According to a vision document released by the ministry of civil aviation on January 15, 2019, by 2040 at least 31 cities in India will have two airports, whereas Delhi and Mumbai will have a third airport by then.

This report was released at the Global Aviation Summit in Mumbai. It’s said that most of the large Indian airports are expected to be saturated over the next 10-15 years. Some of the bigger airports are already operating in excess of their capacity.

For instance, the Delhi airport handled 63.5 million passengers in 2017, and is expected to reach 70 million this year and will start operating beyond its capacity.
