    I am from Chennai and wish to go to Shirdi with my mother who is a senior citizen.
    I have not traveled much and require some help in how to reach Shirdi from Chennai.

    As my mother will be with me, I am thinking that taking a flight would be the better option, as the duration will be short and more comfortable for her.

    If I decide to book a flight, what is the nearest airport to Shirdi?

    How would I reach Shirdi from the airport?

    How far would it be?

    You can fly to Pune and then rent a cab. The distance is about 200km and would involve a drive of about 4 hours.
