Indian carrier, Jet Airways will relocate its domestic operations to Terminal 2 at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in Sahar from March 15, 2016. The migration of its domestic operations will lead to the integration of domestic and international flight operations in one terminal, resulting in a significantly enhanced, seamless and hassle free transfer experience for guests.
Flight ‘9W484’ from Mumbai to Kolkata departing at 02:25 is scheduled to be the first Jet Airways domestic flight to operate from T2 on the morning of March 15, 2016. The first arriving flight is scheduled to be ‘9W628’ from Kolkata at 00:10.
The relocation of domestic operations to T2 is part of Jet Airways' strategic commitment to develop Indian airports as hubs, providing greater connectivity on its domestic and international networks. Jet Airways operates over 135 daily flights out of Mumbai to destinations in India and around the world.
The move means that 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 just 90 minutes compared to two hours currently.
"The integration of domestic and international operations at Mumbai’s Terminal 2 will enable Jet Airways to transform Mumbai into a critical international transit hub,” said Gaurang Shetty, Senior Vice President - Commercial, Jet Airways.
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. Terminal 2 is also well connected to the island city by public transport which includes the Mumbai Suburban Railway, Mumbai Metro Rail, Public Transport Buses, Taxis and Auto rickshaws.
