But foreign nationals need to obtain these permissions and carry documental proofs while travelling. Indians are also required to carry the documents supporting their nationality. Being an island, Andaman is connected with India through sea and air routes only. The airport is located at Port Blair and there are direct flights from Kolkata, Chennai and Vishakhapatnam. Air India, Jet Airways, Go Air and Spice Jet airlines offer their services here. Connecting flights are also available from Delhi and other cities of India to this airport. There are no direct international flights available to this place.

The distance of airport at Port Blair, from Andaman and Nicobar Islands is 31 kms. and it takes approximately 40 minutes to cover this distance by car.

Safety Suggestion: Flight travel is usually a safe and comfortable option, for travelling to Andaman islands. However, one needs to be cautious of the schedules of flights, during monsoon. Due to heavy rains and cloudy skies, flights are delayed or cancelled.

There are ferries and ships sailing to and from Port Blair, to many other port cities of India. The main port ship services from port cities of Kolkata, Chennai and Vishakhapatnam, sail to Port Blair.
