Mumbai Airport ‘Mega Block’: Flight Operations to Remain Affected Till March 30; Airfares Surge


The flight operations to and from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in Mumbai will remain affected beginning on Thursday, February 7, till March 30, for three days a week. The airport ‘mega block’ is being carried out for the re-carpeting of the intersection between the two runways.

The shutting of Mumbai airport thrice a week for runway repairs has also resulted in a surge in airfares especially on the Delhi-Mumbai sector. “The fares are up by 30 per cent compared to the non-closure days. We would advise travellers to plan their travel well in advance to avoid paying these extremely high fares,” Sharat Dhall, COO (B2C) Yatra, an online travel agency, had said earlier.

The Mumbai airport will remain shut between 11 AM and 5 PM for three days in a week – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – for a duration of over one month (from February 7 to March 30). Read More
