Navi Mumbai (shown in these pictures) is a part of Greater Mumbai and is a planned satellite city.

This second international airport for bustling Mumbai is no small venture – it is being developed to initially handle a capacity of 10 million passengers per annum. The project will subsequently be enhanced to handle 20 MPA.
