Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport has announced plans to reopen its Terminal 1 domestic terminal for passengers from October 20 midnight.

Officials say AirAsia India, Star Air, GoFirst and TruJet will resume operations from here. But some IndiGo flights will start operations from October 31.

The Mumbai airport halted all flight services from Terminal 1 soon after the country was hit by the deadly second wave of coronavirus, beginning mid-April. Since then, only Terminal 2 was operational for international connectivity.

Terminal 1 will serve about 156 flights while Terminal 2 will cater to 396 flights on an almost daily basis.

After vaccination campaigns intensified in the country and passengers regained their confidence in air travel, CSMIA decided to reopen its Terminal 1 for domestic flight operations. The announcement was made by the private airport operator in a statement on Monday.

Even during the first wave, CSMIA suspended services to T1 for about seven months and only Terminal 2 was operational for international flights. The statement further said that the opening of T1 will also help in maintaining social distancing and ensuring the safety of passengers.
