Total area identified for Airport development is 1426 hectares. The airport is slated to have two runways capable of handling wide-bodied long-haul aircrafts such as the A380.
The existing airport of Ahmedabad has emerged as one with highest annual growth in traffic and will get saturated much before the year 2020. The expansion of Ahmedabad airport is difficult due to various reasons. Under the circumstances, a new international airport is required to cater the future traffic.
While assessing the potential and requirements of the Dholera SIR, Government envisaged a tremendous need for a Greenfield International Airport in its vicinity. The level of economic activities in the SIR backed by enormous domestic and foreign investment shall need a world class modern International Airport in this region. Therefore state has included the development of an International Airport in the list of “Early Bird Projects” in consultation with Department of Industrial Promotion and Policy. GoG has also signed an MoU with the Delhi Metro Industrial Corridor Development Company in this regard.

Gujarat has been the corporate face of India that houses most of the major industries of India, large numbers of SMES and multinational companies. It has set up a number of vibrant Industrial Clusters, Industrial Estates and SEZs.
Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board (GIDB) is a modal agency to spur the growth of the infrastructure in the state by way of facilitating large number of projects in Public Private Partnership mode through enabling legal and institutional frame work.
GIDB has envisaged the need of an International Airport following the ambitious planning of Government of India to set up a Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) and Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC).The Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) falling in DMIC corridor will be the global hub of economic activities with world class infrastructure and premium civic facilities.
The Proposed Dholera International Airport Project would serve the logistic requirement of upcoming Dholera SIR besides handling the spill over traffic from existing Ahmedbad Airport in future. The proposed airport will propel an airport led economic growth in the entire region in line with other Aerotropolis worldwide.
Government of Gujarat has formed Dholera International Airport Company Ltd. (DIACL) to facilitate the project. DIACL shall obtain necessary approvals from Central/State government. In addition to various studies and surveys, the Company will also develop basic infrastructure. Later, private developer will be selected through open competitive bidding route.
