Mumbai (BOM) | Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport

Request to all interested postees to submit new developments / pictures on Mumbai International on this page
_________



Project Information
Mumbai's CSIA airport is currently being upgraded in light of the booming air traffic growth in the Indian aviation. According to the plan, Mumbai's airport will have a new terminal, a new ATC, new taxiways and have its old terminals upgraded.

Designed by SOM architects, a new integrated terminal spread across 4.8mn sq ft will be able to handle 40 mn passengers/annum by the time it is fully functional in 2015.




The design combines an innovative set of swing facilities to optimize utilization of the terminal across the 24-hour operational day.










L&T constructions bagged the $1.4bn contract to construct the terminal in November 2007.





The integrated terminal will be built in 2 phases.
In the first phase, the international terminal T2A will be torn down and will pave the way for the construction of one side of the new terminal. This section is expected to be opened in 2013. In the second phase, T2B+T2C will be torn down to make way for the second and last section of the new terminal. Construction of this section will end in 2015.


Proposed Developments:
  • 11 Rapid Exit Taxiways and 4 Parallel Taxiways to increase the operational efficiency of the cross runway system
  • Expansion of the airport operational area
  • Construction of New ATC Tower
  • Implementation of a model Slum Rehabilitation scheme in line with the State Government Policy
  • Best in class technology for Airport Operations
  • Environmental Up gradation through use of unique,integrated Architectural & Urban Design image, large green areas, indoor & outdoor Landscaped Areas, Rainwater Harvesting and Energy Conservation

Video - slides showing the design features



Key Facilities at the Revamped CSIA:
Code:
Facilities	                    Proposed	Existing
Parking stands for aircraft	     106 	84
Boarding Bridges	             66         18
Check-in counters	             339	182
Car parking                  	     12000	3600



Another new terminal dubbed T1C has also been constructed. It was opened in April 2010 and connects T1A and T1B. This terminal also houses a 72 room hotel.

Design of the new ATC tower that'll be ready in 2012:



It has been designed by HBS architects and according to fellow member KB335ci2, it'll be 98.4m tall. Here's an awesome sketch drawn by him -



Apart from those developments, city-side infrastructure for hotels, business centres, retails, entertainment and leisure are also being developed.

I have tried to go on the GVK site but it is painfully slow and their airport section just doesnt show any consequence.

In the past, some people have posted renderings of famous architect (M.Contractor) with a glass facade but that's about it. Nothing much else has come out after that.

News published on the ACSA Website

http://www.acsa.co.za/home.asp?PID=4...=2&ItemID=2350

SOUTH AFRICAN AND INDIAN CONSORTIUM WINS CONTRACT FOR THE MODERNISATION OF MUMBAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

THE CONSORTIUM TO INVEST APPROXIMATELY US$ 1, 5 BILLION

Following public announcement by the Government of India regarding the outcome of the tender for the modernisation of India’s two main airports in Mumbai and Delhi, the GVK – SA consortium is delighted to confirm that they have been officially informed that they are winners of the Mumbai International Airport bid. The contract is to modernise, operate, develop and manage Mumbai International Airport to achieve world-class standards.

The GVK-SA Consortium comprises well-known Indian infrastructure group GVK and South African companies Airports Company South Africa Limited (“ACSA”) and The Bidvest Group Limited (“Bidvest”). The consortium will partner the Government of India who will retain a 26% shareholding in the airport during the concession period of thirty years with an option for a further thirty years. The consortium interest is split GVK 37%, ACSA 10% and Bidvest 27%.

“From now onwards further engagements will be aimed at finalising the transaction and preparing for the transfer of the airport. ACSA will discharge its responsibilities with humility and the spirit of ubuntu that Africans are renowned for, a principle that is core to our philosophy in doing business. ACSA will roll out its intellectual know-how consisting of policies and procedures, information technology solutions, total quality management, environmental management, maintenance and engineering, safety, service standards, capacity planning and master plans, project management, route and traffic development and stakeholder management,” says ACSA Managing Director Ms Monhla Hlahla.

She further says that in terms of human resource development, ACSA will provide technical exchange programmes as part of its skills transfer initiatives within various functional areas. “However, I must hasten to mention that the learning experience will be a two-way process for ACSA and Mumbai International Airport employees. Through these initiatives ACSA will clearly gain invaluable experience from exposure to the Indian environment. This transaction will therefore enrich all employees and partners involved. Furthermore, it stands to create job opportunities within ACSA as seasoned professionals are posted to Mumbai on an ongoing basis.



“Another area of focus where we believe we will extract value for the Government of India is through non-aeronautical commercial activities as ACSA is particularly well positioned to realise an all-encompassing commercial transformation for Mumbai International Airport. The remarkable growth of commercial revenue has contributed significantly to ACSA’s financial success over the years. It has grown by 364% in the last eight years at a rate nearly three times that of the company’s aeronautical revenues. In the financial year ending 31 March 2005 the commercial division contributed 45,5% of total Group revenues and 76,6% of ACSA’s headline net operating profit, “ Ms Hlahla added.

Ms Hlahla says ACSA’s 10% shareholding in the concessionaire vehicle is a show of commitment to the project and our belief in the project economics of this transaction. Our role will be that of an airport operator which is to rehabilitate, develop, operate and manage the airport on behalf of the concessionaire

For ACSA, this acquisition will significantly enhance the growth of the company over the concession period, especially with the high traffic growth rates forecast in Asia. Mumbai is the commercial capital of India and one of the ten largest cities globally with about 18 million inhabitants. The predicted growth of air traffic in India is enormous borne out by the aircraft orders placed by airlines as well as the increase in living standards in India.

With regard to the selection of GVK as a partner, Ms Hlahla says that after a thorough and comprehensive process GVK was selected as the South African consortium's partner for the bid. “The choice of GVK as a partner was primarily due to their commitment to the project, their experience in Indian infrastructure projects particularly in the power sector, toll-roads and urban infrastructure, their successful partnerships in the past with credible international partners such as the IFC, their ability to raise debt finance in the Indian market, their approach of an equal partnership with the South African consortium and their shared values regarding corporate governance.”

ACSA’s Acting Chairperson Dr Franklin Sonn says the transaction for the modernisation and management of Mumbai International Airport to the GVK-SA is a turning point for ACSA as we are souring to new heights on the international front, that is, we are fast becoming a pre-eminent airport operator of choice based on a number of requests for partnership we receive in respect of various international airport bids.

“I am certain that this is as a direct result of the efforts of all the people of ACSA, who on a daily basis, power the company forward. However, our geographic focus is very clear and we will maintain a deliberate focus on the African continent and will obviously look at opportunities within the Indian Ocean Islands to leverage the Mumbai International Airport opportunity. ACSA will continue to seek opportunities in other regions mainly within the African continent and the Indian Ocean islands,” he added.

No more flights from Santacruz terminal

All flights to take off from sahar airport

GVK's 'master plan' for airport modernisation includes new runway at Sahar, a vertical parking lot outside the airport and a five-star hotel at the AAI quarters

The Hyderabad-based GVK group given the contract for modernising Mumbai's airport plans to operate all domestic flights from Sahar and from the new airport planned at Navi Mumbai. The current domestic terminal at Santacruz will be used exclusively for cargo, according to the new master plan designed by GVK.

The master plan was discussed at a meeting of the group's officials in Mumbai last week after they took charge of the airport from the Airport Authority of India (AAI) on May 4. GVK won the contract for the airport's modernisation in April this year.

A "second and parallel runway" will be constructed at Sahar in order to manage increased traffic once the domestic traffic too is shifted there, a top GVK official told this paper.

"The parallel runway will ensure that two flights can take off at the same time and thus reduce waiting time," the official noted.

At present, nearly 300 flights take off from the domestic airport at Santacruz every day, while more than 250 flights take off from the international airport daily.

Also, in order to better use the four-acre space occupied by the parking lot outside the international airport, a seven-storey vertical parking lot will be built in the same place. The vacant space will be used to build restaurants and cafetarias, officials said. Inside the airport, the revamp will ensure better seating arrangements with lounges, upgraded toilets and enough trolleys, along the lines of world-class airports.

The group also has plans to build a five-star hotel barely ten minutes away from Sahar airport, inside the AAI employees' quarters at Chakala, Andheri (E). The hotel, that will pose competition to numerous other plush hotels around the airport, would aim to maximise profits from the Rs 10,000 crore that the group has invested in the modernisation project, officials said.

The AAI colony has around 1,000 houses. These too will be pulled down and rebuilt on the same premises.

"Work on the hotel will start only after the AAI employees are shifted to the new buildings," a senior AAI officials said.

The GVK is holding several meetings with the AAI to take these plans forward and provide better facilities to passengers.

so what are they going to do with the terminal buildings? renovate them for use as terminals and cargo facilities or demolish them in phases and make totally new ones?

the domestic terminal has excellent access, but i guess there isnt enough area around it to build a large terminal for all flights. good to hear that they are optimistic about the parallel runway though. from the sounds of it though it seems that this will be a stop-gap till the new airport in new bombay is built, which they hinted at. hope that also comes through soon. would be nice to also hear how they are going to organise transport around the airport. just went to the airport side today and they seem to have demolished a lot of slums by the side of the roads and have started widening it

What is going to happen to the terminal which is recently being renovated by hafeez?
Really feel bad that there is not much info bout Mumbai airport modernisation on net compared to so many bout delhi now including new designs etc... mumbai seems to be a neglected one even when considering that international travel demands are higher than Delhi (BA, SIA, all starting double daily flights to mumbai before they start from Del)

its due to its condition with regards to available area and slums. everyone knows the present one can at best be stop-gap till the new airport comes along, while delhi can be a long term investment. with the land available being the same bombay would certainly create as much news and articles as delhi if not more. anyways i am not too bothered by the announcements. the actual work that will be done is more important

1. The parallel runway will probably be a shorter one than the existing primary runway. But it can still be used for takeoffs and by smaller aircraft while the other one is used for landing and for larger aircraft. Not a perfect solution, but better than the present one.

2. I wonder what they plan at the current international terminal in the long term. Demolition and construction of a new terminal (while it is in operation like in the case of Terminal 1B) or renovation/extension of the existing one.

Navi Mumbai airport is yet to be approved. Under the contract for the Mumbai airport, the GVK consortium will have first rights over the new project. It will be offered to other bidders only if GVK refuses. It seems from the report that GVK wants to invest in and run the Navi Mumbai airport as well.

I am not sure what he saw but only a compound wall has been constructed (to demarcate the acquired land) and a board put up on the site, if you can call that 'construction'. There will be no construction till the project is approved. There is a long way to go before even bidding begins.

The reason the master plan for Mumbai is taking more time than in Delhi is because Mumbai is a much tougher airport to upgrade than Delhi. No master plan can be prepared until the plan for removal of encroachments is completed. Unless the planners know what land will be available to them and when, working out a master plan is hard. Delhi does not have that problem - it has more than adequate land in AAI custody for a second runway and for terminals. Hence, the masterplan is also straightforward. Also, the traffic plan outside the airport is much more complicated in Mumbai's case than in Delhi.

1400 crores expenditure for airport slum rehabilitation

Mumbai, April 20: PEOPLE’S representation and a democratic process. That’s what the 85,000-odd slum dwellers encroaching upon 171 acres of airport land are asking for.

And lending them support is former member of Parliament Shabana Azmi’s Nivara Hakk Suraksha Samiti (NHSS), which has drawn a blueprint for their resettlement on a portion of Airports Authority of India (AAI) land itself.

‘‘Rehabilitation cannot be enforced by a central authority,’’ said Azmi, chairperson of NHSS, which helped rehabilitate 13,000 squatters from Sanjay Gandhi National Park to Chandivali—the state wanted to relocate them to far-off Kalyan and Shirdon.

Instead, she added, alliances of ‘‘like-minded organisations’’ should be formed to highlight slum dwellers’ aspirations and work out a rehab package that will be acceptable to all.

Accordingly, on Tuesday, the NHSS will hold a meeting where slum dwellers residing around the airport can discuss the alternatives available. ‘‘Rehabilitation is not merely shifting houses,’’ said Azmi. ‘‘It’s shifting livelihoods, it means resistance and fragmentation.’’

While the GVK-SA consortium is already in talks with the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority and NGO SPARC, clearing slums from airport land is unlikely to be smooth, especially considering how similar attempts in the past have failed. But the mood is hopeful.

‘‘We got a positive response from the Civil Aviation minister and we will take this further,’’ said architect P K Das, who has identified three AAI plots in Santacruz-Vile Parle, Kurla and Andheri to build the three-and four-storey structures. ‘‘Our plan has been worked out to ensure the critical areas are cleared and do not fall in the funnel area of aircraft,’’ he added.

Sunder Padhmukh (36) is also hopeful. ‘‘This is an axe waiting to fall on our heads. It’s best to be prepared and let the government know our demands,’’ said the former teacher, who has used the Right to Information Act and requested for AAI resettlement plans, but to no avail.

AAI employee Baloo Khandgade (34) is not as enthusiastic, though. ‘‘Even if we say what we want, who will hear us? They will move us to Dahisar and I will have to quit my job,’’ he said.

The plan
* Encroached land: 150 acres
* Land for the airport and rehabilitation: 75 acre each
* Houses to be built: 50,000
* Average area per dwelling: 269 sq ft
* Construction rate: Rs 7,000 per sq m
* Construction cost: Rs 875 crore
* Other expenditure: Rs 520 crore
* Total expenditure: Rs 1,395 crore

i wonder how yesterday's supreme court verdict will affect the above. i am guessing the state will have to pay anyways to ensure our lovely politicians corner their votes. and they will be rehabilitated in the same area, as vote banks who keep on shifting are of no use

Clear 10,000 encroachers in 6 months: GVK

Consortium lists plans for airport, wants MMRDA to free land, relocate displaced to transit camps

Chitrangada Choudhury & Lekha Agarwal
Mumbai, May 11: CLEAR over 12 per cent of the 80,000-odd encroachers on Airports Authority of India (AAI) land by year end. And relocate those displaced to transit camps, in six months.

This was what the GVK-ACSA consortium conveyed to Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) Commissioner T Chandra Shekhar late on Thursday evening.

In charge of the Mumbai airport’s modernisation and upgradation, members of the consortium met officials of the MMRDA, the project-implementing authority, and handed over an initial development scheme on its airport reorganisation plans.

Last year, the MMRDA had submitted a resettlement proposal to the Civil Aviation Ministry. But things have changed now.

‘‘The consortium plans to change the airport layout. The current domestic terminal will be converted to a dedicated cargo complex while the international terminal will cater to all passenger traffic,’’ said a top MMRDA official. ‘‘This changes the dynamics.’’

Chandra Shekhar said the modalities would only be worked out once the consortium returned with a ‘‘more detailed plan’’. But for now, building a new runway is the immediate priority.

While the MMRDA will be responsible for resettling the project-affected people—the numbers are likely to be much higher than MMRDA estimates—architect Mukesh Mehta has been appointed to conduct the baseline socio-economic survey that will determine who’s eligible for rehabilitation.

Mehta, who was the brain behind the Dharavi redevelopment proposal, will be expected to complete the survey in three months. ‘‘We have to rehabilitate the slum dwellers in a manner that’s sustainable and enhances their life, a view that GVK fully shares,’’ said Mehta.

The resettlement will be in accordance with the state’s rehabilitation policy, which means the cut-off date will be January 1, 2000.

Meanwhile, the joint venture company and MMRDA are yet to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU). Last month, the MoU was put on hold after Reliance approached the Supreme Court claiming that the process of awarding the contracts for the Delhi and Mumbai airports was illegal and arbitrary.

The matter will come up for hearing on June 1, after which the MoU is likely to be signed.

Mumbai Airport

Now that it is almost confirmed the domestic terminal is going to be converted for Cargo and the current international would be expanded to host domestic and international, does any one have the blue print of the entire airport?

I remember seeing a layout on Indian Aviation thread a while ago showing various terminals, offices and slums..
