Mundra Airport is a private airport in Mundra, Kutch, Gujarat, India owned by Mundra International Airport Private Ltd (MIAPL), a subsidiary of the Adani Group. The airstrip is spread over 45 hectares[2] and is used for scheduled as well as non-scheduled operations.[1]

The 1,900-metre long airstrip was built as part of the Mundra Special Economic Zone for operation of executive jets in January 2007.[3]

In October 2017, the Adani Group announced plans to develop the airstrip into a commercial international airport for passenger, cargo and Maintenance spread over 522 hectares[2] by investing 1500 crore. The terminal building will have a capacity of 300 passengers. The runway will be capable of handling of large aircraft like the Boeing 747 and will have night landing facilities. They have received environment clearance.[1][4] It will be commissioned by 2022.[2]

Under UDAN Regional Connectivity Scheme, Air Odisha started flights between Ahmedabad and Mundra in February 2018.[5]
