Mumbai, (EMS). Keeping in view the increasing demand for air traffic, a new international airport is being built in Navi Mumbai. The new airport will be located in the heart of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) at Ulwe in Navi Mumbai. To be built in four phases, this airport will be constructed and managed by Adani Airports, one of India’s largest airport operators. Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde yesterday reviewed the work going on there with Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. After an aerial survey of the site, the two leaders were given a detailed presentation about the airport’s features by representatives of the Adani Group.
The Chief Minister said that the new airport would be important not only for Maharashtra but also for the country. He said that this will reduce the burden on Mumbai airport. There are plans to make this airport the most energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable in the world. All vehicles used at the airport will be electric, and charging stations will be installed throughout the airport.
It will also use a large amount of green electricity, a large part of which will be solar power generated on site, the group managing the project said in a statement. The design of the terminal is inspired by the lotus, the national flower of India. The first two phases will be completed by December 2024. Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) is being built over an area of 1160 hectares.
