The Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia Airport Terminal serves the city of Gwalior and is one of the four airports in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The airport is spread over 29.5 acres and is situated at a height of 188 meters above sea-level. Situated 10 km north-east of Gwalior, it is a civil enclave airport at the Maharajpur Air Force Station. It is jointly operated by the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Airports Authority of India (AAI). The Gwalior airport is primarily an IAF airbase, with the unique distinction of having two operational parallel runways. Under the UDAN scheme of the Govt. of India (an endeavor to boost regional connectivity between various cities, with a minimum distance of 800 km between them), domestic flights to select destinations were started from here in May 2017.
Gwalior is an old historical city with forts, palaces, and many museums. The Gwalior Fort that dates back to the 6th century is a magnificent structure built on a rock, surrounded by concrete sandstone walls. There are palaces, temples, and water tanks within its premises. Other destinations include the Jai Vilas Mahal, the Tomb of Tansen, the Samadhi of Rani Lakshmibai, the Tighra Dam, the Roop Singh Stadium, and the Birla Sun Temple.
