Mumbai airport's Terminal 2 to get a mall

To help the growing number of passengers better utilise spare time they may have while at the airport, the new integrated terminal, T2 is set to get a mall within the premises, a first for India. According to Mumbai International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (MIAL) officials, the daily footfall at T2 is 7,000 and expected to hit 19,000 once Jet Airways shifts its operations here in March. IndiGo is expected to follow in the second half of the year.
With 35 retail outlets already housed at the airport, 15 more will be added in March. “As passengers travelling to an international destination are required to complete all formalities well in advance, they have a lot of free time on hand before take off,” explained an airline official. Another MIAL official said, “Our aim is to make people aware that they will get to shop for everything at the terminal at the same price as any mall in Mumbai.”
