Get Ready To Board Low-Cost Flights To Metro Cities From Delhi’s Terminal T2, as T1 to undergo Rennovation

Team DefenceAviationPost

Soon flights to Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkata from Delhi will have to be boarded from the Terminal-2 (T2) airport. The shift is likely to take place by mid or latest by February amidst opposition from low cost carriers like SpiceJet and GoAir.

Reports said that the GMR-led Delhi International Airport (DIAL) has asked IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir to shift operations from Terminal-1 (T1), out of which they currently operate.

This is because of the expansion and renovation work proposed to be undertaken by DIAL at the T1 terminal. DIAL has already spoken of its plans to expand Terminal 1 to a much bigger facility. So during this expansion, it had stated that it is possible that some traffic gets shifted to Terminal 2. But, this shift is only a stopgap arrangement so as to minimise inconvenience to passengers. Haj operations will continue as before without any change.

Sources said that post-expansion, these airlines will shift back their operations to T1, after which Delhi can boast of full-fledged three terminals —one that will cater specifically for international airlines, the other for low cost domestic carriers and the third for full-service domestic airlines. Another Terminal T-4 is on the cards to cater to full servive domestic carriers like Air India and The Jet Airways.

T1 is built on an area of 53,000 square metres. After expansion, it will be spread over 133,000 square metres. A total of 10 aerobridges are likely to be constructed and the number of boarding gates will increase from eight to 25.
