The arrival work at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport’s T1 terminal for arrival has been completed. This will allow the airport to add more capacity and is a big step towards enhancing the capacity of the airport. But with this, the current arrival terminal, T1C, will be demolished. According to a PTI report, Terminal 1 has a huge space between the baggage belts for ease of movement along with a state-of-the-art meet and greet gallery, along with other facilities.
"The current domestic arrival operations will now move to the newly constructed arrival terminal, which would enable DIAL to take up the demolition of the existing arrival terminal, T1C," GMR Group Dy Managing Director I Prabhakara Rao said in a release.
"Upon completion, the new Terminal 1 would have integrated arrival and departure terminals, a new node building housing retail and F&B outlets, and a pier building comprising 22 contact stands," the release said.
