New Dholera airport

A new airport in Dholera SIR is required to cope with the highest annual growth in traffic at Ahmedabad airport and to absorb the future growth of this special investment region. It is predicted that this airport will be a world class international airport and also serve the adjoining cities Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Vadodara, Anand, Nadiyad and Rajkot. Road and rail infrastructure will be required to serve the new airport.

The state Government has apparently already purchased 1700 hectares of land suitable for such a project but there are other suitable sites being considered including at Navagam which is about 20 km south west of the proposed Dholera SIR site.

The Dholera airport project would be developed as joint venture project having equity partnership of AAI and state or it can be a BOT model with 100 % equity ownership by developer. The Greenfield Airport policy clearly states that any Greenfield airport should be undertaken in PPP mode.
