Construction works at Navi Mumbai International Airport 60% completed

Easing congestion at Mumbai’s existing Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport which operates at capacity, construction of the new Navi Mumbai International Airport is more than 60% complete with passenger operations scheduled to begin in 2025.

Developed in phases with three interconnected passenger terminals (in addition to general aviation and cargo terminals), Navi Mumbai International airport will initially serve 20 million passengers a year, rising to 90 million when all phases are complete. The organic forms and curvature of the terminals’ columns and roofs are informed by Lotus blossom, the national flower of India prominent throughout the country’s ancient art, architecture and literature.

Designed as a multi-modal transport hub and interchange with local, regional and national rail networks, the Navi Mumbai International Airport will be served by the Navi Mubai Metro Line 1, as well as the Mumbai Metro Line 8 and Mumbai-Hyderabad High-Speed Rail Line that are currently in development and planning.
