Bokaro Airport (ICAO: VEBK) is a private airport located in Bokaro Steel City, in the state of Jharkhand, India. It is situated on National Highway-23 (Also known as the Bokaro-Chas road). There are no scheduled flights into this airport. Air Deccan had tried to launch its flights between Bokaro and Kolkata in 2010. A team of Air Deccan officials visited Bokaro, surveyed the market potential and assessed the airport. However the services did not materialise. The airstrip is only used by aircraft of the Bokaro Steel Plant and those of visiting VIPs.
A report submitted by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), to the civil aviation authorities in August 2013 suggested that the length of the airstrip be increased by another 700 feet to a total of 6,000 feet to facilitate landing of larger aircraft.
