Mumbai: With a view to safeguarding health and safety of passengers in Covid-19 times, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) will resume domestic operations from Terminal 1 (T1) from March 10. The operations at T1 had been suspended after the nationwide lockdown in March 2020.

From midnight of March 10, four airlines - Go Air, Star Air, Air Asia, and Trujet will resume their domestic operation from Terminal 1. In the case of Indigo, while most of its flight operations will be managed from Terminal 2, the base flights will operate through Terminal 1.

All passengers travelling through Terminal 1, will be able to access lounge and F&B outlets like before.

Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) said that the call for resumption of operations has been taken to safeguard the health and safety of all passengers travelling via the Airport.

“Upholding the safety of the passengers, the resumption of services via T1 is a step further in ensuring that social distancing is strictly followed,” said a MIAL spokesperson.

The terminal will also promote social distancing through measures such as the re-arrangement of seating, installation of plexiglass to minimise face-to-face interactions amongst others at the terminal.
