Passengers of Japan Airlines (JAL) will have to check in for their international flights at the new Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi Airport in New Delhi from July 30, 2010.
The Japanese carrier will relocate its flight operations from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3, where the the airline will have its dedicated check-in counters.
The new terminal at Indira Gandhi Airport spans nearly 57ha and was completed in just over three years. It is part of the ongoing airport refurbishment programme across the country (see news).
From August 27, several Indian carriers such as Kingfisher Airlines, Jet Airways and Jetlite will start domestic flights from Terminal 3, enabling passengers to smoothly transfer between international and domestic flights. Around this time, eligible JAL passengers will be able to access Kingfisher’s lounge at the new terminal, which will offer wireless internet connection, shower facilities and business centre services to name a few. An interim lounge will be provided for the use of JAL passengers while Kingfisher is yet to complete its transfer to Terminal 3.
JAL operates three weekly flights from Tokyo Narita to New Delhi using a Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
