IndiGo and SpiceJet have been moved partially from T1 to the newly revamped T2 of IGI Airport with effect from March 25, 2018. These include direct flights (flight nos. 6E 2000 to 6E 2999) to 10 sectors of IndiGo i.e. Amritsar, Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Bhubaneshwar, Chennai, Raipur, Srinagar, Udaipur, Vadodaraand Vishakhapatnam. The direct flights (flight nos. SG 8000 to SG 8999) of SpiceJet moving to T2 are Ahmedabad, Cochin, Goa, Gorakhpur, Patna, Pune and Surat.
Commenting on the development, I Prabhakara Rao, CEO-DIAL said, “In view of the robust passenger growth and upcoming airport expansion works, IndiGo and SpiceJet are moving partly to Terminal 2 and we welcome both the Airlines. This will enable us to start the expansion works at Terminal 1 that will be carried out over the next 3-4 years.”
An extensive signage exercise has been done at IGIA for helping passengers with directions and locations of their respective terminals. For passengers inadvertently reaching the wrong terminals, free shuttles with specially trained drivers have been introduced to and from T1 and T2. Extra manpower has also been deployed for guiding any wrongly landed passengers. Delhi Airport is actively disseminating information on Twitter using #ShiftingToT2. Further, additional tabs on Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and directional map have been incorporated in the Delhi Airport’s website to help passengers reach the right terminal.
