History of Jamshedpur Airport:

The aerodrome of the Jamshedpur airport is spread over the area of 25 acres. It opened for the first time in the year 1940. Earlier there were no scheduled flights for this airport but during the past few years many airlines like Jet airways, Air Deccan, Indian airlines, MDLR Airlines, etc serve this airport. There were some internal issues because of which the Deccan Charter and MDLR airlines stopped their services. In the year 2009 Air Deccan and Kingfisher Airlines also discontinued the services because load restrictions were imposed as the length of the runway was short.

Proposal of the new Airports:

In the Adityapur-Seraikela area , Tata Steel limited has given a proposal for a new airport to be made on 600 acres area. The length of the proposed airport would be 7000 feet. The runway is supposed to handle Airbus A320 flights also which was not possible on the old Airport at Sonari.

The AAI and the government of Jharkhand signed MoU on February 20th 2012 regarding the establishment of the new airport in the Jamshedpur city. The land will be provided by the state government.
