History of C S I Airport, Mumbai: Commercial aviation commenced on October 15, 1932 at Juhu air strip, 2.5 km away from present Mumbai Airport. Since it was at the edge of the sea, it could not be expanded to war requirement in 1930 & 1940. So, a new site was selected at Santacruz. This was the beginning in 1940 of the present Mumbai Airport. In 1946, DGCA took over the aerodrome from air force.

The International Airports Authority of India (IAAI) was set up in 1972 took over the operation of the four metro airports and planned expansion. However, IAAI was merged and formed Airports Authority of India in the year 1994.
