Starting today, runway of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport will be closed for eight hours during day time. As a result flights between 10 am and 6 pm have been rescheduled.
The repair work will make the 3.5 km runway non-operational for eight hours from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.
Around 48 flights including 28 departures and 20 arrivals are expected in the morning. The number of check-in counters and security checks at terminal 1 has been increased to handle passenger rush.
Around 10 check-in counters have been added while an additional identity verification point has also been set up. Now more than 10,000 passengers will be landing and departing in the morning hours.
The runway repair will not affect international passengers since most of those flights operate during night.
