We are here: CSIA Mumbai
The year 2006 witnessed a momentous change for the airports in India with the privatization
of Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA). In January 2006, GVK
led consortium, comprising of Airports Company South Africa and Bidvest won the
bid to manage and operate CSIA. To accomplish this task, Mumbai International Airport
Pvt. Ltd. (MIAL) was formed by GVK led consortium (74%) and Airports Authority of
Modernization and redevelopment of CSIA is a reflection of India’s rapid growth.
Being in the financial capital and a key gateway of the country, redevelopment of
CSIA holds great significance in aiding the city to retain its fast paced growth.
In order to achieve a global standard, MIAL has partnered with well-known international
experts for airport design and operations. CSIA handled traffic of 29.07 million
passengers and more than 650,000 tonnes of cargo in 2011. With the addition
of the new integrated terminal and the cargo complex, CSIA will be capable of handling
40 million passengers and 1 million Metric tonnes of cargo annually.
As a part of the redevelopment plans, GVK is also working with the local authorities
to improve access to CSIA. While existing roads are being upgraded, the construction
of a dedicated six lane, elevated road connecting the new terminal with the main
arterial Western Express Highway has commenced. A link is also planned between the
closest station of the metro project and the new terminal.
The transformation of CSIA, a brown-field project, is a one-of-its-kind unique infrastructural
project in the world, unlike any other airport development projects. With a vision
to become one of the world’s best airports, MIAL has been continuously and consistently
upgrading CSIA to an airport that delights its guests by offering best in class
comfort and convenience.
