Adani Group – which operates Mumbai airport – said it has "planned a runway closure on October 18 from 11 am to 5 pm, for repair and maintenance work on both its runways".

This is part of its annual post-monsoon preventive maintenance exercise, it added.

The facility operator will carry out major work such as runway edge lights for runway 14/32, upgradation of AGL (aeronautical ground lights ), among others during the closure period.

Meanwhile, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) had said that it has already rescheduled flights for the runway closure period to ensure smooth completion of the maintenance work.
