The private airport operator said on Friday that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) will resume domestic flight operations from Terminal-1.
Mumbai airport has two terminals T1 and T2. Terminal-1 caters to domestic passengers and Terminal-2 also has international services in addition to domestic operations of some Indian airlines.
Prior to the epidemic, some airlines were operating their domestic operations from T1.
However, after the resumption of domestic commercial passenger services at the end of last year, after almost two months of shutdown in the wake of the epidemic, flight services were being operated only from T2.
A release said that CSMIA is reopening its Terminal 1 for domestic flight operations from 10 March.
The airport said that from midnight to March 10, GoAir, Star Air, Air Asia and Trujet will resume all their domestic operations from Terminal 1.
In the case of IndiGo, while most of its flight operations will be managed from Terminal 2, base flights will operate through Terminal 1.
Since the arrival of the nationwide lockdown in March 2020, operations on the T1 were temporarily suspended and consolidated through Terminal 2 for the convenience of passengers and stakeholders.
Keeping passenger safety in mind, resuming services via T1 is a step forward in ensuring that social disturbances are strictly followed, the couple added.
