Flying to Every State and Union Territory in India

I see you covered Haryana as well? Did you land there?

Unfortunately I struggled to find any commercial flights to any airports in Haryana (probably due to its close proximity to Delhi) although I may be wrong… But If Haryana does have an airport with commercial services then please let me know and I’ll try get a flight in!

Technically speaking, the UT of Chandigarh counts as Haryana (it’s the joint capital of Haryana and Punjab). And you could fly to Amritsar to complete Punjab.

Oh awesome! Thanks for the info, learn something new everyday! 😁

I already had Amritsar planned for Punjab, so I’m sure it would be harmless to get Chandigarh done! I’ll try fit it into the plan.

#3 - Gujarat 🇮🇳


Flight: SG3419 [A]

Route: Jaipur (VIJP) - Surat (VASU)

Aircraft: SpiceJet Dash-8 Q400

The next flight is to the state of Gujarat. Having already flown here, but to Ahmedabad, I decided to visit a smaller airport instead - Surat. However, despite having a small airport, Surat is indeed a large city. Located beside The Tapi River, the city is a commercial center for textiles and sometimes referred to as ‘the diamond city of the world’. The famous Surat Castle was built in the 1500s to defend the city against Portuguese Colonists and remains a popular tourist attraction to the city.

#4 - Goa 🇮🇳


Flight: SG3419 [B]

Route: Surat (VASU) - Goa (VOGO)

Aircraft: SpiceJet Dash-8 Q400

Goa is a true gem of India with coastlines stretching along The Arabian Sea. The former Portuguese Colony, despite being India’s smallest state by area, is instrumental to the economy, having the highest GDP per capita among all Indian states. Goa is visited by large numbers of international and domestic tourists each year because of its white-sand beaches and active nightlife! The famous Vindaloo Dish also originated from Goa, based on the Portuguese dish ‘carne de vinha d’alhos’, and is a delicacy enjoyed globally as a staple of curry house and Indian restaurant menus!

Diwali Special 🪔

#5 - Haryana 🇮🇳


Flight: 6E724

Route: Goa (VOGO) - Chandigarh (VICG)

Aircraft: IndiGo A320-200

First of all, a very happy and safe Diwali to everyone celebrating! Diwali ki Shubhkamnaye!

To celebrate today, I will be covering both the State of Haryana as well as the Union Territory of Chandigarh. Chandigarh is the shared capital of both Haryana and Punjab, however I will be covering Punjab at a later date, so just Haryana for now. Chandigarh was designed by the Swiss-French modernist architect, Le Corbusier and is known for its modernist buildings and gridlike street plan.

Hey @candrej - a small error…what you’ve marked in the map is the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Assam is the long, two-pronged-shaped state just south of that.

#8 - Mizoram 🇮🇳


Flight: 6E312

Named “the home of the highlanders”, Aizawl, is the capital of the north-eastern state of Mizoram. The city is located at approximately 3500ft above sea level and surrounded by beautiful hilly countryside. It is also home to the Mizo language, spoken in both Mizoram and parts of Myanmar (Burma). The state is rich in culture and famous for it’s handicrafts.

I would also just like to add that I’m extremely grateful for the support this thread has gained in the last two weeks since I posted, I appreciate it a lot! I’m going to be taking a short break from this topic for now as I do some flights in neighbouring Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal and to get the full experience of the subcontinent!
