Departures to be fully operational at Chennai’s new terminal soon

Airport authorities have set a target of mid-November to make the departure hall in the new international terminal of Chennai airport completely operational.

Though the new international terminal was inaugurated late in January this year, it was commissioned only in the first week of August. During the last two months, airlines have been moving into the terminal in a phased manner. Most of the airlines, including IndiGo, Lufthansa, Jet Airways, Emirates, Gulf Air and Air Asia, have shifted to the new terminal.

“Some of the airlines, including Air India and Tiger Airways, are yet to shift to the new terminal. We gave them time till mid-November to move in. They had asked us for some more facilities including some additional rooms and we have provided them with their requirements,” said an official of Airports Authority of India (AAI).
