Gannavaram airport plans to take wings

The modernisation and expansion of Gannavaram Airport has been envisioned with the single­handed efforts of Shri Kesineni Srinivas. The stagewise plan for the development of the airport to an international airport has begun with the work to complete the expansion of runaway of Vijayawada (Gannavaram) Airport from the present 7,500 metres to 10,000 metres in March 2016. That is projected to be done in 2 years' time. Another 2 to 3 years’ work is expected to complete the expansion of the airport. There is also the plan to improve flight connectivity between Vijayawada and Delhi.
