While the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) had halted all flight operations in the domestic terminal earlier during the pandemic, it had recently started operations in the domestic airport. Airlines such as GoAir, AirAsia, and Indigo had started operating in the domestic airport once again. However, due to the recent surge in the COVID cases the airport has decided to once again consolidate its flight operations to Terminal 2 from April 21.

Domestic Passenger Terminal 1 Had Reopened On March 10

The domestic passenger terminal T-1 airport had reopened only on March 10 for regular flight operations after keeping it shut for nearly a year. However, the operations are now shut again. CSMIA said in a statement. “In light of the latest developments in the ongoing pandemic situation, CSMIA has decided to re-consolidate all domestic passenger flights currently operating via Terminal 1. With effect from April 21, the airport will be conducting all international as well as domestic flight operations through its Terminal 2.”
