IndiGo case on Delhi terminal

First published on 15-Nov-2017

New Delhi: IndiGo has moved court against an order by the Delhi airport operator asking the airline to partially shift operations to Terminal 2 from Terminal 1, a civil aviation ministry official said on Tuesday.

Delhi International Airport Ltd, or DIAL, has cited capacity constraints in asking IndiGo and SpiceJet to shift from January 4, 2018. Both carriers have expressed unhappiness, with IndiGo filing a petition before Delhi High Court. T2 is around 5km from T1.

Civil aviation secretary R.N. Choubey said the ministry is working on a common ground. "We are still working out a common ground... otherwise the matter is in court. IndiGo has gone to court and no stay has been given (so far)."

On October 29, GoAir had shifted its entire operations to T2 . till an expansion work at T1 is complete. T1 handled 24 million passengers in 2016-17, four million more than its official annual capacity. Under a master plan drawn up for revamp, the.capacity of T1 is to be doubled to 40 million. PTI
