Lalgarh Airport is located at Lalgarh jattan, 26 kilometres South-East of Sri Ganganagar, in the state of Rajasthan, India.[1] It is owned and operated by the State Government of Rajasthan. The airport is spread over 65 acres, has a 1300 metre long runway and a 4410 square metre apron for two small aircraft. A 125 square metre rest house serves as a terminal building.

The district administration plans to expand the airport at a cost of 28.5 crore to enable the operation of larger aircraft.[2] The State Civil Aviation Department signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Army in November 2017, allowing the Army to use the airstrip for 10 years.[3]
