Commercial Operations will commence at Delhi Airport's brand new Domestic Departure Terminal - By Delhi International Airport (P) Limited

Indira Gandhi International Airport' new domestic departure terminal 1D (T1D) will commence commercial operations on April 19, 2009, the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) announced. With the commissioning of the terminal, airlines would shift their operations to it in a phased manner.

The company said the terminal had several new facilities which would improve the travel experience of domestic passengers flying out of Delhi. The terminal will raise the domestic departure capacity of the airport to ten million passengers per annum. The terminal has a modern four-level in-line baggage handling system to eliminate X-raying of baggage before check-in. It has 72 check-in counters and 14 security channels to ensure quick processing. There is a spacious security hold area with extensive seating and other passenger amenities such as lounges, food and beverage outlets and retail facilities.

The terminal will have a special contact zone for passengers with special needs and unaccompanied minors. The baggage handling area is on a separate level, allowing greater space for passengers. DIAL as well as various airlines, ground handlers and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) have been involved in extensive Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT) trials to familiarise with the new features, layout and operating procedures of the new terminal. Trials are also being done to ensure that all components and processes at the terminal are checked and re-checked to ensure smooth transit for passengers when the terminal opens for them. Over 30 such trial sessions have been carried out in terminal 1D over a period of four months. All operations staff are being exposed to the new working environment, baggage handling and IT systems and the processes required for day-to-day as well as fall-back operations, the statement said.

More than 11,000 trial passengers were checked-in and boarded during trial operations while the baggage handling and in-line screening system handled more than 35,000 pieces of baggage. The main focus of trial operations is on simulation of system failures and implementation of contingency procedures to ensure operational readiness in dealing with unforeseen events and irregularities at any given point in time. In addition to the transfer of airlines, the traffic routing at the airport's domestic terminal would also undergo a change.

DIAL is a joint venture company; comprising the Bangalore-based infrastructure major GMR Group, the Airports Authority of India, Fraport, Malaysian Airport and India Development Fund. DIAL is working towards the modernization and restructuring of the Delhi Airport. The project being developed by DIAL under Public Private Partnership has been given the mandate to finance, design, build, operate and maintain the Delhi Airport for 30 years with an option to extend it by another 30 years.
