The airport is planned to be upgraded and expanded through the construction of a new passenger terminal building, expansion of Runway 10/28 on Runway 10’s end, and installation of CAT-1 ILS approach lighting for Runway 28.

Further new facilities are proposed for a cargo terminal, removal of encroachment, and construction of drainage facilities in the outer premises of the airport.

Current Status

The project’s expansion has been a non-starter since 2012 due to pending land acquisition. The airport is planned for privatization in 2022 which will likely result in changes to the master plan.
