Delhi's T2 terminal to become operational from October 1
New Delhi : The domestic flights will start to take off and land from Terminal 2 of Delhi airport from October 1 onwards, said its operator DIAL on Monday.
Currently, the flights are operating from only Terminal 3 since March 23, when lockdown was imposed in the nation to stop spread of coronavirus.
"The resumption of operations at T2 will be with 96 air traffic movements (48 departures and 48 arrivals) per day and increase progressively up to 180 by end of October," said a DIAL press release.
As per the notification, IndiGo will operate all its flights with call signs between 6E2000 and 6E2999 from the T2 terminal. Moreover, entire flight operations of GoAir will be conducted from the T2 from October 1, said the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL).
"About 27 counters – 11 for GoAir and 16 for IndiGo - have been created to cater to passengers of respective flights,” the DIAL noted.
Amid pandemic, India had suspended all its international flights from March 23 and it had cancelled the domestic flight operations from March 25. However, medical evacuation flights and special flights permitted by the aviation regulator DGCA have been allowed to operate.
India resumed scheduled domestic passenger flights from May 25 but in a curtailed manner. Airlines are allowed to operate not more than 60 per cent of pre-Covid domestic flights currently.
International flight operations are still suspended and only a few countries are allowed to operate flight to and from India under an Air Bubble agreement.
