Flights to Jamshedpur

Flights to Jamshedpur allow the visitors reach this industrial town within a very short span of time. Air Deccan offers flights from Kolkata to Jamshedpur. The nearest air terminals that can be availed of by the travelers coming to Jamshedpur are Birsa Munda Airport and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Airport. While Birsa Munda Airport is located at Ranchi which is about 140 km away, the Kolkata Airport is at a distance of 226 km from Jamshedpur.

Tourists, who come to visit the famous Tata Steel Company of Jamshedpur from other parts of India, prefer to travel by flights. In the month of April, 2007, the Managing Director of Air Deccan announced plans for regular air travel options at Jamshedpur. Emphasizing on the tourism and industrial credibility of the town of Jamshedpur, Air Deccan MD declared that an operational air base will be provided to the people of Jamshedpur.

The Sonari Airport at Jamshedpur, till some years ago, used to offer flights to Kolkata. However, in recent years, people had to travel to Ranchi for availing air travel facilities. As such, railways have become an alternative for reaching Jamshedpur which consumes a lot of time. Specially those on a business trip to Jamshedpur with a tight schedule have to face major problems due to non-availability of regular flights.

However, with Air Deccan, air travel industry of Jamshedpur seems to gain a new momentum. This will, in near future, not only increase the number of visitors to Jamshedpur but also would lead to commercial prosperity of the town.
