The airport is operated by Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), a Joint Venture between Adani Enterprises, a subsidiary of the Adani Group and Airports Authority of India.[6]

A dedicated six lane, elevated road connecting the new terminal with the main arterial Western Express Highway[7] was also opened to the public the same day.[8] The airport offers nonstop or connecting flights to all six inhabited continents.

The airport is named after Shivaji (1630–1680), a 17th-century Chhatrapati of the Maratha Empire. It was renamed in 1999 from the previous "Sahar Airport" to "Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport" (the title "Maharaj" was inserted on 30 August 2018[9]). It is situated across the suburbs of Santacruz and Sahar Village in Vile Parle East.
