New IGI won’t have domestic-only terminal

New Delhi: IGI Airport, once revamped, is going to score another first in the country with all its terminals having integrated domestic and international operations for seamless transfers.
While Terminal 3, which opened in 2010, is already integrated, the expanded Terminal 1 — slated to be ready by 2020-end — and Terminal 4 — expected to come up in place of the old T2 by 2025 — will also have the facility, the government has decided.
The minister of state for aviation, Jayant Sinha, told TOI that this was part of a plan to create a mega aviation hub in Delhi. "In a few years, the IGI Airport will have three world-class terminals (T3, expanded T1 and a brand new T4) and Delhi will handle 10 crore passengers annually. These terminals will be integrated, providing seamless connectivity between domestic and international flights. All big Indian carriers will fly both within and outside the country, and will be able to offer transfers from the same terminal," he said.
