DIAL’s current proposal unworkable: IndiGo

New Delhi: Budget passenger carrier IndiGo has termed the proposal of Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), the operator of IGIA here, to shift part of several airlines’ operations from Terminal 1D, as “unworkable”.
The airport operator had proposed to shift part of IndiGo, GoAir and SpiceJet’s operations to Terminal 2 (T2) from Terminal 1D (T1D) which will soon enter into its next phase of planned expansion.
Currently, the terminal is being used by low cost carriers (LCC) IndiGo, GoAir and SpiceJet.
The proposal entailed that their flight operations — namely Delhi-Kolkata, Delhi-Bangalore and Delhi-Mumbai — be shifted to T2.
IndiGo’s comments on DIAL’s proposal came after the airport operator wrote to the airline asking it to furnish plans for shifting a part of its operations.
According to a communication from IndiGo to DIAL dated August 31, 2017, the budget passenger carrier called for a “mutually acceptable solution” to resolve the impasse.
