Despite the record, UK's second largest airport in Gatwick remains the most efficient airport in the world.

It handles 55 air traffic movements, during peak hours, which is slightly more than Mumbai's 52. 

The Mumbai Airport has two runways but since they are crisscross in structure, only one of them can be used at a time, and hence it qualifies as a single-runway airport.
