What are the airports for flights from Sydney to Delhi?
When travellers book flights to Delhi from Sydney, they usually look at Sydney Airport (Kingsford Smith Airport) and Indira Gandhi International Airport at Delhi. The airport at Sydney is the busiest airport in Australia and is located to the south of Sydney’s central district.

The airport at Delhi serves as an aviation hub for the north part of India and is the sixth busiest airport in Asia. It can be reached via Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway – the busiest inter-city route in India, or by low-floor buses that run between the city and terminals.
Do any airlines fly direct from Sydney to Delhi?
Unfortunately, direct flights from Sydney to Delhi are not currently available. The most common flight route that is now being operated is via Dubai and is served by Emirates. There are a few more route options, such as the one which changes flights at Abu Dhabi, and this route is operated by Etihad Airways; or in Sri Lanka – served by Srilankan Airlines. Those are usually less popular because of their schedule and the long stopover times.
What are good stopover options on the way from Sydney to Delhi?
As mentioned, the most common route chosen by passengers is via Dubai. The stop duration is less than 5 hours, but this route is usually slightly more expensive than the rest. The option to change flights at Abu Dhabi will cost you a 17 hour stopover which you can fill by going shopping or relaxing at one of the world’s biggest and busiest airports. Travelling via Sri Lanka will also set you back by around 15 hours.
