Mumbai airport's stunning Terminal 2

Last updated on: March 22, 2013 10:29 IST

The swanky Terminal 2 at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai is all set to open in September this year.

With a vision of making the airport one of the best in the world, the Terminal 2, or T2 has been built with a state-of-the-art four-level terminal with an area of over 4,39,000 sq. mts.

The new terminal will have new taxiways and apron areas for aircraft parking designed to cater to 40 million passengers annually.

The Mumbai International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (MIAL), a joint venture between the GVK led consortium (74%) and Airports Authority of India (26%), got the mandate to modernise and upgrade Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in February 2006.

Re: Mumbai airport's stunning Terminal 2

But how much safe is Mumbai Airport for the Aircrafts ?

Check this image. A stone is enough to bring this aircraft down..

Re: Mumbai airport's stunning Terminal 2

you need a strong arm with a good aim to hit the propellor.but terrorists can just launch a grenade. btw the slums around the airport are majorly inhaibited by none other than bangladeshis.

Ahmedabad's international airport smells like a railway station and toilets are not worthy of mention.

I think Delhi's new terminal 3 is one of the best indian airports.. well organized, clean toilets stocked with toilet papers & no phenyl smell, very good architectue.. so far in the last 3 years I have visited 5 times and except the staff everything was good.

Why should any foreigner come to India?
The immigration clerks are generally pissed off and shouting or missing from their stations.

Ground staff lets people break lines.. One Jap said to me after 3 mofos broke line despite me cursing them and complaining to the officials.. "The airport is so well designed like any in the world but people have no sense.. it will take a few years".

Why does the ground staff of Airlines grill you like they are Custom or Immigration officials? I am okay with it now since I know they will ask me 10 times.. same typical questions.. who packed my bags? whom were the bags with before coming to airport? Did I take any packed objects from anybody?

that is just their routine checkup. They are trying to eliminate the danger of poor innocent people being trapped in drug racket. Otherwise they know it very well too if one's bag is full of drugs s/he is not gonna say "somebody I dont know packed my bags and they were left alone outside for couple of hours"

aur tu ab Japs chapton ki bhi sun ne laga woh bhi India ke against.

bol deta tokya was dirtier than this and people dont even know how to talk. specially in English.

It's scheduled to open this September. You should check it out then.

I don't know if it will be up to international standards, but, for sure, it will be an improvement over the typical airport run solely by the Airports Authority of India (with no pvt sector participation).
