The proposed greenfield Sindhudurg Airport is being built at Chipi-Parule in Sindhudurg district, in the State of Maharashtra, India. The project site is located 27 kilometres from the Mumbai - Goa NH-17, 12 kilometres from Malvan close to the sea shore.

The airport is being built by IRB Sindhudurg Airport Pvt. Ltd. on a Build–operate–transfer (BOT) basis for the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC).[1] The airport will have a 3170 metre long runway and will cost 175 crores.[2] It will be spread over 275 hectares and will be able to accommodate aircraft like the Boeing 737.

IRB Infrastructure won the bid to develop the airport in 2009 for a concession period of 95 years.[3] The project received environmental clearance in March 2012.[4] Work on the airport is expected to be completed in the second half of 2014.[5]
