Both Indigo and SpiceJet partially operate from T2 terminal at Delhi Airport for their domestic flights
NEW DELHI: SpiceJet and Indigo airlines have decided to shift their operations from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3 at Delhi Airport. While Indigo is planning to shift only a part of its operations, SpiceJet will shift its entire operations.
The change will take place from September 5, 2019. This was announced by the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) on Monday.
The move is being seen as an effort by DIAL to enhance passenger experience. Currently, the operations at Terminal 2 are experiencing large amounts of traffic. Due to this, it was decided to shift operations to Terminal 3 in order to balance the air traffic that was persistent.
The move will decrease passenger load at T2 by 27 percent.
The shifting will also enable the airport to develop the infrastructure further. This will help in handling increasing passenger traffic at the Delhi Airport.
In a statement, DIAL said, “Post completion of capacity enhancement of T2, the terminal will be able to handle 18 million passengers per annum.”
