Flying to Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer Airport is situated around 15 km from central Jaisalmer and operates as both a commercial and military airport. The airport currently handles just a few regular domestic flights from around India and is set within a new passenger terminal which opened in 2013. The airport is fairly small and offers only a limited range of facilities and amenities, but you will still find a couple of places to eat and drink as well as convenience stores to pick up any basics. The airport only relatively recently commenced commercial flights in September 2017, so plenty more routes may open up in the future. It is not currently possible to travel directly from the UAE to Jaisalmer, but it will be possible to journey with just a single connecting flight.
Arriving in Jaisalmer
Upon arrival in Jaisalmer you’ll be able to catch a taxi from just outside the terminal building to reach your destination directly. You can visit one of the taxi counters inside the airport to pay for your journey beforehand, or you may prefer to catch a local auto-rickshaw for a cheaper way to reach your destination. Alternatively, private transfer companies are available and you can also get in touch with your hotel which may be able to provide their own shuttle service.
