How to Reach Andaman & Nicobar Islands

By Air:

The most convenient mode of reaching the Andaman and Nicobar Islands from the mainland of India is by air. Port Blair houses the airport serving the archipelago. There have been proposals for launching airline services from Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. This initiative can radically alter the scenario in the archipelago. During the peak time, it might be difficult for you to get tickets. The immigration rules are quite stringent for visitors who come to the place with no booked flights to return. Therefore, it is always prudent that you reserve a return ticket and modify the date of flight if you choose to stay for more time.

  • JetLite offers flights to Port Blair from Delhi via Kolkata and from Chennai.
  • From Kolkata, Delhi, and Chennai, Indian Airlines operate flights to Andaman.
  • Spicejet provides a direct flight to Port Blair from Chennai.
  • Daily flights are available from Go Airlines currently to Port Blair from Kolkata and from Delhi thru Kolkata.

In addition, there are other airlines offering cheap flights to Port Blair. The ticket rates differ drastically with date. Therefore, if you don’t have any scheduled itinerary, then you can save a lot of money by picking the correct day to fly. Booking beforehand many days prior to the tour as a minimum is suggested.
The airport in Port Blair has been named after Vinayak Damodar Savarkar or Vir Savarkar. It is perhaps one of the most old-fashioned and pleasant airports in the country. You will find a picturesque stand from which you can view the entire airport. During the nighttime, no flights are available since the whole area is entrusted to the Indian Air Force once it is 3 pm.

By Seaway:

You can board a ship from Chennai, Kolkata or Visakhapatnam to reach Port Blair. From Kolkata, it would require nearly four days to reach there. From Vizag, it requires less than 60 hours. This mode of transport is cost-effective. The amenities are quite ordinary nevertheless and a number of tourists choose to lie on the floor instead of the narrow berths. If the climate is inclement, then it might take 5 days to reach Andaman and there are different other factors as well.
