Indigo-passenger faceoff CEO Aditya Ghosh writes mail to employees to boost morale Requests keeping calm

On the issue of shifting of operations by airlines from T1 to T2, Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey said the ministry is still working out a common ground.

According to a document, the petition has been filed by IndiGo and Enakshi Jha, a shareholder of IndiGo, with the respondents being the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA), DIAL, AAI (Airports Authority of India) and DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation).

As there was no time to abort the take-off, the pilot went ahead, but returned shortly to assess any possible damage to the Airbus plane as a precaution, the IndiGo said in a statement today.

Delhi airport has three terminals, of which T1 is used by low fare carriers for domestic operations and terminal-3 (T3) by full service carriers, foreign airlines and LCCs' global operations.

DIAL has asked IndiGo and SpiceJet to shift some flight operations-Delhi to Mumbai, Kolkata and Bengaluru-to T2 by October 29 for rennovation work at T1.

The shifting of flight operations to T2 is a prerequisite for the commencement of T1's expansion plan. In two letters in August, one in September and the latest last week, it said the move would cause "inconvenience to passengers, increase costs and be anti-competitive" and refused to move a third of its operations.

The Gurgaon-based airline said it has raised the issue of birds and wildlife endangering the safety of the passengers as well as the flight operations with the Visakhapatnam airport authorities. T1 handled 24 million passengers in 2016-17, four million more than its official annual capacity. The runway of the airport is about 3km.O Naresh Kumar, vice-president of AP Air Travellers Association (APATA), said he visited the airport on Monday evening soon after hearing about the incident.
