MUMBAI: AAI-GVK group-run Mumbai airport continued to have curtailed operations for the second day on Tuesday operating a total of 44 flights with 22 departures and an equal number of arrivals.
The Mumbai International Airport Ltd while announcing resumption of domestic passenger services from May 25 had said on Sunday that it would be operating a total of 50 flights to begin with, including 25 departures and equal number of arrivals.
Budget carrier IndiGo had both first departures and arrivals from the Mumbai airport on day two as well, the MIAL said in a statement.
“The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) saw on Tuesday 22 departure and 22 arrivals. The three flights which were cancelled earlier, were also operated later, carrying a total of 4,224 passengers — 3,114 departing ones and rest 1,110 arriving passengers,” MIAL said in a statement.
MIAL in an earlier statement had said three flights were cancelled of the 44 flights scheduled for the day.
As many as six airlines operated these flights to 13 various destinations, it said.
IndiGo’s flight to Ranchi was the first one to depart at 6.30 am from Mumbai airport while its flight from Lucknow was the first aircraft to arrive at 8.20 am on Tuesday, said the airport operator.
The highest passenger load capacity was seen on the Delhi route departing out of Mumbai airport, MIAL added.
The Mumbai airport had operated 47 flights to 14 destinations on Monday, when Indian airlines resumed commercial passenger services after two months of Covid-19 lockdown.
