Mumbai airport having no Twitter handle is absurd: Mahesh Bhupathi

India’s legendary tennis professional Mahesh Bhupathi expressed disappointment after he realised that the Mumbai airport — Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport — has no official Twitter handle to disseminate information in such an advanced era.

Calling it ‘absurd’, the 43-year-old tweeted: “Why in this day and age does #mumbaiairport not have a Twitter handle with information? Absurd …”
Bhupathi was the first Indian to win a Grand Slam tournament after he clinched the French Open mixed doubles title with Rika Hiraki in 1997. He’s currently serving as India’s non-playing Davis Cup captain.

Currently, the Mumbai airport is facing troubles due to heavy showers. As many as 56 flights were diverted to different airports till Wednesday morning as the main runway remained affected for the second consecutive day following the heavy rains pouring in the city.
