The recent opening of Terminal 2 of Mumbai’s GVK Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (GVK CSIA) is critical to helping the city retain its fast paced growth and as a key gateway to India.

Rowland Chairman Geoff Rodgers was part of a distinguished delegation that attended the official opening of the iconic Terminal 2 of GVK CSIA, Mumbai in the financial capital in January 2014.

“This is an amazing facility that combines passenger convenience and operational efficiency.

“There is no doubt this modern infrastructure will help GVK CSIA, Mumbai achieve its vision to become one of the world’s best airports,” Geoff said.

The integrated Terminal 2 and cargo complex is now capable of handling 40 million passengers and 1.50 million metric tonnes of cargo annually.

Combining a rich infusion of Indian heritage and cultural character, the terminal draws inspiration from India’s national bird – the peacock. It is also home to the country’s largest public art program, with a 3 km multi-story Art Wall illuminated by skylights, and more than 7,000 pieces of artwork and artefacts from across India.
