At Shivamogga, the newest airport in Karnataka was opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 27th february 2023.

 Shivamogga Airport, which cost Rs 450 crore to build, will improve air connectivity in central Karnataka. 

The Shivamogga airport’s lotus-shaped passenger terminal building can accommodate 300 passengers an hour. 

The Center’s UDAN programme, which aims to make air travel affordable for everyone, funded the construction of the brand-new domestic airport at Sogane in the Shivamogga district.

Since the airport’s opening, numerous advantages and exposures have been associated with it:

👉The Mangalore International Airport is the closest to Shimoga and is preferred by visitors. The airport serves several Indian cities, including Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Mumbai.

👉It is well connected to New Delhi and Mumbai by Jet Airlines, Air India, and Spice Jet.

👉Road travel takes about 5 hours to traverse the 280 Kilometers between Bangalore and Shimoga. But, it will now be finished in one hour.

👉The nearest railway station is Madgaon (MAO) Dist – SOUTH GOA (GOA), which is 228 kilometres away.

👉The opening of more than 1,000 new positions at airports will increase employment.

👉Major cities like Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore, Hubli, Davangere, and Bellary are all easily accessible by road from Shimoga. The city is traversed by two significant National Highways.

👉There are trains that run to and from Chennai, Bangalore, Mysore, Tirupati, and the city’s two railway stations, the main one of which is Shivmogga Town Railway Station.

The natural beauty of SHIVAMOGGA will also boost tourism. Here are a few of this location’s main attributes:
