Mumbai Airports' car parking charges sky-high, need immediate reduction, demands NGO

Mumbai-based Watchdog Foundation has written to the Airport Authority of India (AAI) complaining about the high car parking charges at the Mumbai Airport. The letter states that the Mumbai International Airport Ltd. managed by the Adani Group is charging very high parking charges forcing cab aggregators and others to park in the vicinity of roads leading to the airports.

According to the Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) website, the parking charges for 30 min for a 4-wheeler is Rs 160 and if one chooses to make use of premium parking then the charges are Rs 250.

This is an issue for most of the frequent fliers that drive themselves to the airport as they have to pay a huge amount just for parking their car at the Mumbai airport. The Mumbai International airport charges Rs 1,000 if you park your vehicles at the airport for a day.

The increased cost also affects the fliers that would like to book Ola or Uber because they have to wait in long queues as cabs decline to come to the airport fearing the high parking charges.

The cabs that are willing to pick up customers from the airport instead of waiting at the airport park on roads leading to the airport causing a lot of traffic in the surrounding areas.
