It was hotter than a furnace! I was dripping in sweat.
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Veer Savarkar International Airport.
What to Expect
- A small single-terminal airport with clean facilities and minimal shopping and dining options. A new terminal is currently under construction, due to be completed sometime in 2018. Although the airport has limited flight service, the small terminal can get very crowded, with long, slow lines for airport check-in and security checkpoints.
- An hot and humid terminal, due to the tropical weather and lack of air-conditioning landside. Thankfully, the gated areas are air-conditioned, so let’s hope you can get through security quickly!
- Possible language barrier for English-speakers.
Where to Sleep
- As of February 2017, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Write a review to help future travellers!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

In this guide we may refer to locations as "landside" and "airside". Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
As of this update we were unable to confirm whether the airport has any first class or business lounges. If you know, please email us at email@example.com.
