The Agartala airport is located about 12 km from the main city in Singerbhil. It connects to most major metros of the country like Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Chennai but only via Kolkata and Guwahati.

Nearest Airport: The nearest airport is the Imphal airport situated 570 km away. The Guwahati airport is a close second, at about 575 km.
Safety Suggestion: The most favorable time to visit Agartala is during the winters.

The winter months are the most enjoyable and by far the safest.
Regular and direct bus routes to Agartala are from Kolkata, Guwahati, Shillong and Silchar and are preferred by tourists and businessmen alike. The much-awaited Dhaka-Kolkata bus service has reduced the distance and duration between Kolkata and Agartala by almost half, as buses now travel via the neighboring country, Bangladesh.
Agartala is connected to Assam and other states via National Highway 44. Other well-known bus services that travel to and from the state capital city are KG Reliance Travels, Joy Ram Tours & Travels, Ezee Yatra Tours & Travels and Tripura State Transport buses.
Journey Suggestion: It takes about 24 hours to reach Agartala from Guwahati via Shillong (NH 44). Some of the rural areas are not safe to travel through after sunset, so keep that in mind. Road conditions are not the best in this locality, but it’s safe to travel to the city during the day.
One can travel to Agartala by train but be warned; it would take longer as the distance between Agartala and other cities are more. From Delhi, it takes about 28 hours (via Kolkata), while from Kolkata, it's about 12 hours.
