    Is there an International Airport?
    I didn't think that there was an airport in Rajasthan at all and thought the nearest airport was in Delhi. Can someone please clarify whether the airport in Jaipur is international or domestic and whether it is operational or not.

    Yes there is an international airport in Jaipur and it is operational. It is a small airport and has a limited number of flights which come and go from the airport.
    Domestic destinations from the airport are Delhi, Udaipur, Bangaluru, Pune, Chennai, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai.
    International destinations are Sharjah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    There is an airport in Jaipur and it is called the "Jaipur International Airport." The airport is located in the Southern part of Sanganer, about 13 kms from the city of Jaipur. It was just in the year 2009 when it was granted an international status. It is the one and only airport in Rajasthan. The civil part of the airport can accommodate up to 14 aircrafts and its new terminal building can accommodate up to 1,000 passengers at a time.

    The Jaipur International Airport was also named as the number one airport in a survey conducted by Airports Council International in 2012. Rightfully so, because it is complete with amenities like central heating/air conditioning, inclined baggage carousels, escalators, flight information display system, CCTV and a huge parking space. Shops and restaurants are also available inside the airport. For passengers with long waiting time between flights, the airport lounges can give them comfort.

    WiFi is also accessible through the airport. ATM facilities can also be found throughout the airport. For families with kids, childcare rooms are available. There's wheelchair access as well for specially abled individuals. Car transfers can also be arranged within the airport.

    There's also a bus station inside vicinity of the area. These buses can take you to nearby cities. Otherwise, the railway station is about 13 kms from the airport and it's easy to ride taxis/buses to reach it.
