Jeypore Airport is currently in the process of obtaining a 2B license and all the infrastructure work has been completed and an application has been submitted to the Airport Authority.

The DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) team has yet to come and investigate all the construction work. The DGCA has also asked for full details of the Airport’s geographical location, ancillary infrastructure, etc.

The DGCA team is scheduled to visit in the third or fourth week of this month. However, the process of applying for an extension of 2B to 2C licenses is underway before they come and inspect, said chief Engineer Bhaskar Chandra Samantaraya.

On the other hand, the 9-seater OneIndia Airlines flight has arrived in Ahmedabad. The completion of the 150-meter stretch on both sides (total 300 meters) for the 2C runway is also nearing completion, said the chief engineer’s team.

With the increase in the 300-meter runway, the total length of the Jeypore Airport runway is expected to be 1500 meters. Similarly, on these 2B and 2C runways, it is difficult to land large aircraft. Therefore, the Ministry of Civil Aviation is currently planning to build a 3C runway with a grant of Rs 232 crore.
