Due to Covid-19, airport operations in Terminals 2 and 4 has been suspended. The airport revealed on its website that operations at Terminal 2 (T2) were suspended for 18 months from May 1, 2020, with the airlines relocated to the remaining terminals. This suspension of operations will allow for the current T2 Expansion works to be accelerated. From 16 May 2020, Terminal 4 (T4) operations will be temporarily suspended given the reduced number of flights operating in the terminal. The airline revealed that T4-based airlines will operate out of Terminals 1 or 3 instead.
