Once we have the letter in hand, we will commence the process of opening the new terminal to passengers. However, an exact date for the commencement cannot be confirmed at this stage.”
According to the AAI, flights from other airlines will continue to operate from the existing terminal, while Air India and Air India Express will conduct test flights to ensure a smooth passenger experience at the new terminal.
