Flying from Delhi? Check your terminal before boarding from October
Passengers who will be boarding flights from October 1 onwards will have to face tough time as Delhi International Airport Ltd has decided to shift its one-third operations from newly renovated Terminal 2 (T2) as it plans capacity expansion at the Terminal 1 (T1) to meet rising demand.
The capacity of T1 is 20 million passengers, while it handles 24 million passengers. IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir who are operating flights from T1 have been asked to inform DIAL by August 31 about shifting part of their operations to T2. The airlines have to decide which routes they want to offer from T2.
Currently, there are two operational terminals at the airport -- T1 and T3.
As part of the makeover, T1D and T1C will be expanded and merged into a single terminal and expanded to accommodate 40 million passengers a year. This was announced during an official unveiling of the master plan on Tuesday, at the Delhi Airport.
