All About Mumbai Airport

Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport

(IATA: BOM, ICAO: VABB), formerly Sahar International Airport, is an airport in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India. RIAF Santacruz was a defence airfield of the Royal Indian Airforce RIAF during World War 2 and was entrusted in the 1950s (after India gained independence from Britain) to the Public Works Department, and subsequently the Civil Aviation Ministry of the Government of India. It was named after the suburb of Santacruz where the airfield was located. Santacruz Airport long remained the name well into the 1980s until the new international terminal went into operation at nearby Andheri. Even today, the domestic terminals 1-A and 1-B are commonly known as Santacruz airport.
The airport, spread notionally over an operational area of 1450 acres (but actually as low as 1000 acres), serves as India's biggest international and domestic hub. Besides, it serves the metropolitan area of the city of Mumbai and the terminals are physically located in the suburbs of Santacruz and Sahar. The airport was formerly known as Sahar International Airport as it was located in the then village of Sahar in the suburb of Andheri. It was recently renamed after the 17th century Maratha Emperor, Chhatrapati Shivaji Raje Bhonsle.

The New Phase
In line with its vision of making the Mumbai Airport, Mumbai International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (MIAL), the joint venture between GVK-SA consortium and THE Airports Authority of India, has a master plan for Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
The master plan has been designed to expand and upgrade the infrastructure at CSIA to cater to traffic of 40 million passengers and one million tonnes of cargo annually. It encapsulates a blueprint for a major transformation of the airport by 2010.
The project cost till 2010 will be Rs. 5,200 crore, which is to be financed through a debt-equity mix of 80:20. The debt is being tied up with Indian institutions led by UTI Bank and IDBI Bank.'
The implementation of the master plan will be in two main stages — the Interim Phase to be completed by 2008 and the Phase I to be completed by 2010. The Interim Phase envisages refurbishing Terminal 2B, revamp of Terminal 1A, setting up of a temporary cargo facilities and upgradation of airside runway facilities and multi-level car parks.
In Phase I, a brand new terminal building (T2) will come up at Sahar to cater to international and domestic passengers, a dedicated link from the Western Express Highway and building of new cargo facilities.
