 Gaya Airport

Gaya Airport

Gaya Airport, also known as Bodhgaya Airport, is situated just 10 km away from Gaya and handles a range of domestic and regional flights, most of which are conducted on a seasonal basis. The airport is primarily used for pilgrimage flights due to its close proximity to the Buddhist site of Bodh Gaya, with over 100,000 travelers passing through each year.

Terminals at Gaya Airport

There is just a single passenger terminal at Gaya Airport which offers little by way of amenities. The airport is also primarily a seasonal airport, so you will find options are even more limited during the off-season. The passenger terminal itself is set across a single level which handles both arrivals and departures. This makes it much more convenient to transfer between flights as you do not have a long journey on your hands.

Facilities at Gaya Airport

At Gaya Airport you won’t find much available in terms of facilities and amenities, so travelers are advised to bring any essential items to the airport. However, you can find a couple of snack bars and shops if you need any refreshments or travel necessities. Travelers requiring special assistance at the airport should get in contact with your airline at least 48 hours before arriving at the airport.

The weather in Gaya gets very hot between April and June with average highs of around 40 degrees, while the weather still stays relatively warm across the year. However, there is a rainy season which commences in June and carries on through until September, so you may want to avoid visiting during this period.
