Introduction to the Mumbai airport – Chhatrapati Sivaji Maharaj International Airport

Previously named Sahar airport, the Mumbai airport is now called Chhatrapati Sivaji Maharaj International Airport. Firstly, I would like to tell you that this is the second busiest airport in India. Not only that but it was also the 14th busiest airport in Asia and also the 41st busiest airport in the world in 2019. It was awarded the World’s best airport at Airport Service Quality awards in 2017. It has received much more awards that are not sufficient to fit into this blog! The airport has two terminals and manages about 950 flights every day. Terminal 1 at Santacruz is used for domestic flights. The 2nd Terminal at Sahar handles both international and domestic flights. Terminal 1 was formerly called the Santacruz airport and then renamed Terminal 1 later. Finally, the airport has taxis that can be used to have a hassle-free ride to your required destination.
