Located at a distance of 5 km from the city, this airport is also known as the Bodhgaya Airport, given that Lord Buddha attained enlightenment in this very city of Bihar. The second busiest airport in the state, next only to Patna, this airport witnesses heavy traffic due to a large number of devotes flying in and out of Gaya throughout the year.
The airport houses an integrated terminal, which serves both, domestic as well as international passengers. With a capacity to handle 250 passengers for arrivals and the same number of departures at any given time, the terminal is equipped with 5 check-in counters, 12 immigration counters and as many as 5 customs counters.
While the airport avails direct flights to Delhi and Varanasi, it offers indirect flight services to some of the major cities across India. In addition, it is also connected to numerous international destinations such as Kathmandu, Colombo, Bangkok and Paro amongst others.
