Jeypore Airport (ICAO: VEJP) is located 3 kilometres north-west of the town of Jeypore in Odisha, India. The airstrip was constructed in 1962 along with the establishment of a Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) factory nearby at Sunabeda.[1] In the 1980s, Vayudoot operated a daily Bhubaneswar-bound flight via Vishakapatnam.[2]

The airport is spread over 60 acres. The state government has asked the Koraput district administration to identify another 310 acres of land adjoining the existing airstrip to facilitate its expansion.[1] The Odisha government has made a provision of Rs 6 crore for the renovation of the airstrip.[3]
