How to reach Andaman from Bangalore?

The most convenient and fastest way to reach Andaman is by boarding a direct flight to Port Blair. Other ways to arrive at the Islands are by sea route and through road. Since Andaman and Nicobar is a group of Islands, you are not going to find direct roadways or rail networks taking you to the preferred destination. So the most recommended mode of travel to arrive at the islands is by flight. Currently, 6 Indigo flights are plying between these destinations. Therefore, it could be much easier for you to book your flight tickets to Andaman rather than relying on any other modes of travel.

As mentioned above, when flying from Bangalore to Port Blair, you would most probably take 2 hours and 40 minutes. When travelling by train, you may first arrive at Chennai via Perambur and Royapuram. And on reaching Chennai, you may board a ferry to Port Blair sparing 2 days and 12 hours. However, they will only be available once a week. Furthermore, you also have got the option to make up to Chennai by roadways and then catching this ferry. Again that too will spare your 18 hours and 15 minutes to commute by bus up to Chennai.

Information about the Flight Tickets from Bangalore to Port Blair

Boarding a direct flight to Andaman from Bangalore is the most appropriate mode of travel. Currently, GoAir and Indigo are the two airline companies that offer direct flights to Andaman. By flying so, it would take 2 hours 35 minutes and 2 hours 10 minutes respectively. Meanwhile, other Airline companies such as Air India, SpiceJet and Vistara will be having a layover, making your air travel longer. Henceforth, it is always recommended to book direct flight tickets to Andaman, rather than the ones having layovers. In a week, there will be 3 flights that are plying in between Bangalore (BLR) to Port Blair (IXZ).

Moreover, if you are relying on Andaman tour packages with the inclusion of flight charges, we will be arranging your most appropriate direct flights without any time lags. So with that saved time, you could go for a more elaborate tour at the Andaman Islands. Therefore, following such a step will be always advised if you are on a honeymoon trip to the Islands. Even otherwise, when booking flights having a layover in other bigger Indian cities will incur extra charges unnecessarily. And if that is during peak seasons, it would turn out to be even more difficult to procure the tickets for Andaman.
