Mumbai : Along with the highest passenger movement and number of flights, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) in this city recorded 4.46 million passengers in November, according to officials on Monday.

With 4.46 million passengers passing through CSMIA, there was a 13% increase in travelers from November 2022, when there were 3.90 million.

In addition, there were 28,679 air traffic movements (ATMs) last month, with over 7,000 of those being international. This represents a 12% increase over November 2022’s 25,375 ATMs.

This November also saw New Delhi, Bengaluru, and Chennai remaining the top favourite destinations for the CSMIA, while Dubai, London, and Abu Dhabi were the most preferred international choices of the passengers.

The busy Mumbai-New Delhi route notched a huge traffic of 557,393 passengers last month.

Among the airlines, IndiGo, Vistara and Air India led in the domestic market share with IndiGo serving over 1.60 million passengers in November 2023. On the international sectors, IndiGo, Air India and Emirates emerged as the leaders even as the CSMIA recently included new destinations like Entebbe (Uganda), Baku (Azerbaijan), Bangkok, and Toronto.

In November, the CSMIA earned two more feathers in its cap – highest-ever single-day flight record of 1,032 ATMs on November 11 and handling 167,132 passengers on a single day on November 25.
