Mumbai Airport & Other Airports to Be Shut Down for Maintenance

Mumbai Airport Main Runway Shut on 9th & 10th April List of Cancelled and Rescheduled Air India & Jet Airways Flights

Mumbai Airport Main Runway To Remain Shut on April 9 & 10

"We did not take any booking for this time slot for at least a week", an official of the low-priced carrier said, adding that the same flight would remain cancelled on Tuesday.

"Passengers are requested to connect with their respective airlines", it added.

The Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), which runs the city airport, has announced the closure of the main runway (O9/27) between 11 am and 5 pm for Monday and Tuesday.

While Jet Airways cancelled a total of 70 flights, including 54 domestic services, Air India decided not to operate 34 flights.

Mumbai, the financial capital of the country, is one of the busiest airports in India and sees traffic of more than 800 flights each day.

"All affected airlines are advised to cancel or reschedule their flights during the closure period on 9 and 10 April 2018", said a note sent by the airport to airlines, as reported by Times of India. Delhi airport, which has three parallel runways, handled 5.7 crore passengers in the same year (21.6 percent of the air traffic).

Jet Airways also rescheduled 70 flights, including 17 worldwide ones, while Air India diverted four flights.

On Monday and Tuesday, (April 9 & 10), fliers travelling in and out of Mumbai Airport, will have to face inconvenience, owing to the pre-monsoon maintenance work on the main runway from 11am to 5pm. SpiceJet too has cancelled 18 flights. "There is a negligible impact of the temporary runway closure on our operations".

Are you scheduled to fly in to or out of Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport over the next two days? The airport, which has two crossing runways, sees about 970 flights land and take off every day, according to an airport official. The airport has already crossed its installed capacity (48 million passengers), well above the installed capacity of 40 million passengers this fiscal.
