"The country had been waiting since the last 60 years to see Mumbai getting connected to Navi Mumbai, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is today bringing to reality the dreams of people," he said, referring to the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) inaugurated by the PM on Friday.

"The Navi Mumbai international airport will start its operations in November or December this year. This airport's first flight will land in November or December. The airport will pave the way for big development of Navi Mumbai," the Civil Aviation Minister said

"In the next 10 to 15 years, there will be at least 10 cities which will have two airports each," Scindia said.
