Mumbai Airport creates record, handles 1003 flight movements in 24 hours

June 07, 2018: Mumbai’s GVK Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), the company that manages the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport achieved yet another milestone by handling the maximum number of flights in a 24-hour timeframe. On June 5, 2018, the Mumbai airport handled 1003 takeoffs and landings breaking its own record of handling 988 flight movements in a day. It is the highest traffic in a single day at any airport in India till date.

The Mumbai airport is in the league of the busiest single-runway airports around the world, handling over 1000 flights per day. Due to heavy rainfall the aircrafts were diverted to the nearby airports and were later accommodated immediately as the rains stopped, which lead to increase in the flight movements.

“GVK MIAL’s efforts have constantly been focused towards placing CSIA amongst the world's best airports. The evolution brought through CSIA with respect to services, functionality and operations personifies into a dynamic travel companion that its stakeholders cherish,” stated MIAL in a press release.
