Project - Navi Mumbai International Airport

NMIA is one of the world’s largest ”greenfield”state-of-the-art international airports, currently proposed for development, offering world-class facilities for passengers, cargo, aircrafts and airlines.

The proposed second airport for Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) is located at Navi Mumbai for several reasons. Prominent among them is the fact that Navi Mumbai is expected to cater for the future growth in population, business and commercial activities of MMR.

The availability of excellent physical and social infrastructure coupled with an environment-friendly site with least resettlement and rehabilitation makes the Navi Mumbai Airport project both technically feasible and financially viable.

The Airport master plan will be developed in modules, operated and managed to internationally recognised standards. The design and development of high quality facilities will provide enhanced service to passengers, airlines and other customers.
