The financing structure will enable a scalable capital solution with flexibility to tap global capital markets in line with Adani Airports’ vision of providing a transformational airport infrastructure platform.

We are grateful to our stakeholders and consumers for their continued support and their confidence in us.”

Adani Airports recently concluded the Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) $750m private placement to Apollo and $1.74bn closure of Navi Mumbai International Airport Limited (NMIAL).
