a ‘Tourist Card’ and you’ll be able to use the network as much as you want for either one or three days. The first car of every metro train is reserved for women only.
If you want to see a little more of the city, and aren’t in a rush to get anywhere, buses are a good way to get around. Fares are cheap and the network is very extensive. Travelling by bus also gives you the chance to experience an authentic slice of life in Delhi.
Taxis and rickshaws are also available in most parts of the city.
The most famous site in Delhi is the Red Fort. Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (the same man who commissioned the Taj Mahal), the fort was completed at the end of the 17th century. The fort complex is filled with beautiful historic buildings and lush gardens. Spend a day exploring its various spaces and learning about the city’s history.
The Qutub complex is another of Delhi’s must-see attractions. A designated Unesco World Heritage site, the complex centres around the Qutub Minar, a five-storey, 72.5m minaret. Built between 1193 and 1368, the intricately carved landmark is one of the symbols of the city.
If you want to soak up the atmosphere of the metropolis and get a real feel for the city, head to Old Delhi. Originally founded as a walled city, it’s a fantastic place to experience the sights and sounds of India.
