Allahabad Airport or Bamrauli Airport (IATA: IXD, ICAO: VEAB) is a military airbase and public airport serving the city of Allahabad, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It is located in Bamrauli at a distance of 12 km (7.5 mi) from Allahabad and is operational for domestic flights. Nearby airports include Lucknow , Varanasi and Kanpur . It is one of the oldest airports in India.
Although the first official mail flight took off from Allahabad, that particular flight originated in a polo field. Construction of dedicated airfields were taken up much later, in 1926. The airfield at Bamrauli was one of the five compulsory stops of the MacRobertson Trophy Air Race which took place in October 1934.
