BOM | Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport




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 opens in 2013.

EDIT: Renders of the latest design of the terminal can be found in the 13th post of this thread.




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 thrown open around late 2010. 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 2013.


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

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 is also being constructed. This will connect T1A and T1B. Unfortunately no renders of that are available as of now. This terminal will also house a 72 room hotel.

Both the present domestic and international terminals have been given a major facelift over the last 2 years.

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

I'm surprised that they didn't decide to build an entirely new airport somewhere else, seeing as the possibility for future expansions is very limited at the airport's current location, especially when it comes to the construction of new runways.

[email protected], A new airport is in the works like Niknak said above. This new airport will be located across the Thane creek and in Navi Mumbai. According to the latest news reports, tendering for that should be over in March this year. It has managed to clear many legal hurdles expect for the coastal regulatory zone norm which hopefully it should clear soon.

The integrated terminal just got redesigned. Here are some renders from SOM architect's website:



















The terminal specifications and deadline remain the same.

For posterity's sake, here is the very first design for the terminal, inspired by the peacock

Final verdict :: IMpressive work not so visible from the outside!!! After the chaos at the arrivals one month back this was a great encouragement!! Im sure CSIA/MIAL shall be one of the best soon. The slums around the runway stay , but they certainly will be relocated/cleared



slightly old pics of the recently done interiors ....

Stunning job Mumbai!

Just the recent facelift made an immense difference already. I've been to Mumbai for 3 months in 1999/2000 and I remember how horrible was the old terminal. I had a fun time, tho. Have to go visit i guess
