Muzaffarpur Airport (IATA: MZUICAO: VEMZ) is a civil airport at Muzaffarpur, in the state of Bihar, India. It was built for the arrival of Indira Gandhi, who was Prime Minister of India at the time. The airport is spread over 102 acres, located five kilometres west of the city on State Highway 46. In a bid to give a boost to civil aviation sector and enhance air connectivity to Tier-II and Tier-III cities, the government has proposed to set up a low-cost airport at Muzaffarpur.
