Cheap flights to India

India is a progressing country in terms of air travel. It also ranked third as the largest domestic aviation market in the world with millions of passengers flying around India over the years. The huge improvements and modernisation of the country’s airlines are good reasons to start grabbing cheap flights to India.

India’s primary airport, known to be the best in the country, is the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi. With renovated facilities and improved airport functionality, it lives up to its name of being the best aviation hub of India. The airport was given recognition for its eco-friendly services. It is also surrounded by new hotels and the Delhi Metro Airport Express train station for convenient access to downtown Delhi.

Other major airports in India include Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai and Chennai Anna International Airport in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

Why plan a trip to India

India is no doubt a country of wonders, spirituality and history. See the diverseness of India’s culture and religion by visiting its many unique spots.

Start your India trip by booking cheap flights to India’s Agra City. Witness the magnificent and well-known proof of love in Taj Mahal. Stand in awe at the magnificent details of marble carvings, Islamic design, and calligraphy. Not only is the view wonderful to look at, its history is also worth knowing. Indian architecture has always been so profound and to experience more of that, try visiting other structures in Agra. Few of which are the Agra Fort, Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah (Baby Taj Mahal), and the Mehtab Bagh Gardens.

Grab India flights to Mumbai and enter the Gateway of India. Once the tallest structure in the city, this 20th-century arch was originally built to honour the arrival of King George V and Queen Mary. It stands to prove the perfect combination of architecture and the Arabian Sea. The monument is set along another tourist attraction known for being the Miami of Mumbai – the Marine Drive. It is hailed as “The Queen’s Necklace” because of the stunning lights at night that create this image of a queen’s jewellery.

Want to taste the spice of native Indian cuisine? Brave the streets of New Delhi and try out some popular street foods like kokplatta (egg rolls), momos (dumplings), and if you are more into vegetables, samosa is definitely a must-try. All these are served with special sauces and fillings.

Best time to visit India

Summer, winter and monsoon are India’s three main seasons. It is a tropical country and summer can get relatively hot and dry. Delhi is best visited in the winter season, from October to March, for moderate temperatures. Taj Mahal can be quite foggy in the morning during this time of the year so it is best to visit in the late morning or afternoon. For the rest of the year, the most beautiful time to see the Taj Mahal is either at dawn or dusk. If you are planning to visit Mumbai, know that the city is monsoonal and the best time to go is from October to May, when there is little to no rain.

To immerse in the local culture, time your India flights during India’s major festivals such as the Diwali Festival and Holi Festival. Diwali Festival usually happens between mid-October and mid-November while the Holi Festival is generally celebrated from the end of February to early March.
