The Civil Aviation Ministry has given clearance for four greenfield airports. The three greenfield airports will be in Andhra Pradesh and an international airport at Dholera in Gujarat. 
Civil Aviation Secretary Rajiv Nayan Choubey yesterday said in New Delhi, the international airport at Dholera is expected to reduce the air traffic load at the existing Ahmedabad airport. 
The Environment Ministry has already given environmental clearance to 1,378 crore rupees airport project at Dholera in Ahmedabad last year. 
Mr Choubey said, the site clearance, which is the first clearance, was given for the Bhogapuram airport in Andhra Pradesh which is about 40 km from Visakhapatnam. 
He said, the Ministry has also given its go ahead for development of a greenfield airport in Nellore and Kurnool districts under a public-private partnership. A greenfield airport is a new airport which is constructed on an undeveloped site.
The Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad near Hyderabad and Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru are greenfield airports.
