Mangaluru Airport, is an international airport serving the coastal city of Mangaluru (Mangalore), India. It is one of the only two international airports in Karnataka, the other being Kempegowda International Airport, Bangalore. In addition to domestic destinations, flights depart daily for major cities in the Middle East. The airport, then the Bajpe Aerodrome, was opened on 25 December 1951 when then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru arrived on a DC-3 Dakota aircraft.
The airport is near Bajpe, around 13km northeast of Mangaluru (Mangalore) city centre. It is on top of a hill, with two tabletop runways (09/27 and 06/24). Only two other airports in India have tabletop runways – Kozhikode and Lengpui. The very small and basic terminal was renovated in the early 2000s, adding parking controls, additional seating and additional cafés. The airport was initially used for limited domestic flights, mainly Mumbai and Bengaluru.
