HC reserves decision on DIAL order to shift airlines to T2

The Delhi High Court today reserved its verdict on low cost carrier IndiGoBSE 1.00 %'s plea against the decision of Delhi airport operator DIAL to partially shift its operations along with that of two other airlines, SpiceJetBSE 1.85 % and GoAir, from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2.
"Judgement reserved," Justice A K Chawla said after hearing arguments on behalf of IndiGo, the Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) and the Centre.
In its plea, the airline has challenged DIAL's communication of October 21, asking the three air carriers to shift their flights to and from Delhi to Mumbai, Kolkata and Bengaluru, to Terminal 2 (T2) from January 4, 2018.

All other flights of the airlines shall continue to operate from Terminal 1 (T1), DIAL had said in its communication.

IndiGo has challenged the DIAL's decision on the ground that partial shifting of its operations would inconvenience passengers, especially those on hopping flights emanating or ending at those sectors, as T1 and T2 are not connected.
