The year 2006 witnessed a momentous change for the airports in India with the privatization of Mumbai’s GVK Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (GVK CSIA). In order to achieve a global standard, GVK CSIA has partnered with well-known international experts for airport design and operations. Terminal 2, referred to as T2, will be state-of-art 4 level integrated terminal and it will be unique as our land, our heritage. The distinctly proud Indian design of this new terminal will set new international standards, across every aspect such as architecture, planning, technology, functionality and service. There was a need of Facility Management (Soft Services) at the Mumbai International Airport T2 Terminal.
