As many as 903 scheduled, 59 non-scheduled, 8 charter, 31 freighter and 3 military flights were handled by the airport.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) handled a record 1,004 aircraft movements in a day, betting its earlier record of 1,003 flight movements in 24 hours in June this year.

The feat was achieved in Udaipur in Rajasthan, in the wake of the pre-wedding bash of India’s richest person Mukesh Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani.

According to the source, a host of politicians, corporate honchos and Bollywood stars flew in private jets from Mumbai to attend the celebrations that started on Friday.

A Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) spokesperson confirmed that the airport handled a record 1,004 arrivals and departures on Saturday, but did not divulge the factors leading to the surge in traffic movement.

He added that, “Mumbai airport handled a record 1,004 flights in a single day on Saturday. The earlier best for the airport was 1,003 arrivals and departures which was achieved on June 5.” As many as 903 scheduled, 59 non-scheduled, 8 charter, 31 freighter and 3 military flights were handled by the airport.

The airport witnessed increased charter aircraft operations on Saturday due to the pre-marriage celebrations of Isha Ambani, who is set to marry Piramal scion Anand Piramal on Wednesday at Antilia, the residence of the Mukesh Ambani family in south Mumbai, said the source.
