The Navi Mumbai International Airport, according to Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani, is operating on time. By December 2024, the airport will be operationally ready and transitioned, according to Adani. At the annual general meeting (AGM) of the global corporation, Gautam Adani provided the report to shareholders. 

The Copper Smelter and the Navi Mumbai Airport are two of the many ongoing projects that are important. Both are running on time. In his speech to the Adani Group AGM, Adani stated that the Navi Mumbai Airport is getting ready for operational readiness and airport transition by December 2024. 

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj international airport (CSMIA) in Mumbai, which is now overcrowded, has been replaced with the Navi Mumbai international airport. The Navi Mumbai airport, which would be built in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), will cost around Rs 16,700 crore to build.

The airport will be built on a land area of more than 1,160 acres in four phases, the first two of which will be finished by December 2024. The lotus, India's national flower, will serve as the design inspiration for the Navi Mumbai airport. The Adani Group and the City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra (CIDCO) have partnered on the airport project. 

Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, stated in June of this year that the airport will have good access to the city via a variety of forms of transportation, including the metro and Mumbai Trans Harbour Link. 

By 2032, this airport will be able to accommodate 90 million passengers and 2.5 million tonnes (MT) of cargo. The airport will only utilise electric vehicles, and its operations will be heavily reliant on locally produced green electricity from solar power. 

Through Adani Airport Holdings, which now maintains the international airports in Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Mangaluru, Jaipur, Guwahati, Thiruvananthapuram, and Mumbai, Adani Enterprises manages its airports.
