IGI Airport's T3 to eventually open up for full fledged passenger operations

Accordingly, DIAL, which manages and operates IGIA may temporarily shut-down Terminal-2 and the T-1D.

"DIAL is assessing the quantum of domestic demand along with the Airlines, once the suspension of operations is lifted," DIAL's Chief Executive Videh Kumar Jaipuriar told IANS.

"Various options, including the potential of consolidating terminal operations, are being evaluated depending on the airline requirements as well as government notifications that maybe issued for time to time."

At present, T2 is exclusively being used by budget airlines such as SpiceJet, IndiGo and GoAir.

On the other hand, construction work was getting underway at T1 to further develop the termonal into an integrated domestic cum international gateway.

"Even during the ongoing suspension of commercial operations due to the lockdown, Delhi Airport continues to handle 25-30 operations per day - primarily cargo and evacuation flights. Also, as of now, there are no immediate plans to defer any ongoing expansion works," Jaipuriar said.
