Belgaum Sambre-Belgavi Airport (IATA: IXGICAO: VOBM) also known as Belgavi Airport, is located 10 km (6.2 mi) east of Belagavi, Karnataka, India on State Highway 20. The Sambra Air Force Station, a Non-flying Basic Training Institute[1] of the Indian Air Force is located adjacent to this airfield.[2][3]


The airport is spread over 440 acres and its apron can handle two ATR-72 aircraft.[4] A second taxiway connecting the emergency service enclave to the main apron is under construction. The enclave will cater to the VIP terminal. Work on expansion of the airport is in full swing. The government has acquired 298 acres (1.21 km2) of land around the airport to hand over to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for expansion of the airport. The existing airport terminal building has been upgraded at a cost of Rs 35.7 million. The upgrades include an air-conditioned security zone, three check-in counters with feeder conveyor belts, a spacious arrival hall with conveyors, a VIP room, space for four airline offices, surveillance CCTV cameras, security control room and parking facility for 50 cars.
