The State Chief Minister Shivrajsinghchauhan was present on the occasion

Rewa Airfield has a runway of 1400 meters with a small building of 150 sq. meters and   61.95 acres of land. It was owned by the State Government of Madhya Pradesh. The State Government has handed over the existing airport to the Airport Authority of India for the revival and construction of facilities to operate 19-seater aircraft. 

AAI has been awarded the work on 22.12.2022 which includes strengthening the existing runway along with the grading of runway strip area on either side of the runway, construction of RESA   and construction of the terminal building of 750 sq. meters with peak hour capacity of 50 passengers.

The Minister appreciated the state government for providing the required land and said that the airport with an expenditure of Rs 300 crores will be developed and operationalised soon.

UDAN scheme has fulfilled the dream of the common citizen of India and One crore fifteen lakh people have flown under this scheme on subsided fares.

It has been mutually decided between the Madhya Pradesh Government and AAI that State Government would acquire additional land of 290 acres for making this airport suitable for ATR-72 operations

The largest number of green field airports, expansion of existing airports and increasing the flights out of Gwalior and Indore have taken place in Madhya Pradesh ever since MrScindia took over the Civil Aviation Portfolio.
