Terminal 1A at Mumbai has been the centre of questions ever since they had to throw out Kingfisher Airlines because of the non-payment of dues. When they eventually made the bold move, there was an abnormality, where Terminal 1B was handling 4 airlines (Indigo, Jet/JetKonnect, SpiceJet and GoAir), while Terminal 1A just had Air India. Here is how terminal 1A looked like:

However, GoAir has moved its operations from Terminal 1B to Terminal 1A with effect from July 1, 2013. The airline currently operates 360 movements per week from the city. An aisle of check-in counters at Terminal 1A is now be available for GoAir passengers. The airline has also move its ticketing office to the new premise.

It seems some other airlines were also invited to move to Terminal 1A, however, they were reluctant to move ops due to their bigger size of operations and an international operation as well, which was synchronised with Terminal 1B as of now. GoAir is now going to be operating along with Air India from Terminal 1A.

    @theflyingsikh if I remember correctly, only Kingfisher started from 1A. I might be wrong though. :)

    When GoAir first began they used terminal 1A out of Bombay. I remember flying G8 for the first time Bom-Goi from 1A. Later on they moved to 1B for which they even ran an advertisement campaign sometime in Sep 2007 which is the time they actually moved.
