IndiGo challenges Delhi airport directive to shift operations to Terminal 2

IndiGo challenges Delhi airport directive to shift operations to Terminal 2

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' global operations. Both carriers have expressed unhappiness, with IndiGo filing a petition before Delhi High Court.

The Gurgaon-based airline also said that it has raised the issue of birds and wildlife endangering the safety of the passengers as well as the flight operations, with the Visakhapatnam airport authorities.

"IndiGo has filed a writ petition (along with an interim application for injunction/stay) in the Delhi High Court, challenging DIAL's decision to shift a part of our operations from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 of IGI Airport Delhi", IndiGo said in a statement.

IndiGo has moved court against an order by the Delhi airport operator asking the airline to partially shift operations to Terminal 2 from Terminal 1, a civil aviation ministry official said on Tuesday.

Delhi Airport had asked airlines operating from Terminal 1 to shift one-third of their flights to Terminal 2 to enable it to expand the terminal to meet growing passenger numbers.

Earnings On Deck For The Home Depot, Inc
Home Depot stores cater to do-it-yourselfers, as well as home improvement, construction and building maintenance professionals. Home Depot had recorded $377 million in sales of storm-recovery merchandise in 2012 after Hurricanes Irene and Sandy.

It is likely to come up for hearing tomorrow.

Earlier, the deadline for three low-priced carriers - IndiGo, GoAir and SpiceJet which now operate from T1D - to shift some of their flight operations to T2 was October-end. The airlines also issued pictures of the fix work at the tarmac.

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.

A DIAL spokesperson declined to comment "as the matter is subjudice".
