Low cost airlines, DIAL to meet aviation secy July 31 over shift to Terminal 2

The three budget airlines— InterGlobe Aviation-run IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir – and GMR Infrastructure-controlled Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) will meet Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey on July 31 to resolve the impasse arising out of no airline willing to shift to terminal T2 of the Delhi airport, according to an official with one of the carriers.

July 15 was the deadline for the airline companies to resolve among themselves on shift to the terminal.

DIAL wants one or more of these airlines to shift their operations to T2 in order to undertake expansion of T1. As per the agreement signed between the airlines and the airport operator, DIAL has the right to ask any airline to shift its operations.

Low-cost carriers use T1, also called the domestic airport, for all their local and international flights from and to Delhi. The Delhi airport currently has three terminals with T3 being used by full service local carriers for both their domestic and international flights.
