Following a successful end to the Winter campaign, Mumbai Airport in India is looking to trail further success as we go further into the Summer.
Using data from RadarBox.com, we will take a look at the airport’s data and see where they are compared to pre-COVID periods.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Mumbai Airport’s Strong Numbers…
For June 13-20, Mumbai Airport handled 838 movements, which is an increase of 5.81% compared to the same period last year.
This means that the airport is only 19 movements from achieving pre-COVID levels for the Summer period.
Towards the end of the Winter season, the airport has managed to achieve this, but the next step is to produce a form of consistency all-year round with this.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from the airport:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|May 16-23||800 movements||768 movements||863 movements||+12.37%|
|May 23-30||818 movements||801 movements||892 movements||+11.36%|
|May 30-June 6||836 movements||800 movements||885 movements||+10.63%|
|June 6-13||841 movements||794 movements||873 movements||+9.95%|
What we can see from the data is that Mumbai Airport is in some periods exceeding pre-COVID levels in the early stage of the Summer, but such numbers are beginning to dip.
As mentioned, the layer of consistency will be important for the airport to achieve.
With the likes of IndiGo and Air India ordering a huge number of aircraft, that means new routes will be introduced, meaning that the airport’s numbers will be able to remain consistently higher than 2019’s levels.
Either way, it will be interesting to wait and see what happens in the future of Mumbai Airport.
