Indigo and Spicejet move to Delhi T2 on 25 March

Low cost carriers Indigo and Spicejet have announced that they will move certain flights to Delhi airport’s terminal 2 on 25 March 2018.

For those unfamiliar with the history, in mid 2017 Delhi airport announced plans to expand terminal 1. To facilitate this expansion the airport needed some of the terminal’s existing traffic to move to terminal 2. The airport originally hoped that one or two airlines would completely move operations to the refurbished terminal. When no airline came forward to do so – the airport directed all the airlines of T1 to shift a third of their flights to T2. Following this Indigo took the airport operator to court and eventually lost.

Read our story on the court ruling and why the airline’s were hesitant to shift.

Both airlines have now announced that they will shift flights to and from certain cities to terminal 2. For Indigo flights moving to terminal 2 are from / to:

  • Amritsar
  • Bagdogra
  • Bangalore
  • Bhubaneshwar
  • Chennai
  • Raipur
  • Srinagar
  • Udaipur
  • Vadodara
  • Visakhapatnam

The airline will prefix the number 2 to all flight numbers operating from terminal 2.

Spicejet will operate terminal 2 flights from / to:

  • Ahmedabad
  • Cochin
  • Goa
  • Gorakhpur
  • Patna
  • Pune
  • Surat

Spicejet will prefix the number 8 to all it’s flight numbers operating out of terminal 2.

Overall the move should benefit passengers, Delhi’s T1 is horribly overcrowded and queues through security tend to be very long. Terminal 2 also has a Plaza Premium Lounge for those of you who use credit card and priority pass access.
