CW Projects - Navi Mumbai International Airport - NMIA

Sep 28, 2020 00:00 IST

Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) is a proposed greenfield international airport under construction on the National Highway 4B near Panvel. It is at a distance of approximately 35km from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) at a cost of ₹95 Billion Features The new airport will be equipped with not only modern amenities to ease domestic and international travel, but also facilities to transport cargo. The terminal building will hold 10 million passengers a year upon the completion of the first phase, 25 million a year in the second phase, and 45 and 60 million a year in the third and fourth phases respectively. Moreover, NMIA is bound to ease traffic congestion at CSIA, which has almost reached saturation point and has little scope for expansion. The airport is being prepared to carry new large aircrafts, including Airbus A380 and Boeing B747-8, which comply with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Aerodrome Code 4F. Furthermore, NMIA is accessible by road via an enhanced highway network, metro rail, suburban railways and hovercraft service. Facilities that are being prepared for the airport include cargo terminal buildings, two parallel runways for independent operations, taxiways, an apron area, cargo complex, aircraft maintenance site, and long-term aircraft parking. NMIA will also comprise of additional infrastructural complexes such as car parking, a power supply system, and water treatment plant.
