Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - METRO -

DIAL had asked air­lines op­er­at­ing from T1 to shift one-third of their flights to T2 to en­able it to ex­pand the ter­mi­nal to meet grow­ing pas­sen­ger num­bers. Indigo claims that shift­ing par­tially to T2 will re­sult in con­fu­sion and cause in­con­ve­nience to pas­sen­gers.

“Indigo has filed a writ pe­ti­tion (along with an in­terim ap­pli­ca­tion for in­junc­tion/stay) in the Delhi High Court, chal­leng­ing DIAL’S de­ci­sion to shift a part of our op­er­a­tions from Ter­mi­nal 1 to Ter­mi­nal 2 of IGI Air­port Delhi,” Indigo said in a state­ment. The writ is likely to come up for hear­ing on Wed­nes­day, Indigo said.

“The writ pe­ti­tion has been filed un­der Ar­ti­cle 226 of the Con­sti­tu­tion of In­dia to chal­lenge the ar­bi­trary, dis­crim­i­na­tory, il­le­gal and mala fide de­ci­sion by DIAL on the strength of as­sumed au­thor­ity given to it by MOCA (min­istry of civil avi­a­tion) to per­mit one air­line (Go Air) to shift its en­tire op­er­a­tions from T1 to T2 with ef­fect from Oc­to­ber 29,” the Indigo state­ment said. A Delhi Air­port spokesman con­firmed the move but de­clined com­ment as the mat­ter is sub­ju­dice.
