Bhogapuram Airport, a greenfield airport project will be built near Bhogapuram, 40 kilometers north-east of Vishakapatnam, India. The project will come up on 5,311 acres in and around Bhogapuram, including 1,673 acres of government land.[1] The airport will be built by the Bhogapuram International Airport Company Limited (BIACL), a Special purpose vehicle (SPV) owned by the government that was set up in May 2015.[2] The airport will be built as part of an aerotropolis, which will also have a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility along with an aviation academy. The project will be taken up in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode with the state holding stake in the form of land holdings.[3]

The proposal for setting up a green field airport was mooted during the Congress regime in 2013. Alternate sites like Atchuthapuram, S Rayavaram and Bheemili were also considered before settling for Bhogapuram, but the Indian Navy raised objections to these sites.[4] The Airports Authority of India (AAI) gave its technical approval of the project site in June 2015.[5] The current Visakhapatnam Airport is a civil enclave on a naval airfield, and hence suffers from constraints.[6]
