Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai – Terminal 2.

 

Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai, is an exploration of passion, philosophy and innovative technology.  Ranked as the second busiest airport of India, the new state-of-the –art terminal T2 has been built by GVK led consortium spread in 1400 acres. The four storey terminal is estimated to cater 40 million passengers annually.
