Deesa Airport

Desa Airport-Malayalamonline
Deesa Airport (also spelled Disa Airport) is an airport in Deesa, Gujarat originally built to serve the princely state of Palanpur. It is managed by the Airports Authority of India.

The airport hit national headlines in February 2011 when Subramanian Swamy claimed that 2G Scam accused Shahid Balwa illegally used the airport for transporting “all kinds of VIPs and criminals” in and out of the country secretly. The Airports Authority of India denied this was the case, stating that the airstrip was not used for the last 2 years, due to the poor condition of the airstrip, adding that it was fit only for paragliding. The airfield was most recently used for a sky diving program in 2007.
