19 Apr : Passengers of budget carrier Indigo’s flight to Guwahati will be the first lot to depart from the newly built domestic departure terminal of the Indira Gandhi International Airport at New Delhi on Sunday.
The Indigo flight (6E 201) would take off for Guwahati at 5.35 a.m. with 150 passengers from the new terminal, a spokesperson of Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), the airport’s operator and developer, said on Saturday.
Airlines have taken a slew of measures to provide a hassle-free ride to the passengers. The airlines would shift its operation to the newly built terminal building, constructed at a cost of Rs 500 crore by DIAL, after the last flight takes off.
"Passengers will have a great experience while departing from the new terminal on Sunday. This has great new facilities which would give them a hassle free experience," IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh said.
According to sources, passengers departing from the new terminal may have to shell out about Rs 40 as a cost for Common User Terminal Equipment (CUTE) to be used by the airlines for automated check-in.
