New Delhi: As last month only, the news of changes in the terminals at the Delhi International Airports comes up. There is shifting of 30% of the operations to terminal T2 of all the three low-cost airlines operating from terminal T1.
Well, airlines like IndiGo don’t agree to shift their operations fully but they can shift them partially. Due to which the shifting has been deferred to January 4.
As of now, the Delhi Airport has offered free shuttle services between its Terminal 1 (T1) and revamped Terminal 2 (T2) for the comfort of the passengers. This will reopen for flights on Sunday after a seven-year gap.
The low-cost carrier GoAir will be shifting its entire operations to T2 at the Indira Gandhi International Airport from October 29. And the airport officials have asked the airlines to shift some of its flights from T1.
On the other hand, airlines like IndiGo and SpiceJet have been given time till January 4 to decide upon the shifting thing.
The new bus service will ensure that the passengers of GoAir won’t go to the wrong terminal and miss their flights.
For differently-abled passengers and pregnant women, there is availability of the dedicated vehicle.
In addition to that, Signages are being put up on airport premises and at TI & T2; information will be displayed to inform passengers about the flights shifting to T2.
Along with that, announcements are also made in metro trains to ensure that passengers arriving at the airport get aware of the right terminal.
After the shifting of partial operations, DIAL can carry on the expansion work at T1.
As per the plan of DIAL, once the work is completed, operations from T2 would be shifted back to T1. Then, T2 would be demolished and a new terminal T4 will be built there.
