The busiest airport in the state of Goa, Goa International Airport, is a public territory at INS Hansa, an airstrip belonging to the Indian Navy. It is situated at Dabolim, close to Vasco da Gama. This airfield offers planned overseas and domestic flight facilities. Scheduled flights are available to overseas destinations in the Middle East such as Dubai, Doha, Sharjah as well as Kuwait. The airlines that operate from Goa to these destinations are Air India, Air Arabia, Indigo, GoAir, Jet Airways, SpiceJet, Qatar Airways and JetKonnect.
The Dabolim Airport takes care of a considerable number of chartered flights in the ‘winter months. Flights from Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia and the Netherlands arrive particularly between November and May. Flight operators from Europe such as Thomson Airways, Monarch Airlines, Condor, Thomas Cook Airlines, and Arkefly provide a number of chartered flights along with other operators.
Approximately 700 overseas charter flights depart from Goa every year and they comprise about 90% of foreign chartered traveler flights in the country. It is projected that chartered flights bring around 150-200 thousand foreign travelers to Dabolim.
The majority of areas in Goa are well joined with roadways. The public transportation system in Goa is mostly dependent on privately operated buses joining the important towns with the countryside places. The Kadamba Transport Corporation has the responsibility of running government buses on key itineraries such as routes including the Margao-Panjim itinerary along with certain isolated areas in Goa. There are 15 bus stations under the Kadamba Transport Corporation, 4 terminuses, a Head Office at Porvorim and a Central Workshop at Porvorim. In big cities like Margao and Panjim, you can avail intra-city bus services. Nonetheless, public transportation system in the entire state still requires a lot of improvement, and the local people rely significantly on their own vehicles, normally family cars and motor-cycles.
There are two railway tracks in Goa. The first is operated by the Konkan Railway and the second one by the South Western Railway. The track operated by the South Western Railway was set up in the British period and it joined the harbor settlement of Vasco da Gama with Hubli and Belgaum (Karnataka), via Margao. In the 90s, the Konkan Railway track was set up and it moves equidistant to the shoreline, joining key cities on the shores in the west.
