Mumbai International Airport

Where is Mumbai Airport?  

Spread across 7 islands, Mumbai is immense: it is the fifth most populous city in the world. Once known as Bombay, the city has long been an important seaport on the Arabian Sea.

Today, Mumbai is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India: Bollywood lives here!

Mumbai International Airport (IATA: BOM, ICAO: VABB), officially Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, also referred to as Chhatrapati Shivaji Airport - or Chhatrapati Airport for short - formerly Sahar International Airport, is most commonly referred to as simply Mumbai Airport. The airport is officially named after Chhatrapati Shivaji Bhosle, the 17th century Maratha Emperor.

Mumbai Airport's IATA code, BOM, is derived from the city's former name: Bombay. Speaking of abbreviations, locals, and even the airport itself, refer to the airport as CSIA or CSIA Airport (after Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport).

In 2014/2015, Mumbai Airport served 37,694,824 passengers, making it the 2nd busiest of India's airports, after New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). The 3rd and 4th busiest are Bangalore Kempegowda International Airport (BLR) and Chennai International Airport (MAA).

Dozens of airlines serve Mumbai Airport, including Air Arabia, Air China, Air France, Air India (secondary hub), British, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Egypt, GoAir (primary hub), IndiGo (secondary hub), Jet Airways (primary hub), JetLite (secondary hub), Kenya, Korean, Lufthansa, Pakistan, Qatar, Royal Jordanian, South African, SpiceJet (secondary hub), SriLankan, Swiss, Thai, Turkish, United and Virgin Atlantic.
