Peak season:

Travellers that book cheap flights to Delhi will be captivated, and probably somewhat overwhelmed, by India’s capital, and second most populous city. Inhabited since the 6th century BC Delhi is split into the old and the new. Old Delhi is the chaotic, crowded symbolic heart with a tangle of streets, bustling bazaars and spiritual temples. While New Delhi’s wide tree­lined boulevards are the result of colonial­era town planning and houses the official seat of government. This collision of new and old, planned and organic is what gives Delhi its energy and, many Indians believe, its soul. Spring (February to April) and autumn (October to November) are the peak times for visitors to take flights to Delhi. This is when the weather is optimal for sightseeing with temperatures averaging 18C ­- 22C and the humidity is lower. Winter (December to January) is also a great time with hardly any rainfall and afternoon temperatures of around 20C. It does get chilly in the mornings and evenings so layers are recommended.


Off season:

Between April and June, the summer temperatures can reach up to 45C putting off all but the staunchest of tourists. The monsoon (July to mid­-September) can make for a wet visit but photography wise it will produce some stunning images. Look out for the cheapest flights to Delhi during this period.
