But since around last 50 years this airport in not operational. But Gujarat aviation department wants to re-develop new airport at this location only because they will not need to get various licences for existing airport that are needed for establishing an airport at new location.
Gujarat State Aviation Infrastructure Company Limited (GUJSAIL) is the government agency for development this airfield in Morbi.
