The new domestic departure terminal at IGI airport here on Wednesday became fully operational with all major carriers shifting their operations to the swanky new building, which is yet to get a "No Objection Certificate" from fire department.

"With the remaining three airlines -- Jet, Jetlite and SpiceJet -- shifting their operations to new terminal building from the intervening night of May 12-13 it has become fully operational," a DIAL spokesperson said.

With the shifting of the three airlines, now all the major airlines -- Kingfisher, Kingfisher Red, Jet, Jetlite, Indigo and SpiceJet would be operating from the new terminal, christened T1D.

Jet, Jetlite and SpiceJet have shifted their operations almost a month after T1D was opened for operations on April 19 with the shifting of Kingfisher, Kingfisher Red and Indigo.

Other airlines, like Air India (IC), GoAir and MDLR would be operating from terminal 1A.

The T1D would be handling about 20,000 passengers every day but it is yet to the get a "No Objection Certificate (NOC)" from the fire department.

"We have not given the NOC because we have not carried out the checks of fire fighting system as it has not been fully installed at every part of the terminal," said R C Sharma, Chief Fire Officer of Delhi Fire Service.
