Zero Airport or Ziro Airport (IATA: ZER, ICAO: VEZO) is located at Ziro in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, India. In the past, Vayudoot and Air India used to operate daily flights to the airport. Jet Airways showed interest in flying into the airport from Delhi, but did not commence operations.
A Pre-feasibility study was conducted by the Ministry of Civil Aviation for improving the airport to enable ATR-42 class aircraft in 2008. The study found it unfeasible to extend the 1220 metre runway to accommodate a 50-seater aircraft, due to unauthorized constructions along the boundary wall. It was proposed that a new runway measuring 2010 metres be built on land adjacent to the current runway and all airport structures like ATC tower, fire station and terminal building be relocated.
