Warangal Airport (IATA: WGC, ICAO: VOWA) is located at Warangal in the state of Telangana, India. It remained in service until 1981.



Warangal Airport, the largest pre-independence era airport, was built at Mamnoor in Warangal district, in 1930. It was commissioned by the last Nizam, Mir Osman Ali Khan, along with one at Sholapur, to benefit the businesses, at Sirpur Kaghaznagar for the paper industry's convenience, and to help industries like the Azam Zahi mills at Warangal. Numerous PMs and Presidents have landed at the airport until 1981, and during the Indo-China war, it served as a hangar for government aircraft due to Delhi airport being a target in combat. Many cargo services and Vayudoot services have also used it as their hub.


Warangal Airport was the largest airport in the country at the time, with 1875 acres in land, a 6.6 km runway, a pilot and staff quarters, a pilot training centre and more than one terminal.
