IGI Airport handled 69.23 million passengers in 2018-19 of which about 40 million passengers used Terminal T3. The carpet flooring at IGI airport Terminal T3 caused great inconvenience for several passengers. Extensive use and regular buggy movement have flattened the rugs in some parts. Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) and Union civil aviation ministry proposed a plan to revamp its existing carpet floor to ensure safety & convenience of passengers and its staffs. They required a flooring solution that can withstand intense foot & wheeled traffic, anti-slippery as well as aesthetically appealing. With intense daily footfall being part of the routine at the airport a durable surface was a necessity, whilst the floor also needed to be attractive and welcoming to passengers at the same time. The Big time challenge is to Revamp the existing carpet at India's top most busiest running airport without creating any trouble to the passengers.
