Delhi Airport's Terminal 2 Will be Used For Flights to Smaller Cities

To ensure the existing terminals at Delhi airport are not burdened, most of the flights coming under Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) will operate from the unused Terminal 2 for operations.

Delhi has two operational terminals -- T1 and T3. While T1 is operating beyond its capacity, T3 too is congested due to increase in number of flights.

Under RCS, Delhi will be connected to small destinations such as Bhatinda, Shimla, Agra, Bikaner, Gwalior, Ludhiana, Pathankot and Jalandhar.

"Most of these destinations will be connected by Air India subsidiary Alliance air. They will have the option to operate from T3, but other airlines will have to operate from T2," said an official from Ministry of Civil Aviation.
