NEW DELHI : Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport will reopen terminal one (T1) for domestic flights from 20 October, it said on Monday.
The terminal has been closed for operations since April because of a steep decline in travel parameters such as number of travellers and number of flights taking off and landing at the airport during the second covid wave.
“T1 will cater to approximately 156 flights daily, while approximately 396 flights will ply from T2," the airport said.
“The resumption of services via Terminal 1 will help maintain social distancing measures, uphold passenger safety, and ensure a seamless transit," it said.
Airlines such as GoFirst, Star Air, Air Asia and TruJet will resume domestic operations from T1 from 20 October. IndiGo will resume select flights from T1 with most of its flights still operating from T2.
“All passengers travelling through T1 will be able to enjoy the luxuries of the lounges and the world-class retail and food and beverage experiences, adhering to a high level of safety and hygiene. Further, all modes of transport to and from the terminal will be made available for the convenience of the passengers, as before," the airport said.
“The airport will ensure that measures such as stringent screening of passengers and personnel, regular sanitization and disinfection, mandatory wearing of face masks and other PPE will be implemented at T1," it added.
