Bhogapuram international airport in Andhra Pradesh will be ready by 2025: Minister

Andhra Pradesh Minister for Industries and Information Technology Gudivada Amarnath has said that the international airport being constructed at Bhogapuram in Vizianagaram district would be ready by year 2025 as the works were going on at a brisk pace.

Along with YSRCP Regional Coordinator Y.V. Subba Reddy and public representatives of Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts, he visited the project site and interacted with the GMR Group senior executives.
Later addressing the media, he said that the international airport being constructed in around 2,300 acres at an estimated cost of INR 4,750 crore would spur economic activity in the North Andhra region.

He said that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy had already directed GMR Group to complete the construction activity within two-and-a-half years during the foundation-laying ceremony that was held on May 3, 2023.

Vizianagaram Zilla Parishad chairperson Majji Srinivasa Rao said that the TDP was trying to get credit for the Bhogapuram airport although the then TDP government could not get required permissions from the Union government.
