IndiGo challenges Delhi airport directive to shift operations to Terminal 2

39;How many did you hit today?': Indigo passenger to airline staff

IndiGo has moved court against Delhi airport operator DIAL for its decision asking the airline to partially shift operations to Terminal 2, a senior civil aviation ministry official said today. The runway of the airport is about 3km.O Naresh Kumar, vice-president of AP Air Travellers Association (APATA), said he visited the airport on Monday evening soon after hearing about the incident.

Delhi airport has three terminals, of which T1 is used by low fare carriers for domestic operations and terminal-3 (T3) by full service carriers, foreign airlines and LCCs' worldwide operations. It is also seeking a quashing of the authority vested in Delhi Airport by the aviation ministry's letter dated 14 July to decide a suitable course of action in shifting of airline operations. "We are still working out a common ground. otherwise the matter is in court".

IndiGo Airlines on Tuesday issued a statement and said that by adhering to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) a major tragedy was averted.

The DIAL had earlier directed the airline to shift a part of its flight operations from Terminal-1 to Terminal-2 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).

"At no point, safety of the passengers was compromised", said Indigo.

The incident has been reported to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

DIAL has asked IndiGo and SpiceJet to shift some flight operations-Delhi to Mumbai, Kolkata and Bengaluru-to T2 by October 29 for rennovation work at T1.

The airline further claimed that DIAL's decision could destroy IndiGo's business adding that the directions are completely "arbitrary" and do not have any nexus with the object sought to be achieved i.e., decongestion.
