Post completion of infrastructure enhancement at T2, the terminal will be able to handle 18 million passengers per annum (MPPA), up from the current 15 MPPA, the DIAL said.
At present, GoAir fully and SpiceJet and IndiGo partially operate their domestic flights from the T2 terminal.
Air India, Vistara and Air Asia India operate completely out of the T3 terminal.
The revamped Terminal 2 was opened in October 2017, which saw the partial shifting of flight operations of SpiceJet and IndiGo, and complete shifting of GoAir from Terminal 1.
Ajay Singh, the Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet, said, “I am pleased to share that from September 5, 2019, SpiceJet will consolidate its operations at Delhi airport by shifting entirely from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3.”
“With this, our flight operations would be restricted to just two terminals – T 1 and T3 – of the Delhi airport. This move will enhance the convenience of passengers traveling with us and provide them greater comfort and ease in transiting between domestic and international flights,” he added.
