Flying to Jharsuguda
Jharsuguda Airport, official known as Veer Surendra Sai Airport, is located only 5 km from Jharsuguda and is a relatively new airport having opened up in September 2018, although the site has been an airfield since World War II. The airport is set within a single passenger terminal which can handle up to 300 passengers at a time. There are several domestic flights available to and from Jharsuguda Airport, although the airport does not yet handle any international flights so travelers will not be able to fly directly from the UAE. However, you will conveniently be able to reach Jharsuguda from the UAE with just a single connecting flight.
Arriving in Jharsuguda
Upon arriving in Jharsuguda you will be able to catch a taxi just outside of the terminal building or visit a counter inside the airport to pay for your journey before setting off. You can also get in contact with your local hotel or resort which will usually be able to provide a private transfer on your behalf. There are no public transportation links to the airport as of June 2019, so you’ll need to arrange for a private transfer or catch a taxi to reach your destination.
