Bhuj Airport (IATA: BHJICAO: VABJ) is located in Bhuj in the Kutch District of the state of Gujarat, India.

The airport was previously made up of two bunkers/buildings near the Bhuj Rudra Mata Air Force Base, with which it shares the runway. On one side of the passing road there was an Indian Airlines bunker, and on the other side a Jet Airways bunker. From there a coach would transport one across the Indian Air Force grounds to the small departures terminal.

Over the last few years, a suitable airport terminal has been built, with parking and a drop-off/collect point. Also during that time, Indian has stopped all services to and from Bhuj airport, and Deccan check-in counters have been built, but are yet to be used.

Bhuj Airport was used to receive help and supplies for the 2001 Gujarat earthquake.

The Airport has been recently been named Shyamji Krishna Verma, Bhuj Airport.
