Airport Upgradation Survey
In tune with the state government's initiative to boost air services in the industrially rich areas of the state, Jagdalpur airport has been identified for upgrade.
Accordingly, in December 2015, a five-member team of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) along with Raipur airport officials visited Jagdalpur airport to study the feasibility of starting full-fledged commercial operations from there.
The team, headed by member planning AAI, along with aerodrome inspector from DGCA, Expert from civil engineering, Assistant commissioner security from Bureau of civil aviation security Mumbai along with Airport director, and deputy director of state government aviation, inspected the facilities at the airport and suggested ways and means to upgrade them.
