Rajkot Greenfield Airport is a greenfield airport to be built at Hirasar, Gujarat, India[2] near the National Highway (NH-8B) connecting Ahmedabad and Rajkot. It is planned as a single runway airport for the operation of ‘C’ category aircraft.[3] The airport will be developed by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) at a cost of Rs 2,654 crores.[4]

The site clearance approval for the airport was granted by the Centre in May 2017. Prime Minister Narendra Modi presided over the groundbreaking ceremony held on 7 October 2017. The Union ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate change (MoEF) accorded environmental clearance (EC) to the project on 10 October 2017.[5]

Land acquisition issues delayed the tendering process by a few months.[6] Afcons, Dilip Buildcon, Gayatri Projects, Larsen & Toubro and Reliance Infrastructure were among the bidders for the Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) tender floated by AAI. The financial bids were opened on 9 August 2018 and Reliance emerged as the lowest bidder.[3] The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs gave its approval for the project on 28 February 2019.[7] Subsequently, in March 2019, Reliance Infrastructure was awarded the EPC contract worth Rs. 648 Crores to construct the airport. The construction is to be completed within 30 months.[8] The contract also requires the contractor to provide operation and maintenance services for a period of two years following the commissioning of the project.[3] The Central Government had initially sanctioned Rs. 1,405 crores for the project,[9] but revised the amount in June 2019 to Rs. 2654 crores.[4] The airport will be capable of handling Airbus A320 type of aircraft and will have a rainwater harvesting system, solar power system and a green belt along its periphery to act as a noise barrier.

The airport, measuring 2,534 acres, will be situated 27 kilometres from the existing Rajkot airport, whose capacity is constrained and cannot be expanded because of commercial development around it.
