Mumbai: The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai remained shut for five hours on Saturday due to maintenance work, an official said.

The airport will be closed next Saturday also. All flights landing at or departing from Mumbai during this slot on both days have been rescheduled. 

However, the official said that major flight delays are not expected since all airlines had been informed well in advance about the closure between 11:30 am and 430 pm on both the days. 

The International Airport is in the process of carrying out major maintenance work on the main runway, including shifting and realigning of the edge and centre lights of the runway.
