Indigo Will Have to Operate from Terminal 1 and 2 of Delhi Airport
In a blow to Indigo airlines, its assertion that partial movement of its flights from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 of the Delhi will cause inconvenience to the passengers and that DIAL has not been reasonable in asking it to make the shift, the Delhi High Court has ruled that taking care of passengers inconvenience is as much the responsibility of DIAL as well. The Court has asked Indigo to comply with the DIAL order as the existing capacity of the Terminal has been utilised and the airline has plan to have more capacity.
Indigo will now have to shift some of its operations to the new Terminal. In doing so, the existing low cost structure would be hit as additional costs would have to be incurred. The airline is required to make arrangements to shift some of its flights to Terminal 2 and begin operating these by first week of January 2018.
Passengers are requested to check whether their flights arrives/departs to/from Terminal 1 or 2, and also be prepared for some inadvertent increase in fares.
