MUMBAI: If you are booked on a domestic flight scheduled to depart from Mumbai airport after mid next week, you don’t have to check which terminal it will depart from. With rising Covid cases, Mumbai airport on Thursday announced that all flight operations will be moved to its T2 terminal in Sahar from April 21.
Currently, domestic flights are operated out of two terminals of Mumbai airport, T2 and T1 in Vile Parle. When domestic flights restarted after lockdown on May 25 last year, all flight operations at Mumbai airport (domestic and international) operated out of T2. From March 10, IndiGo, AirAsia, GoAir, TruJet and Star Air moved most domestic flights to T1. But with rising Covid cases and government restrictions, the airport decided to go back to last year’s practice.
“All passengers of GoAir, Star Air, Air Asia, TruJet and IndiGo are requested to get in touch with their airlines for further queries,” Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) said. “During challenging times, Mumbai airport has been working closely with stakeholders and regulatory and government bodies to curb spread of the virus. The airport is strictly adhering to guidelines laid down by ministry of civil aviation and government of Maharashtra,” MIAL added.
