All domestic flights to and from Mumbai will operate from Terminal 2, beginning April 21. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) had shifted low cost airlines and a few IndiGo flights to Terminal 1 only in March. Due to the imposition of Section 144 in the state, Air Asia, GoAir , Star Air, TruJet and few flights of IndiGo will now be operating from T2 instead of T1.
Confirming the same, CSMIA spokesperson said, “In the light of the latest developments in the ongoing pandemic situation, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) has decided to re-consolidate all domestic passenger flights currently operating via Terminal 1. With effect from April 21, 2021, CSMIA will be conducting all international as well as domestic flight operations through its iconic advanced Terminal 2. All passengers of GoAir, Star Air, Air Asia, TruJet and IndiGo are requested to get in touch with the respective airlines for further queries.”

From March 10, the airport resumed operations from T1 which meant GoAir, Star Air, Air Asia and Trujet began their operations from Terminal 1.
