Kushinagar Airport is an upcoming airport situated in Kushinagar, Kushinagar district in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is located in 52 km east of Gorakhpur Airport.[1] The airstrip spans 97 acres,[2] has a small apron of 145 metres by 46 metres[3] and handles small aircraft.

The airport lies near an important Buddhist pilgrimage site, where Gautama Buddha has attained Parinirvana after his death. The State Government plans to develop the airport to cater to international tourists who visit this site. The government has acquired 650 acres of land for this project at a cost of Rs 180 crores.[3]

The Central Government has agreed to a Viability gap funding (VGF) of 20%.[4] The airport will be built through a joint venture between State Government and the Airports Authority of India (AAI).[5]

The project was initially intended to be developed on PPP model at an estimated cost of Rs.354 Crores. The State Government had selected IL&FS Infrastructure Development Company Limited as PPP project consultants. The project got an "In Principle Approval" from the Ministry of Civil Aviation (India) in September 2010.

The government received 15 technical bids in 2013 from reputed infrastructure companies for development of the airport.[6]

The state cabinet cleared the project and approved the financial bid document in January 2014.[2] But despite several attempts to reduce the cost and the size of the project, the government could not convince private players about its viability. In May 2015, the state government decided to take the support of AAI to go ahead with the project.[5]

Funds of Rs.199.00 Crores for the proposed International Airport at Kushinagar was released in November 2017 by Uttar Pradesh led by Shri Yogi Adityanath. and during UP Investor Summit in February 2018, Shri Yogi Adityanath has announced that the airport at Kushinagar will be operational from mid of 2018 this will be a massive development by any government in this region which will provide direct and indirect employment to this region. Due to some technical reasons the airport will still take some time to commence operations.[7]

Under UDAN scheme Kushinagar will be connected with  Gaya, Lucknow,
