Plans of converting Ludhiana into an Aerotropolis, is underway. The government had proposed a plan to construct an airport first at Ladhaowal and then it would be gradually expanded to the Halwara air force base for trying to accommodate passenger flights. This will be India’s second aerotropolis after the one at Durgapur. The new airport will cover an area on 3,500 acres.


The existing airport at Ludhiana has only one terminal which spreads on an area of 130 acres and has the capacity of handling 40 passengers at any time. At present only Air India regional operates intermittent flights to Delhi and Pathankot from Ludhiana. The airport is not always operational because of improper positioning of navigational gadgets and high tension power lines obstructing the installation of DVOR (Doppler Very High Frequency Omni-Range) navigation system. Since the airport is not always in service, it provides very basic services like trolleys, wheel chair assistance and baggage services. There are no shops or snack counters at the airport.

Ludhiana is the largest and one of the most popular cities in Punjab and famous for its numerous industries. Amritsar airport, Lahore airport, Dharamsala airport and Kullu airport are some of the major airports located very close to Ludhiana.
