The Delhi airport will resume domestic operations from terminal-2 (T2) in phases from October 1, its operator DIAL said today.

The airport has been operating flights only from the T3 terminal since March 23 when flight operations in the country were curtailed drastically due to the Covid pandemic. However, medical evacuation flights and special flights permitted by the aviation regulator DGCA were allowed.

“The resumption of operations at T2 will be with 96 air traffic movements (48 departures and as many arrivals) per day and increase progressively up to 180 by October-end,” said DIAL (Delhi International Airport Limited) in a statement.

From October 1, IndiGo and GoAir will operate all their flights from T2, it said, adding 27 counters — 16 for IndiGo and 11 for GoAir — had been created.

India resumed scheduled domestic passenger flights from May 25, but in a curtailed manner. The airlines are currently allowed to operate not more than 60 per cent of pre-Covid period flights.
