New Delhi, Aug 22: Indira Gandhi International (IGI) will get another integrated terminal like T3, under the facility’s expansion plans.
The Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), announced about its advanced plan.
As per the operator of IGI airport, the budget passenger carriers’ departure terminal T1D and terminal T1C will be merged into one and expanded to accommodate 40 million passengers per annum.
“This (merged) terminal will be like another T3. We are going to repeat another T3,” I. Prabhakara Rao, CEO, DIAL, said during a briefing on the expansion plans.
The expansion plan also encompasses a new pier building which will be built as an extension of the merged terminals with 22 aerobridges and 15 bus gates.
However, to execute the plan, the operator would need to shift some traffic catered by the current T1D to T2 terminal.
“The masterplan will be implemented in three modular phases — 3A (2018-21), 3B (2021-25) and phase 4 (2026 onwards),” the company said in a statement.
