Owing to maintenance operations, Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International (BOM) runway would be shut down on April 23 and April 30 for 5 hours from 11.30 am and 4.30 pm. Airlines operating during these timings are rescheduled and passengers would be duly informed through various media. Approximately 120 flights would be affected during these two days.

Currently, the Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International (BOM) Ltd has been carrying out the reconstruction of the main runway. Besides, edge lights and centreline lights of the runways are also being shifted and realigned. The runway intersection will be closed on two Saturdays (April 23 and 30) for the repairs.

Mumbai’s main runway is 11,000 feet long and secondary is over 9,500 feet long. The intersection is close to the middle of the two runways. During the repair to this part, the runways length is halved. Hence, only smaller planes like ATRs or Boeing 737–700 or turboprops would be able to alight. Navigation aids like Instrument Landing System will not be available and visibility requirement for flight operations, too, will be higher than normal, hence it was decided to reschedule all the flights during the period.

To note the rescheduled flight timings passengers are requested to contact the respective airline call centers or Mumbai international airport helpdesk.
