Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport

Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is the second busiest airport in India and was ranked 48th busiest airport in the world by Airports Council International in 2013. The airport has five operating terminals spread over an operational area of 2,900 acres. In 2011, the airport was ranked the third-best in the world in the 25–40 million passengers category by Airports Council International.

VDA provided vertical transportation consulting services for the 4,500,000 sq. ft., terminal building. The project includes services for elevators, escalators and moving walkways.  The master plan was designed to expand and upgrade the infrastructure at CSIA to accommodate 40 million passengers and one million metric tons of cargo. The new airport facility will house a total of 106 aircraft, 51 boarding bridges, 316 check-in counters and parking spaces for 12,000 vehicles. 

“Our goal was to define a series of models that could be applied throughout the project to enhance efficiency and speed” - Rick Sayah
