Mumbai airport’s main runway to remain shut for 6 hours for 2 days


Mumbai: Flight operations at the Mumbai airport are likely to be affected for two days as the private aerodrome operator on Monday announced the closure of the main runway for six hours daily for pre-monsoon maintenance work. The closure of the main runway, 09/27, is expected to put passengers at inconvenience in view of the suspension of a good number of services by various airlines during the period, sources said. The Mumbai airport is the primary base of Jet Airways and a bulk of its operations, both domestic and international, are carried out from here.
