IndiGo moves SC against order on shift from T1 to T2

New Delhi: The tussle over IndiGo shifting one-third domestic flights from Delhi Airport’s terminal to Terminal 2 shows no sign of ending. IndiGo has now moved the Supreme Court after the Delhi high court earlier this week dismissed its appeal against Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL)’s decision of shifting some domestic flights of low-cost carriers from T1 to T2.
“Yes, we have filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court on matter related to shifting to Terminal 2 (T2) at Delhi Airport,” said an IndiGo spokesman.
The matter is likely to be heard next week.
DIAL wants to move one-third of flights out of T1 to decongest the terminal and then begin its expansion work. While GoAir (which does not fly international) has already shifted all its domestic flights to T2 at IGI Airport, SpiceJet and IndiGo are yet to move some domestic flights from T1.
The issue over the shifting of terminals has been hanging fire for over a year now and has delayed the expansion of T1, which is handling much more traffic than its built capacity. SpiceJet has made it clear will shift some flights if IndiGo does the same.
