Mumbai, July 22 : Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis on Friday announced that the new international airport at the Navi Mumbai airport is scheduled to commence its operations next year.

During the monsoon session of the legislative assembly, he also shared some significant updates regarding airport developments in the state and said that unfortunately, the works at Nanded and Latur airports have come to a halt due to non-payment of dues by the assigned company. To address this, the opinion of the Advocate General (AG) will be sought, and efforts will be made to expedite the pending work.

He also said that for efficient airport management, the government plans to establish a dedicated authority and a decision on this matter is expected to be taken within the next three months. Giving details of the Shirdi Airport Terminal, deputy chief minister said that construction is underway for a terminal building at Shirdi airport, with an estimated cost of ₹650 crore. These initiatives aim to enhance air connectivity and infrastructure in Maharashtra, contributing to the state’s overall growth and development, Fadnavis added.
