Indigo goes to HC against move to T2
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.
