New Delhi, Sep 14 (UNI) Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) has commissioned a new IP based digital EPABX system with advanced multimedia applications and services to improve passenger facilitation.

With the implementation of the exchange, the airport now receives a new set of telephone numbers. Callers can now dial: (011) 2566-1000 for terminal 1 (both 1A and 1B), (011) 2560-2000 for terminal 2 (international) and (011) 2560-1000 for international cargo terminal.

The users at airport can avail advanced voice and multimedia features. The system is also beneficial to the security agencies based at the airport as it can trace malicious calls through caller line identification (CLI) and call detail log.

DIAL is currently implementing master plan for development of a new airport complex. Work on the integrated passenger terminal and runway started in February and the new terminal will be inaugurated in 2010 before the Commonwealth Games.

The IGI Airport is one of the largest airports in India with over 20 million passengers per year. The new airport building will have an ultimate design capacity of 100 million passengers per year after completion of planned phases of construction.
