Airport Overview

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.
  • A 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.
