Two airports lie closest to Shillong, the capital – Guwahati’s Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (114km) and Umroi (30km). Direct Air India flights from Kolkata to Umroi operate every day. Since there is limited connectivity to Umroi, most travellers rely on the Guwahati airport for connections from all major Indian cities and a wider choice of air carriers.
A helicopter service for Guwahati–Shillong (20min)–Tura (60min) operates on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
