The busiest times of the year to book your flights to Ahmedabad are from November to February. The weather is hot and sunny making it ideal to explore everything that Ahmedabad has to offer. In January there is the annual International Kite Festival which is a spectacular scene as hundreds of colourful kites take over the sky. Make sure you book your flights to Ahmedabad at least a couple of months in advance if you plan to go during this peak season. You’ll also find it harder to secure cheap accommodation when compared to the rest of the year, so make sure everything is booked as soon as you can for the best savings.
The off peak season runs for half of the year due to the extreme high temperatures from March to June and then the torrential rains from July to September. That said you can find cheap flights to Ahmedabad during these months and if you can deal with the heat you can still have a pleasant stay. You’ll also have a chance to better immerse yourself within the traditional events which occur through the year.
It’s wise to book your flights to Ahmedabad at least 2 or 3 months in advance if you can, or if you have the flexibility then book even earlier than that. Being flexible offers you the cheapest flights to Ahmedabad as you can pick and choose the best dates. It also means you can decide which events or festivals you want to try and attend or miss, so being flexible is a bonus. If you don’t have that luxury then make sure you secure your flight tickets as early as you possibly can, especially during festivals, as the price of flights to Ahmedabad will start to soar. It’s hard to know which side of the plane is best to sit on as your views depend on the wind and the weather. If you make sure you are not sitting directly next to a wing and that you have a window seat, you should be treated to a few great views throughout your flights to Ahmedabad though.

There are several airlines that operate flights to Ahmedabad such as Emirates, Air India and Qatar Airways. It’s hard to find the cheapest flights to Ahmedabad due to the lack of budget airlines available however if you search around several different dates it is still possible for a deal on your flight tickets. Emirates provide a very high level of comfort, service and great in-flight entertainment making them a fantastic choice. Qatar Airways are similar to Emirates in the service they offer but you might get slightly cheaper flights to Ahmedabad with them, but it all depends on the dates you want to travel.
The airport is around 15km from the city with the easiest method of transport to jump on the bus. It’s extremely cheap but can be crowded and uncomfortable so if you have lots of luggage it might be better to get a taxi. Taxis are available from outside of the airport but make sure you agree a price with them before you get in. There is a prepaid booth outside of the arrival Terminals so you are best using that rather than just approaching random cabs. Lastly you could get a taxi to the train station which is 8km from the airport, and then from there jump on the train to the city centre.
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, also called Ahmedabad Airport, is located a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Ahmedabad city in the Indian state of Gujarat, serving the cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. It is the gateway to India’s sixth-largest city and the fascinating state of Gujarat.
The airport includes four terminals; the International Terminal (Terminal 2) was modelled on Singapore’s award-winning Changi Airport and opened in September 2010. The roofline of this terminal resembles the kites flown on the banks of the Sabarmati River during the annual kite festival in January.
Ahmedabad Airport mainly serves domestic air traffic, with low-cost carriers such as SpiceJet, Jet Airways, IndiGo and Kingfisher offering inexpensive flights to Ahmedabad International Airport from cities such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Jaipur.

The airport is particularly busy before and after the Hajj period (which occurs in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar, differing slightly every year), when the older Terminal 3 is opened for secondary traffic.
