Whether you’re hoping to lay eyes on the marble-white Taj Mahal or a golden tiger, kick-start your trip by flying into one of India’s major international airports. Browse Air India for direct flights from the US, and use IndiGo to hop from place to place within the southeast Asian nation.

India’s home to more than 20 international airports, which makes sense considering its population of nearly 1.4 billion people. Some of the most centrally located options for easy passage throughout India include:
Prepaid taxis are the most efficient way to get from India’s major airports to nearby metropolises. You’ll get where you’re going relatively quickly for a set number of rupees and won’t have to worry about getting on the wrong bus or train.
Other options for getting to nearby city centers from the nation’s largest airports include:
You can also hire a private, chauffeured car to get you from the airport to major cities. As an example, a business-class car will take you from DEL to central New Delhi for between $40 and $50.
Be sure to iron out postlanding details ahead of time so you know exactly how you’re getting from the airport to your final destination — especially if you’re relying on buses and trains to navigate the nation.
