Mar 14, 2016: Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) will house the entire domestic operations of Jet Airways at Terminal 2 with effect from March 15, 2016.

Jet Airways' migration will lead to the integration of its domestic and international flight operations in one terminal, resulting in a significantly enhanced, seamless and hassle-free transfer experience for passengers.

Jet Airways’ domestic operations at T2 will commence with the arrival of flight 9W 628 from Kolkata to Mumbai at 00:10 am and the departure of flight 9W 484 from Mumbai to Kolkata at 02:25 am.

The relocation from Terminal 1B is part of a phase-wise transition planned for Terminal 2. Air India and Vistara had already started domestic operations from Terminal 2 in the year 2015.

Terminal 2 has undergone AOR (Airport Operational Readiness) procedures over the past couple of weeks to enable the smooth transition of Jet Airways’ operations.

 It has also completed a comprehensive security sweep as well as the final stages of ORAT (Operational Readiness Activation and Transition). As part of the ORAT process, GVK Mumbai International Airport Private Limited (MIAL) conducted familiarization processes for the ground handling staff, security and other employees to help them get acquainted with the protocols to be followed for 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 heart of the city by public transportation including the Mumbai Suburban Railway, Mumbai Metro Rail, public transport buses, taxis and auto rickshaws.
