Aviation Wanderlust – 50 Airports In India That Connected Me To Beautiful Towns and Cities

Aviation Wanderlust is real! I love the sight of the aircraft, big or small, they are enchanting. I have as much interest in these modern big birds as I have in ancient history. Fortunately I could travel and traverse distances due to availability.Airports in India helped me explore new towns and cities. Here below is the list that took me on an Aviation Wanderlust trip. It is because of the UDAN scheme that made this possible. UDAN is Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik scheme founded by our Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modiji.  Airports in India - nashik Ozar airport

I have travelled to 49 different cities that are connected by airports in India.

The actual number of airports that my wanderlust took me through are 51 airports. (April 2021)

For me, founder of travel karmas  I made the most boarding/landing from the previously operated airports in the cities of Hyderabad and Bangalore.

This was the time when Bengaluru was not renamed Bangalore. Before the turn of the 21st century, there were only two airlines that offered flight services for domestic travellers, namely Indian Airlines our national carrier and the savvy cool Jet Airways! 

Airports in India - Bengaluru

My frequent travel began when I had to go on short trips/day trips to Bengaluru on business. All I had to do was get to the airport, which was 3 km away from home, buy the ticket at the counter outside and get into the NTR terminal at Begumpet airport. Those were the days when I took the humble Autorickshaw to drop me. It was so simple and easy. 

Even the business class cost was less than 4k, I recall that I paid around 3.5-3.75k for one way. And about 2k for the economy class.

Both flights served amazing breakfast and that meant my meal was sorted. I was Good to go as I was fuelled up for the day’s work ahead.
