Project Information
Project Name:

Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism

Bagerhat, Khulna, Bangladesh
Estimated Capital Cost:
Cabinet Committee for Economic Affairs approved the project on 05 May 2015.

Khulna being the second port city and a highly potential economic zone, doesn’t have an airport. The construction of Padma Bridge, upcoming power plants near Mongla Port, construction of special economic zone (SEZ) and Mongla Port itself makes this region the strongest candidate for a heightened economic activity and prosperity. This airport will open a new horizon of economic development and industrialization in the south-western region and also boost tourism.

In this connection, Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) approved the Khan Jahan Ali Air Port construction project. The airport will be built on 536 acres of land and Foyla under Rampal upazila of Bagerhat beside the Khulna-Mongla highway.


The main objective of this project is to positive impact on economy, sports, medical services, social development, the lives and wellbeing of the people of Khulna and the adjacent areas.

Project Scope:

The businesses in Khulna area will expand due to growing export-oriented fish processing industries, Mongla EPZ and the special economic zone, and tourist spot-the Sundarbans. So the proposed airport will be helpful to facilitate these businesses there.
