The proposed greenfield Sindhudurg Airport is being built at Chipi-Parule in Sindhudurg district, in the State of Maharashtra, India. The project site is located 27 kilometres from the Mumbai - Goa NH-17, 12 kilometres from Malvan close to the sea shore.
The airport is being built by IRB Sindhudurg Airport Pvt. Ltd. on a Build–operate–transfer (BOT) basis for the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC). The airport will have a 3170 metre long runway and will cost 175 crores. It will be spread over 275 hectares and will be able to accommodate aircraft like the Boeing 737.
IRB Infrastructure won the bid to develop the airport in 2009 for a concession period of 95 years. The project received environmental clearance in March 2012. Work on the airport was expected to be completed in the second half of 2014.[needs update]
