Kandla Airport first started civilian operations in 1960 and has recently began operating commercial flights again in 2017. The airport is situated just 6 km above the town of Gandhidham and is around 20 km from the port of Kandla. The airport consists of a single passenger terminal and offers only the basics in terms of amenities and services. However, there are still a couple of convenience stores and snack bars in the terminal building available for travelers. There are currently just two regular flight services handled at the airport from Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Although UAE-based passengers won’t be able to fly directly to Kandla, you can make the journey with just a single connecting flight.

The most convenient way to reach your destination when you have arrived at the airport is by taxi, with taxis available just outside of the terminal building.

It is also worth contacting your resort or hotel as they will often be able to provide their own private transfer.
