Kinjarapu, the newly elected civil aviation minister, stated that planes departing after 2 p.m. will use the airport’s other two facilities, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3.

“I personally visited the Delhi T1 terminal after it collapsed this morning. Our initial goal was to safely evacuate all people from the terminal.
