Although this was our third time traveling via the new Mumbai International Airport Terminal, we never got the chance to really explore it. Blame it on the Mumbai traffic but we almost always reached with enough time to reach the boarding area 45 mins before.
You probably have no interest in seeing how the new Mumbai Terminal looks like but if you travel enough then you also know how important airports can be when you have hours to kill before boarding a flight.
The new Terminal is huge with high ceilings and spacious sections. It’s gleaming and spotless. The best thing though is the design. It embodies a lot of Indian culture, traditions and art. It’s not design for design sake. Everything has a meaning. The no. and variety of shops are limited, especially no bookstores. That was a bummer. But we were told that bookstores would be opening in the future. There is a lot of space to lounge around or lay down for a few minutes if you want to. And considering we reached 4 hours before anticipating heavy traffic dues to rains, it was god sent.
