Maharana Pratap Airport (IATA: UDR, ICAO: VAUD) is a domestic airport serving Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. It is situated at Dabok, located 22 km (14 mi) east of Udaipur.[5] The airport is named after Maharana Pratap who was a Maharana (ruler) of the princely state of Mewar, in north-western India.

The airstrip was used for the first time when a 4-seater Piper Super Cub landed in the airport on 16 November 1957.[6][7] The airport's new passenger terminal commenced operations in February 2008.[8]
