Mumbai: Flight operations at Mumbai airport halted for six hours on October 18

MUMBAI, Sept. 22 (PTI) Flight operations at Mumbai airport will remain suspended for six hours on October 18 for runway maintenance work, which is likely to hit passengers hard, the airport's personal operator said Thursday. Mumbai Airport has two intersecting runways, the main runway 9/27 and the minor runway 14/32, which handle about 800 flights per day, making it the second busiest after the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi.

The Adani Group has stated that it has “managed the closure of a runway on October 18 from 11am to 5pm, for renovation and maintenance work on all of its runways,” as part of its annual preventive action after the monsoon train maintenance.

Throughout the shutdown, the capable operator will perform key work resembling the runway edge lights for Runway 14/32, the AGL (Aviation Ground Lights) upgrade, among others.

CSMIA (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Global Airport) reported that in collaboration with key stakeholders, it has already rescheduled flights for the runway closing period to ensure clean completion of maintenance occupancy.
