Navi Mumbai International Airport to be operation by 2019: Fadnavis

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has said the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport will be operational by 2019.

“As all the environmental-related permissions are cleared for the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport, this project will be operational by 2019,” Fadnavis posted on Twitter this morning.

The project will be built on public-private partnership (PPP) on a land of around 1,160 hectares, out of which 592 hectares have been acquired and all clearances will be done by January 2015, he said.

After the completion of first phase, 10 million people are expected to use it annually. The final phase will have a capacity to accommodate 60 million passengers annually, the Chief Minister said.

“Seeing the rise in passengers, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport will also be extended to accommodate 40 million passengers, annually,” Fadnavis further tweeted.
