Visakhapatnam Airport (IATA: VTZ, ICAO: VEVZ) is located 7 km (4.3 mi) from Visakhapatnam in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. It is second busiest airport in Andhra Pradesh after Hyderabad International airport. It is controlled by the Indian Navy which carries out air traffic control as well as provides support for flying operations for both military and civil aviation.

The runway was originally 6,000 ft (1,800 m) and Indian Union Minister of State for Mines T Subbirami Reddy inaugurated the newly constructed 10,500 ft (3,200 m) and 60 m (200 ft) wide runway at the Vizag Airport on 15 June 2007.

With the installation and calibration of the instrument landing system, Visakhapatnam got night landing capabilities in July 2007, with the Dornier of the Indian Navy taking off from the new landing facility.

The night landing facility became operational from 30 March 2008 for commercial airlines with SpiceJet being the first airline to use the facility.
