Mumbai Airport boosts capacity, expands security check area at T2

New Delhi, July 6, 2023

The completion of the expansion and upgradation of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Security Checkpoint Area (SCP) at T2 Terminal of Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) has created additional space to boost capacity, resulting in lower wait time and increased convenience for the passengers.

Union Minister for Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya M Scindia had directed MIAL to complete the work in three phases. Phase 1 was completed on March 31 and Phase 2 on June 30. This has created additional space to increase the capacity of the terminal and help reduce congestion.

Post the COVID-19 pandemic, the country has seen a huge surge in daily air passenger traffic. In response to this demand, MIAL in consultation with the Ministry of Civil Aviation and BCAS has outlined a comprehensive plan to augment capacity and upgrade the first-of-its-kind Integrated SCP facilities for enhancing the passenger experience and ease of travel at Terminal 2 of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA), Mumbai.

This strategic initiative is designed to enhance processing capacity, reduce wait times and provide a seamless yet secure travel experience to passengers. To further enhance the experience, CSMIA has deployed ushers to guide passengers and provided priority lanes for senior citizens, passengers with children/ infants, and specially-abled passengers.

Commenting on the progress made by MIAL, Scindia said, “Passenger contentment has always been our priority and I am delighted that private airport operators are fully collaborative in our mandate to make air travel easy and hassle-free for all. MIAL has done a great job by creating this additional space which will increase capacity and provide convenience to the passengers.”
