Indigo moves some flights to Terminal 2

A day after SpiceJet announced shifting its entire operations to the integrated Terminal 2 at Mumbai airport, GoAir on Wednesday said it was moving its entire domestic operations to Terminal 1, while Indigo announced shifting some flights to the integrated terminal.

Indigo said it was shifting flights to T2 to support aviation bodies in their revamp of airport infrastructure at Delhi and Mumbai. “All the flights with call sign between 6E 5000-6E 5999 will be departing from and arriving at Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi and Terminal 2 of Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai,” an airline spokesperson said.

GoAir said in a statement that from October 1, it will operate all its domestic flights from Terminal 1. “This move will immensely benefit GoAir passengers as they will be able to easily demarcate the terminal they need to go to — Terminal 1 for domestic flights, Terminal 2 for international flights. Internally, the shift of domestic flights to Terminal 1 will streamline the departure and arrival process for GoAir and create greater synergies.”

A GoAir spokesperson said the Ministry of Civil Aviation had extended the use of slots, originally allocated to Jet Airways, till December 31, on a temporary basis. “We are committed to providing a secure and efficient transportation at all times with attention to essential details,” the spokesperson said.

IndiGo said it had taken measures to ensure passengers are informed at every stage while flying with it. “IndiGo is reaching out to all affected passengers and their respective travel agents via SMS, calls, and emails provided in reservation. Passengers are requested to retrieve their PNR on our website or mobile app to check their terminal before leaving for the airport,” the spokesperson said.

William Boulter, chief commercial officer, IndiGo, said, “As we expand our domestic and international operations, we are also spreading our footprint across airports within Delhi and Mumbai. September 5 onwards, IndiGo will be operating domestic flights from Terminals 1, 2 and 3 in Delhi and Terminals 1 and 2 in Mumbai. We request all the passengers to check their terminal before departing for airport. This move has come as part of enhancing the overall airport infrastructure of these cities. IndiGo, with its focus on supporting economic growth through increased mobility, is happy to cooperate with the authorities.”
