New Delhi, Feb 24: Low-cost carrier IndiGo on Saturday said it accepts the Supreme Court’s decision regarding partial shifting of operations to Terminal 2 of IGI airport here and would implement the order in the coming weeks.
The apex court on Friday rejected the airline’s plea challenging a Delhi High Court order to shift one-third of its Terminal 1 operations to Terminal 2 of Indira Gandhi International Airport.
However, the airline said it had maintained consistently “in all forums that shifting of only a part of its operations from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 would not only cause grave inconvenience and confusion amongst passengers, it will also reduce flight options for passengers connecting through Delhi”.
“IndiGo deferentially accepts the decision of the apex court and shall implement the order in the coming weeks, in close coordination with Delhi International Airport Limited,” the airline said in a statement.
By virtue of the said order, IndiGo would be one of the only two airlines to operate from three different terminals of one airport, it said.
