In 2007, the State Government had chosen Banderdeva, 25 km from Itanagar, as a suitable location for the project. The then Home Minister, Shivraj Patil, laid the foundation stone on 20 February 2007 for the project.[4] However, the technical committee of the AAI rejected the site and recommended Holongi as an alternative site for the project in 2011. AAI had recommended Holongi on grounds of operational safety, lower costs of construction and ease of future expansion. The Holongi site lay on flat ground, had better usability in poor weather and offered scope for easy construction and expansion. The Banderdeva site, on the other hand, was surrounded by hilly terrain and permitted operation of aircraft from only one direction. The cost of construction was estimated at Rs. 980 crore for Banderdeva, as against Rs. 650 crore for the Holongi site. The differences between AAI and the state government caused a dispute that resulted in the project getting delayed. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) eventually stepped in to put an end to the dispute in July 2012 and the Holongi site was finalised.[5] AAI completed the Master Plan of the airport began work on the Detailed Project Report (DPR) by August 2014.[6]

The airport will have a single 2,300 metre runway oriented east-west in the first phase, to serve Narrow-body aircraft and can be extended to 2,800 metres to land Wide-body aircraft. The airport apron will measure 160 metres by 115 metres linked to the runway by two taxiways. The airport will have night landing facilities and navigation facilities like DVOR and Instrument Landing Systems.[1]
