Mumbai airport’s main runway shut, may take 48 hours to resume operations


The Mumbai international airport authorities on Tuesday said that it could take up to 48 hours to resume flight operations on the main runway after it was closed on Monday night following the overshooting of a SpiceJet aircraft while landing amid heavy rain.

A 150-metre ramp is being prepared to push the aircraft out of the grassy area which is still stuck at the end of the runway.

Air India’s disabled aircraft recovery kit has been mobilised for the preparations, Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) spokesperson informed.

As the main runway is out of use, the second runway has been made operational. The authorities have urged passengers to expect delay in flight operations. Read More
