Vellore Airport (IATA: VOVR) is an airport located in Vellore, in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. Proposal to make the airport fully functional by 2009 to allow operation by 45-seater ATR aircraft has been proposed by the government. The Tamil Nadu government has recently announced that it would speed up the construction of terminal buildings and thereby make the airport fully operational by 2009.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has embarked on an "idle airports activation programme" in the Southern region that includes Vellore. The Vellore airstrip, located on 51.5 acres (208,000 m2), was activated recently to facilitate regular flying by trainee pilots of the Madras Flying Club.
