Mumbai, January 2, 2017: GVK MIAL, the company that administers Mumbai’s Domestic and International Airport, has renamed the airport’s domestic Terminal – 1B to Terminal 1 with effect from 1st January 2017. The decision to rename the domestic terminal 1B was taken to help in easy identification of the terminal and to ensure hassle-free transit for air travellers.
Currently SpiceJet, Indigo & GoAir operate from Terminal 1. Previously, Air India and GoAir operated from 1-A, while Jet Airways, SpiceJet and Indigo operated from 1-B. Post the opening of the iconic Terminal 2 (T2) in January 2014, Air India and Jet Airways have shifted their operations to the new terminal, while Vistara made its new beginning from T2. The shifting of Air India and Jet Airways to Terminal 2 has helped make transit between international and domestic flights convenient for transfer passengers, thereby saving on time.
The 33.5 km metro line from Colaba-Bandra to SEEPZ with proposed stations at Sahar road, Domestic airport and Terminal T2 is expected to further enhance connectivity and facilitate quicker and smoother transit from one terminal to another.
