In a regulatory filing, GMR Infrastructure said its subsidiary GMR Airports Limited has received the LoA for the development of greenfield international airport at Bhogapuram from the government of Andhra Pradesh.
In February 2019, GMR Airports had emerged as the highest bidder for project on a public-private partnership basis.

In calendar year 2019, the existing civil enclave at Vishakapatnam Naval Airfield has handled 2.78 million passengers and around 4400 Tons cargo.
Over the past five years, the passenger traffic at the Vizag airport has grown at 21 percent CAGR while the Airport ranks 5th amongst the custom airports in India in terms of Cargo traffic.
The proposed greenfield airport site is strategically located on the east coast and it stands to get benefit from the vast catchment area surrounding the region, the filing said.
