Digha doesn't have an airport of its own, and the closest airport is the Kolkata Airport. Airline carriers like Air India, IndiGo, Jet Airways, SpiceJet, and GoAir offers flights to important Indian cities like Aizawl, Agartala, Bangalore, Bagdogra, Delhi, Chennai, Dimapur, Dibrugarh, Gaya, Durgapur, Hyderabad, Guwahati, Bombay, Imphal, Silchar and Port Blair.
Nearest Airport: The Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport of Kolkata, 186 km from Digha, is the closest.
Safety Suggestion: Kolkata does not pose major challenges (like in the form of fog that reduces visibility to zero in Delhi). However, being a coastal town, it is affected by the sudden changes in the sea. Hence, keep track of the local news.
Mostly, tourists prefer to take the bus to reach Digha from Kolkata because of the short distance; hardly a five-hour drive from the Dharamtala bus station of Kolkata.
Journey Suggestion: Roads in West Bengal are far from reliable. However, the intended distance being less, the journey is still tolerable. Prefer taking a ride during the morning hours, when the highway traffic is less.
In 2004, Digha railway station started operations. It offers three trains to and from Howrah and one for Santragachi. Howrah is one of the most important stations of West Bengal and the country, and well-connected to most cities in, India. So you can take a connecting train to reach Digha.
