Jaisalmer Airport

Hi

My wife and I are planning to go to India in early November. We only have two weeks and would like to see as much as we can. We heard Jaisalmer airport may be open to the public sometime in the coming months. Has anyone heard on the status on when it plans to open?

Thanks

Hi Hibda,

You would have to wait for it a li'l longer. By the reports the Airport is slated to open in 2013. The work is proceeding in full swing. There might be chances of it coming up soon. But these are chances only. Hence please do look up for other modes of transportation for your early November travel!

Take care,

SwK!

mystic is right about the airport and I expect also in October 2013.

Nearest airport is jodhpur and it is just 5 hours drive from jodhpur to jaisalmer.

you can travel by train and best is to do the tour in "palace on wheels"

its hardly take 5hr to 6 hrs in between if you wanna night stay than manvar is good option
