Amid a significant drop in domestic air traffic due to the second wave of coronavirus, the T2 terminal of the Delhi international airport is all set to resume operations from July 22, two months after it was shut down.
The resumption of operations at Delhi international airport's T2 terminal will be operational from July 22 onwards with approximately 200 air traffic movements (100 departures and 100 arrivals) per day.
It will increase up to around 280 movements by August-end, the statement of Delhi airport's operator DIAL stated.
As of now, only the T3 terminal is handling flight operations. Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) stated that "the T2 terminal will resume operations with IndiGo's 2000-2999 series flights and entire operations of GoAir, and is expecting to witness around 25,000 passenger footfall in the initial phase."
Around 27 counter — 11 for GoAir and 16 for IndiGo — will be available for the passengers of respective flights.
The decision to resume T2 operations comes after the Delhi airport started witnessing gradual growth in passenger footfall post relaxation in lockdown since June this year.
T2 terminal started handling flight operations on October 1, 2020. However, it was closed on May 18, 2021, as the number of flights dropped dramatically due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
