Mithi River in the vicinity of the Mumbai Airport causes lots of problem to the air travellers. T2 Terminal is prone to mosquito menace and the people travelling through air from this pocket suffer because of mosquito bite and face the buzz around and there is no escape route. We saw near misses and hits in recent times. The radar failure in Mumbai, which caused flights hovering around the Mumbai Airport and some others were diverted as well. Now the mosquito menace is causing worry as the Mithi River stretches around T2 terminal and making a home for mosquitos. Why this chaos in the air and in the airport tarmac. With monsoon season approaching, the city we can face the influx of mosquito increasing and causing more discomfiture. Paying Passengers are put into discomfort and it is time to see the menace of Mithi River brought to an end and a safe voyage for the passengers.
