  • 1. No tourist info available 2. No info on conduct of unloading and handing over of luggage. 3. Taxi people outside will charge you 10 times more than usual fare. I was travelling to Pithoragarh.. a fare is around 500-700₹ per person in a shared taxi (for alto which takes four passengers) I was quoted 7000/- I took a taxi for around 5-8 km till LalKuan (“had to pay” 200₹).. boarded a bus to Haldwani (15₹) Shared taxi(s) to all places are parked near bus stand. Take the rear exit of the bus stand, take first left & walk 700-800 Meters to a round about & voila ‘find taxis to wherever you want to go’ for a reasonable fare. 4. There’s no bus or auto stand outside the airport.. you’ll have to ask where autos or buses stop..(it’s 200meters to the left of the airport exit gate, infront of a tea stall)

  • Parking was Rs20/- and Waiting Room ticket was Rs50/-. The waiting room was nice; it had clean bathrooms, filtered water station (with disposable cups), about a dozen sofas/armchairs and most importantly air-conditioning. Staff were friendly and nice.

  • Direct flight by air india only from pantnagar to delhi

  • Small and homely!😘 Yes, yes, it was built specifically and only for the use of the Pant Nagar Agricultural University. Today it is a public one with very little change ☺
