Chandigarh Airport (IATA: IXC, ICAO: VICG) soon to be integrated with upcoming Chandigarh International Airport is located in the Union Territory of Chandigarh, India. The airport is currently undergoing construction of an integrated passenger terminal, and many other facilities.

International Airport

Chandigarh Airport is being integrated with upcoming Chandigarh International Airport, Mohali instead of leaving it as a Domestic Airport. Work is underway for a new International Terminal, upgrading the Domestic Terminal, three link taxiways, parallel taxi track, cargo complex and hangers of flying club activities and runway extension. The terminal which will be of Glass and Steel, will have 4 boarding (jetways) bridges, construction of apron for parking three in contact and eight remote parking stands for wide-bodied jet aircraft.

Chandigarh International Airport is coming up at 306 acres (1.24 km) land of Jheorehri village,near Mohali, the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority is spending Rs 1,700 crore to connect this airport with Punjab.

Name of New Airport

The topic of a new Chandigarh Airport is big in Punjab and Haryana. The Name has been an ongoing issue. At first the Airport was to be named Mohali International Airport, since it is in the suburb of Mohali in Chandigarh. But since Chandigarh is a Union Territory, Haryana also will have a share in the Airport, and since Mohali is on the Punjab side of the city, Haryana felt the name of Mohali International Airport will not show Haryana's share in the airport. For now the two states have agreed on a name for the airport, Chandigarh International Airport.[1][2] Lately, Haryana has fully supported the naming of the international airport of Chandigarh as Shaheed Bhagat Singh International Airport.[3]
