Jawaharlal Darda Airport is a public airport located 9 Kilometres east of the city of Yavatmal, in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, India.

History[edit]

Yavatmal Airport was constructed in 1998 by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation. [1] The airport was largely under-used being used only for government-operated aircraft. With the aim to facilitate increase in air traffic, which in turn, would help boost trade in the region, the Maharashtra State Industries Ministry began the process of modernisation of MIDC airports in 2006. It floated tenders inviting private parties to draw out a plan for airport operations.[2]Reliance Airport Developers Ltd offered the highest bid (Rs 27 crore) for Latur, Nanded and Yavatmal.[3] Yavatmal's 113.93 hectare airport premises were leased for 95 years to Reliance Airport Developers Ltd on October 30, 2009. [4] Reliance is keen to set up a facility for recycling aero parts at Yavatmal airport.[5]

Structure[edit]

Yavatmal Airport has one asphalt runway, oriented 09/27, 1400 metres long and 45 metres wide, an apron measuring 80 by 60 metres and a small terminal building.
