Arrival at New Delhi Airport : A group transport will be arranged from the hotel to the airport. This time is based on when the majority of the travelers are departing  (which we will know as soon as all of the flight itineraries are sent to Brooke). We are aiming for flights that depart between 1am-3:30am. If your flight leaves at a different time than the group, Spiritual Vacations will still arrange for your transport, however you will cover that cost- which should not be very much:) Those who would like to arrive earlier to the airport can enjoy the Airport Spa and relax.
