New Mumbai airport terminal finally opens


$2 billion T2 terminal is more than a year late

A new international airport terminal in Mumbai has capacity for up to 40 million passengers a year. More than a year late and over budget, the $2 billion T2 terminal will rival New Delhi airport when it officially opens later this month.

Mumbai’s airport is notorious for being chaotic thanks to a combination of poor facilities and delays. Its owner, Indian conglomerate GVK, hopes this will now change.

It is also hoped the new structure will gain international recognition, putting it on a par with other airport buildings including Heathrow’s Terminal 5 and Singapore’s Changi.

India is expected to welcome around 100 million international visitors a year by 2023, double the current figures, once T2 opens.
