IndiGo says no to partial shift to T2

New Delhi: IndiGo on Monday firmly told Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) that it will not shift one-third of its domestic flights from Terminal 1 to T2, as decided by the airport operator.
The airline is likely to take legal action if it is forced to move its flights to and from Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata to T2 from the month-end, or stopped from continuing to operate them from T1.
In fact, India's largest low cost carrier has opposed DIAL's proposal to announce splitting of domestic flights between T1 and T2 as it will cause confusion among passengers.
"As we have mentioned in our previous correspondence, we are not agreeable to shifting only a 'part' of our operations from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 of IGI airport with effect from October 29, 2017, as this will result in widespread confusion and cause grave inconvenience to our passengers, who already hold confirmed bookings and are under the assumption that their flights will depart from Terminal 1," IndiGo wrote to DIAL on Monday.
"We reserve our rights to make a detailed representation on this matter and take any other action that we may consider necessary in the interest of our passengers," IndiGo told DIAL, hinting at moving court if forced to shift flights to T2 or not being allowed to operate them from T1 after October 29.
