Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) is an airport serving the western Indian city of Mumbai, and the second-busiest airport in the country after Indira Gandhi International Airport in the national capital of Delhi. It has been the world’s busiest single-runway airport since 2017, when it overtook London Gatwick Airport.
The airport is named after Chhatrapati Shivaji, a legendary Maratha warrior. It was known as Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport until 30 August 2018, when the title ‘Maharaj’ was inserted. It is operated by the Hyderabad-based GVK Group, which also operated Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru from its inauguration in 2008 until 2017.

This logo is set in the Myriad font. Notice that the coloured strokes at the left of the logo form the letters ‘CSIA’.
The font has changed from Myriad to Centro Sans, which the airport has consistently used in all its social media posts since 2011. The leftmost stroke is now red instead of pink, and the one next to it is yellow instead of orange.
