Connecting flight from Mumbai to Colombo advise

Flying Jetairways from Heathrow to Colombo but have a connecting Jetairways flight from Mumbai to Colombo, transiting for 1.5 hr. I need advise for the following:

1) What Terminal do Heathrow flights (international) land at Mumbai airport? (Is it T2?)

2) Is Sri Lanka considered international in Mumbai if so what terminal does Jetairways use fly to Colombo from Mumbai?(is it T2?)

3) I’m, hoping to check luggage through from Heathrow to Colombo. Upon arriving in Mumbai airport, would I still have to go through immigration before connecting to my flight or can I just go straight to my connecting flight?

Can you advise, thank you.

Hi.

Firstly and obviously flying to srilanka is considered international flight.

You dont have to clear immigration if you have checked in through.

It is T2 terminal.

Have a happy and safe journey

Thank you SO much for such a speedy reply.i really appreciate it. You have eased my mind.

Have a great rest of the weekend:)

Ps. Can I trouble one more time.... does one have to fill in a landing card on arrival or does one not have to as I’ve got a connecting flight? Thanks.

No landing card needed. Just follow the signs for international connections, you have 1 security checkpoint (with hopefully short lines) and you're in departure hall.

All the best,
