Delhi airport:Airlines asked to 'discuss' shifting of terminal

New Delhi: The civil aviation ministry has asked three budget airlines to decide among themselves on the issue of shifting their operations to Terminal 2 at the Delhi airport.
To ease congestion in the wake of rising passenger numbers, there is a proposal to shift flight operations from Terminal 1 (T1) to Terminal 2 (T2) but there is no consensus between the airlines concerned and the aerodrome operator.
At a stakeholders' meeting held last week, IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir were told that the Ministry would not "force upon" them any decision on shifting operations to another terminal, a source said.
According to the source, the airlines would have to come up with a solution and one month's time has been given to them.
IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir operate flights from T1.
