Panna Airport is an airport that serves the town of Panna, Madhya Pradesh. Spread over 106 acres, it is currently maintained by the Airports Authority of India.[1]

The airport is currently listed as "non-operational",[2] part of a list of 32 such airports submitted by the then Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel to the Lok Sabha in 2009,[3] though the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chauhan had spoken of privatising the airport in 2007.[4]
