Welcome to the Mangaluru International Airport!

The coastal city of Mangaluru is the western gateway to Karnataka. Regarded as Rome of the East & Jain Kashi of the South, Mangaluru also known as Kudla, Maikala, Kodiyal, Mangalapuram has emerged as a major centre for trade and commerce – not only for Karnataka but also for the neighboring states of Kerala and Goa.

Mangaluru attracts a good amount of tourist traffic from across India and overseas, who flock to the hill station of Coorg, beautiful beaches in coastal Karnataka and the dense National Park and trekking trails that the verdant Western Ghats nearby, offer. The city is a major pilgrim centre for all faiths and communities. Mangaluru is home to world renowned education and medical institutions and is known for its prowess as a major education, tourism, and healthcare hub.

The Adani group already has a significant presence in Karnataka and runs a large power station at Nandikoor in Udupi. The group by way of a Concession Agreement has been given yet another opportunity to serve the people of Karnataka by running the Mangaluru International Airport, Karnataka’s second largest. The passengers can expect high quality, comfort and safety from us.

Mangaluru is emerging as one of India’s largest cities in terms of trade. To serve the entrepreneurs of the state, Mangaluru Airport has commissioned its Integrated Cargo Terminal. Passengers have direct international connections to the Middle East with daily flights from the city. Direct connectivity to multiple domestic destinations too provides entrepreneurs a supply chain to export perishable products directly to their customers. This helps not only to increase opportunities for the trade and business community, but also offer new job opportunities to the local people.

Passengers can look forward to a seamless travel experience at the airport. The airport restaurants offering high quality food in safe and hygienic environment. For the convenience of our passengers, we have tied up with globally renowned retail stores – offering diverse options.

Technology will play a significant role going ahead to make the airport a truly international one. Technology will help our departing passengers to check-in and leave their baggage at the airline counters in a much faster and hassle-free manner. The arriving passengers can look forward to faster baggage collection and exit from the airport.
