The Delhi Aerocity (Hindi: दिल्ली एरोसिटी) Metro Station is located on the Delhi Airport Express Line of the Delhi Metro.[1] This station is located near the NH-8 highway. While the Airport Express Line was opened on 23 February 2011, this station was not opened to the public until Independence Day, Monday 15 August 2011, to allow a buildup of demand.

The metro station was constructed to connect Delhi Metro with Indira Gandhi International Airport, expected to ultimately house 16 luxury hotels and commercial spaces, it was conceived and approved as a part of the Delhi Airport master plan. The hospitality district of the aerocity offers quick access to the airport, besides being centrally located between the business areas of Delhi and Gurgaon.

Station is at walking distance to Mahipalpur, New Delhi, situated at Delhi-Gurgaon Border.
