A new Greenfield Airport is being planned at Hirasar near Rajkot in Gujarat near the National Highway (NH-8B) connecting Ahmedabad and Rajkot. The airport will be developed by the Airports Authority of India at a cost of Rs 1,405 crores. The site clearance approval for the airport was granted by the Centre in May 2017. Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi presided over the groundbreaking ceremony held on 7th October 2017. The Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF) accorded environmental clearance (EC) to the project on 10th October 2017. The new airport will be capable of handling Airbus A-320 type of aircraft and will have green features like rainwater harvesting system, solar power system and a green belt along its periphery to act as a noise barrier. The airport, spread across 2,534 acres, will be situated 27 kilometers from the existing Rajkot Airport.
