Flying to Delhi after October 1? Then make sure that you verify the terminal that you will be using.
An imminent rise in the number of flights being operated by airlines has resulted in the GMR-operated Indira Gandhi International Airport shifting a part of flight operations to Terminal 2 in order to accommodate the growing capacity while ensuring all COVID-related safety measures were followed.
IndiGo, which is currently operating more than 105 domestic flights from Terminal 3, will be shifting some flights to Terminal 2 at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi, from October 1.
All the flights with call signs between 6E 2000 and 6E 2999 will be departing from and arriving at Terminal 2 of IGI Airport, while the rest will operate from T3. The transfer process between these two terminals has been optimised to provide a seamless experience to the passengers.
During this transition phase, IndiGo has taken measures to ensure passengers are informed at every stage while flying with 6E. IndiGo is reaching out to all impacted passengers and their respective travel agents via SMS, calls, and emails provided in reservation.
IndiGo passengers are requested to retrieve their PNR on IndiGo’s website or mobile app to check their terminal before leaving for the airport.
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, President and Chief Operating Officer, IndiGo said, “We are working very closely with the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) to shift nearly half of our domestic operations from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2 at IGI Airport. As the capacities grow, operations from Terminal 2 will also allow adequate space to maintain social distancing guidelines while providing a safe and hassle-free travel experience.”
Similarly, GoAir will also operate all its domestic flights to and from Delhi, from Terminal 2, effective October 1.
Earlier in August, GoAir and peer SpiceJet, had shifted their operations to Terminal 3, when domestic flights resumed from September 5, due to expansion work at the second terminal. The change in terminals come even as all airline slowly scale up their operations after domestic flights resumed post the COVID-19 lockdown.
