NEWDELHI: IndiGo, In­dia’s big­gest air­line by mar­ket share, ap­proached the Delhi high court on Novem­ber 4, chal­leng­ing a Delhi In­ter­na­tional Air­port Pvt. Ltd (DIAL) de­ci­sion re­lat­ing to shift­ing a part of the air­line’s op­er­a­tions to a new ter­mi­nal.

IndiGo, run by In­ter­globe Avi­a­tion Ltd, does not want to split its op­er­a­tions and move a part of them to the Indira Gandhi In­ter­na­tional (IGI) Air­port)’s newly opened Ter­mi­nal 2 from Ter­mi­nal 1. IndiGo wants a quash­ing of di­rec­tions set out in DIAL’s let­ters ask­ing it to shift ‘part’ of its flights. It is also seek­ing a quash­ing of the au­thor­ity vested in DIAL by the avi­a­tion min­istry’s let­ter dated 14 July to de­cide a suit­able course of ac­tion in shift­ing of air­line op­er­a­tions.

It wants an in­junc­tion/stay, re­strict­ing DIAL from shift­ing its op­er­a­tions to T2 un­til the mat­ter is fi­nally de­cided by the courts.

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.
