Mumbai International Airport to resume Terminal 1 operations from 20 October 2021
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport is set to relaunch its Terminal One for domestic flights, whilst maintaining social distancing and COVID-19 safety requirements for passengers.
With the nationwide vaccination drive and increase in passenger confidence in air travel, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) is re-opening its Terminal One (T1) for domestic flight operations starting 20 October 2021. Terminal One will cater to approximately 156 flights daily, while approximately 396 flights will fly from Terminal Two (T2). After brief resumption in March 2021, operations at T1 were suspended temporarily and were consolidated through T2. The resumption of services via T1 will help maintain social distancing measures, uphold passenger safety, and ensure a seamless transit.
From midnight 20 October 2021, GoFirst, Star Air, Air Asia and TruJet will resume all its domestic operations from Terminal One. While IndiGo’s select flights will resume from 31 October 2021 with most of its flight operating from T2 and base flights will operate out of T1. All passengers travelling through Terminal One, will be able to enjoy the luxuries of the lounges and the world class retail and F&B experiences, adhering to a high level of safety and hygiene standards. Further, all modes of transport to and from will be made available for the convenience of the passengers, as before. CSMIA’s T1 will host 12 registration desks and 12 testing booths, across arrivals and departures, where passengers can opt to undergo the RT-PCR test at the airport.
The airport will ensure that measures such as: stringent screening of passengers and personnel, regular sanitisation and disinfection, mandatory compliance of wearing face masks and other necessary PPE will be implemented at T1. The terminal will also promote social distancing through measures such as the re-arrangement of seating, installation of plexi-glass to minimise face-to-face interactions amongst others at the terminal. The revival of operations at T1 enhances the ability of the airport to offer passengers a seamless transit, while simultaneously enhancing its ability to ensure safety for its passengers and personnel. Passengers are requested to connect with their respective airlines for any further queries.
