AAI's plan to extend the Juhu airport runway and shift the slower-moving turbo props and private jets to Juhu, was opposed by the state government. The government argues that the extension project would impact the proposed Bandra-Versova sea link. Also, the locals might object to the plan to extend the runway. The airport serves as a helibase for Mumbai and handles around 100 chopper movements a day.
