Dholera Airport Project

Dholera international airport can be a game changer for India's first smart city. As the city is all set for heavy economic activities and targets to attract international interest, sanction of Dholera airport project has come right in time to support the city’s developmental aspirations.

Having received the environmental clearance in December 2015, Dholera airport has been fast tracked by the authorities along with few other projects such as six lane expressway which shall connect Dholera to Ahmedabad and Bhavnagar and high speed metro rail. The project site is located 20 kms from the smart city and would be connected to the city via metro rail for easy access to residents.

Dholera international airport shall serve dual purpose. While it shall make Dholera a globally accessible city and a preferred investment destination, it shall also lift off the excess load currently piled up on Ahmedabad airport. Passengers travelling from Ahmedabad international airport have risen steeply over the years leading the facility close to its saturation point. It is estimated that Ahmedabad airport shall be saturated by 2020 and Dholera airport project would come to its rescue by sharing the load of spillover traffic. Besides, it shall also serve the traffic from neighboring cities of Vadodara, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Nadiad, Kheda and Anand.
