Night photos from Delhi Indira Gandhi international airport – the Airbus collection

Continuing our photo essay (see part two) on the night photography at Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), thanks to the support of the kind friends at Delhi International Airport (P) Ltd. (DIAL) and the DGCA, today is the Airbus collection.

Unlike Bangalore where the mid-sized Airbus (since the A380 is not permitted) is the dominant aircraft type, Delhi with its higher traffic volumes, commands the larger aircraft of Boeing, the 777 and 747.

Yet, one does get to see the Airbus of mostly Indian and European airlines.

IndiGo Airbus A320-232 VT-IES. Used for international flights at night and domestic during the day.

Jet Airways Airbus A330-200 VT-JWM.

Aeroflot Airbus A330-200 VP-BLY

SWISS Airbus A330-300 (the longer brother of the -200) HB-JHI

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Airbus A330-200 PH-AOK
