Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (Marathi: छ्त्रपती शिवाजी अंतरराष्ट्रीय विमानतळ) formerly Sahar International Airport, is the primary airport in Mumbai, India, and the country's second busiest airport.
The airport, with its four terminals, spreads over an operational area of 1,450 acres (5.9 km2), is India's and South Asia's largest and most important aviation hub, handling more than 25 million passengers and 533,593 tonnes of cargo. It along with Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport, handles more than half of the air traffic in South Asia.Formerly called Sahar (international) Airport and Santa Cruz (domestic) Airport, the two airports were merged and renamed after the 17th century Maratha Emperor, Chhatrapati Shivaji Bhosle, to Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. In February 2006, Mumbai International Airport Limited, a consortium of GVK Industries Ltd., Airports Company South Africa and Bidvest, was appointed to carry out the modernisation of Mumbai Airport.
Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport has won numerous awards including "Best Airport in India" and Best Airport in Public-Private Partnership. However, it was ranked by Forbes as the world's most delayed with an on time arrival rate of 50% in 2008.
