Domestic flights commissioned under Go Air, Star Air, Air Asia and Trujet will soon take off from the CSMIA T-1.
The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) in Mumbai will re-start domestic services from Terminal-1, starting March 10. Since the lockdown, all domestic and international services to and from Mumbai are being managed from the international Terminal-2 due to COVID-19 induced travel restrictions. However, that is about to change from March 10, after which domestic flights commissioned under Indigo, Go Air, Star Air, Air Asia and Trujet will take off from the CSMIA T-1, read reports.
4 airlines to start flight operations from T-1
Mumbai International Airport has announced that it will segregate services to resume its domestic turf, Terminal-1 and kickstart the services of about 4 airlines from March 10. These include Go Air, Star Air, Air Asia and Trujet. While Terminal-1 also happens to be the home base of Indigo, most of its services will be commissioned from Terminal 2 while base flights will run the domestic runway, read reports.
Additionally, economic airline Go Air also announced on Thursday that it will shift bases to Terminal 1 and the relocation is set to commence on March 1. Go Air also stated that it will adhere to prime hygiene standards to safeguard the health and safety of its employees and customers. Besides, all international flights will continue to take off from Terminal 2.
Resumption of Terminal to uphold the norms of social distancing
Mumbai International T-2 was conducting consolidated operations for both international and domestic flights until now. However, keeping the COVID situation in mind, CSMIA authorities have decided to resume operated from Terminal-1 to stagger crowds and maintain social distancing here. Additionally, all services such as F&B outlets, retail stores and access to lounges will be made available for the people, like before. To make the shift more seamless, all modes of transport, to and from will also be at travellers' disposal.
