National carrier Air India will relocate its domestic operations in Mumbai from Terminal 1A to Terminal 2 from October 1, 2015. Passengers who want to catch domestic flights will now have to go to T2, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Sahar.
“With this move, Air India passengers will have the advantage of a smooth and seamless transition with easy connectivity, between domestic and international sectors, all from the same terminal,” the airline said.
The shifting is a part of the phase-wise transition that was planned for T2.
Air India’s domestic operations at T2 will commence with the departure of flight AI 627 from Mumbai to Nagpur at 5.55 am and the arrival of AI 695 from Hyderabad to Mumbai at 7.45 am. On an average, Air India has around 45 departures and an equal number of arrivals, ex-Mumbai.
The state-of-the-art T2 is a world-class integrated terminal designed to cater to 40 million passengers per year, and displays 3 kms of art work and illustrations of over 100 artists. Currently, Air India operates its international flights and domestic leg of international flights, from T2.
