Located at a short distance of 8 km from the city centre the Gorakhpur Airport of Uttar Pradesh is primarily operated under the aegis of the Indian Air Force station of Gorakhpur. The airport is essentially a civil air terminal. It is not only attached to the Air Force Station Range but also to a primary military and air force facility.
Spanning over an area of .071 acres, the airport avails direct flights to only one city, that it New Delhi. However, there is a large number of connecting flights from this airport that facilitate the connectivity to major cities like Hyderabad, Jabalpur, Chennai, Jaipur and Gaya amongst others.
Given its limited range of operations, the Gorakhpur Airport houses single terminal which serves arrivals as well as departures of domestic travellers.
