6 Stunning Airports In India That Put All Other Airports To Shame!
1. Agatti Airport, Lakshadweep
HolidayIQ Traveller Gautam Barman says, “Agatti is a small island and hence, one can enjoy the sea, the lagoons and the beach. You can go to Bangaram and enjoy a full day there. It is about an hour’s journey by boat. Make sure that the permit and formalities are taken care of beforehand.”
Surrounded by nothing but the Indian Ocean, the 4,000-foot-long Agatti Airport is so random and petite that it could pass off as a piece of a larger runway lost at sea. The airport is the only one in Lakshadweep - a Indian Union Territory comprising 36 exotic islands located off of the southwestern coast of India, and sits on the island of Agatti.
2. Lengpui Airport, Mizoram
HolidayIQ Traveller Dharmender Singh says, “The nearest airport to Mizoram is Lengpui airport. To enter Mizoram by any means inner line permit is required. At airport ILP counter is there were ILP is issued on arrival.”
The 2,500 metre runway of the Lengpui airport is unique as it has many hilly streams running underneath. The airport is one among the three airports in India that has a table top runway, which creates an optical illusion.
3. Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport, Leh
HolidayIQ Traveller Jayesh from Kolkata says, "Leh is beautiful and is known as the cold desert. Drass, the second coldest place in the world, and Khardungla, known as the world’s highest motorable road, are a must visit. Things that one should not miss while in Leh - Lamayuru, Thiksey Monastery, double-humped camels at Hunder, sand dunes, Diskit Monastery, Shyok River and shopping in Leh.”
Kushok Bakula Rimpochhe Airport is an airport in Leh. It's one of the highest airports in the world at 3,256 m (10,682 ft) above sea level.
4. Jubbarhatti Airport, Shimla
"The state, with many a snow-bound Himalayan peak, has some of the most spectacular landscapes in the country. It also has some very popular holiday resorts which are easily accessible. Apart from sightseeing, it offers immense scope for trekking, skiing and rafting. Shivalik, Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal are the major mountain ranges in the state," says HolidayIQ Traveller Peaceman Travel.
Shimla Airport is located in Jabarhatti, 22 kilometres from Shimla. The airport was constructed by cutting down a mountaintop and levelling the area to form the single runway. The small apron has space for two small aircrafts to park simultaneously.
5. Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport
It showcases to the world the beauty of Indian art and design. Unlike other museums, you would need an international air ticket to enter — this museum with nearly 7,000 artefacts, a 3 km-long art wall and works by over 1,500 artists, is actually housed inside an airport! Somewhere between check-in and baggage claim, Mumbai's new integrated terminal T2 shows off some of the best of Indian arts and craft to foreign visitors as well as Indians.
6. Dabolim Airport, Goa
