Dholera International Airport is a proposed International airport near Ahmedabad in Gujarat state in India. It will be built near Fedara in the Dhandhuka taluka of Ahmedabad district. The project site is about 80 kilometers from Ahmedabad and around 20 kilometres from the Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR). The greenfield project is being developed by the Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board.
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) inspected the site in January 2010 to carry out a techno-economical feasibility study and gave its technical clearance the following month. The project received "site clearance" from the central government in July 2014. This airport is being developed due to "expansion constraints" at the existing airport in Ahmedabad city. The Gujarat government has ear-marked 1700 hectares of government land between the villages of Pachham, Valinda and Pipli for the project.
