Jet Airways to shift domestic operations to Mumbai Airport's new terminal on March 15
Jet Airways will relocate its domestic operations to the new integrated Terminal 2 at Mumbai airport on March 15, it said Tuesday.
"Jet Airways’ migration of domestic operations to T2 will lead to the integration of domestic and international flight operations in one terminal," the airline said in a statement.
Jet operates over 135 daily flights out of Mumbai to local and overseas destinations.
Jet said the move to the new terminal will improve operational efficiencies, by allowing the airline to transition a greater number of domestic flyers onto its international network and vice-versa.
Passengers will now be able to transfer from domestic to international flights within 75 minutes compared to an hour and 45 minutes currently, while international to domestic transfers will take 90 minutes compared to two hours currently, the airline said.
Jet's passengers will now enter the new terminal through gate no 7. The airline has 41 dedicated counters at the check-in area. Counters for first and business class passengers on domestic or international flights will be located at an area marked ‘P’. Passengers travelling in economy class on domestic flights can proceed to island ‘K’, while those travelling Economy on international flights can proceed to island ‘L’ for check-in.
In addition, island ‘M’ will have exclusive check-in counters for passengers having JetPrivilege Platinum, Gold and Silver cards.
Spread across 4.4 million square feet, the integrated Terminal 2 has 60 departure check-in counters and 80 arrival immigration counters capable of handling 40 million passengers annually.
