Plane Spotting Delhi

Note-Exercise extreme caution when spotting in Delhi, even from the hotel room. Two British enthusiasts were arrested at the Radisson 2010 when a cleaner reported them for suspicious behaviour. The hotels are detailed below for reference only and do not imply that spotting is safe from these locations.

 

Radisson Blu Hotel
Is located on the Eastern perimeter of New Delhi Airport and is one of the more westernised, upper class hotels in this area.
Location: ** Located on the Eastern perimeter with some rooms offering views of the airport.
Spotting: **

Rooms 456-474 offer views of both inbounds and departures off Runways 28 and 29. Departures can also be seen on Runway 27. Any aircraft departing off Runway 28 should be close enough to be read off, however Runway 29 appears to be the busier runway now the new terminal is open (SBS needed for these movements). Indigo, Spicejet and Go still operate from the old terminal so should be read off as they depart on Runways 27 and 28 in front of you. Runway 29, which is used by traffic from the new Terminal is out to your left and SBS is required as it is impossible to read traffic off from this runway.

Room 472 is a business class room whilst 456 is a cheaper Premium Room.

Recent reports have indicated that overgrown trees and new buildings are beginning to obscure the views from the hotel, however with flight tracking software most movements can still be tied up, if not all read off.

Photos: * No reports
Value: * Expensive at around £106 a night.

Spotting: ** Has a good view of the action on Runway 27 and 28 with most movements visible to be read off from these runways.
Photos: * No reports

Hyatt Regency
Is a luxury hotel situated on the western suburbs of New Dehli. The hotel has free wi-fi in every room  
Location: * On around a 3 mile final to the westerly runways
Spotting: * Ask for a high level room overlooking the swimming pool area. SBS will be required to tie traffic up as views can be distant. Traffic which passes close to the hotel is on the military/bizz jet runway. Traffic passes the hotel inbound at around 2500 feet. Subject to visibility and cloud base airliners landing on the far runways can be seen but flight tracking software is required for tie up.
Photos: * No reports
Value: ** Reasonable for a top class hotel at around £92 a night.

The hotel can be booked through any of the following link  AGODA
