Indira Gandhi Airport's T3 to complete facilities in November

26 Oct 2010

The new Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) has set a new date for the migration of domestic flight operations from Terminal 1.

The move was originally set for the end of October, but is now scheduled to take place on November 14, 2010. It involves carriers such as Jet Airways, Air India and Kingfisher among others.

Once completed, passengers are expected to be able to seamlessly connect between international and domestic flights.

IGIA has been plagued with a variety of problems since it opened in July, the most serious of which has been power outages. Airport officials have admitted that the facility lacks capacity to run operations befitting a state-of-the-art aviation hub. On October 20, IGIA operations were hobbled by an eight-hour power cut that affected air conditioning and other activities.
