As air travel’s restrictions are gradually being lifted and the aviation industry is returning back to its normal condition, IGI Airport’s (Indira Gandhi International Airport) Terminal-2 will again become operational from October 1 to handle more domestic flights.
Because of the Covid-19 lockdown, Only T3 terminal is being used at IGIA for all flights.
But as the traveling is coming back to its normal conditions, the T3 is operating at its full capacity, and so, Delhi Airport Ltd (DIAL) has decided to add flights from next door Terminal-2.
While reactivating T1 will require a much larger growth in traffic, its not-in-use status gives the airport operator a free hand for the ongoing expansion work there.
