Budget carrier SpiceJet will shift its entire Mumbai operations to Terminal 2 of the city's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport from 22nd September 2019, the airline said. "Effective 22 September 2019 the entire airline operation of SpiceJet will shift to Terminal 2 of Mumbai Airport," the airline tweeted. The transition is being proactively planned and implemented by the airline with the active support of Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) to enhance passenger convenience and improve connectivity of international and domestic passengers, SpiceJet said.
The consolidation of operations will help SpiceJet efficiently service thousands of passengers travelling with SpiceJet to and from Mumbai Airport across both its domestic and international networks by consolidating operations under one terminal. It will lead to better synergies and cut down costs substantially for the airline, the budget carrier noted.
SpiceJet has sent mails, SMS notifications, social media updates well in advance informing passengers of this move. However, in case, there are any customers who are still not aware of this move, SpiceJet has made special arrangements for passengers to be dropped at T2.
In Delhi, SpiceJet and IndiGo have started domestic operations from Terminal 3 (T3) of Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport from 5th September. This was done in order to enhance the overall infrastructure of Terminal (T2), which is expected to undergo major expansion and renovation to accommodate more passengers with the rising traffic.
Meanwhile, SpiceJet will launch 12 new domestic flights effective from the first week of October 2019. The latest flight additions comes after a massive domestic sector expansion by the airline. Starting from 1 April, SpiceJet has announced 142 new flights which include 78 connecting Mumbai, 30 connecting Delhi and 12 flights in between Mumbai and Delhi.
