.Surat Airport terminal building was newly built in the year 2009 in a Modular Structure concept, keeping in mind for future expansion/extensions. At that time, it was one of the latest & modern structure, with a full glass facade of the terminal Building.

Travel Advisory Notes:

Security-check timinigs & Baggage Policy: 

Most Airports & Airlines follow the 2 hours drill - 30 minutes for Boarding pass & Baggage Check-In, 45 minutes for security check & 45 minutes for Boarding & Gates close, prior to the flight departure time. While the Gate-Close timing is stringently followed by the Airlines with no exceptions made after the last 45 minutes time-slot is missed out; the 45 minutes time-slot is an average requirement for security-check and may vary in duration at different times & at different Airports.

For International flights the drill is extended up by 3 to 4 hours prior to flight departure time, keeping in mind the additional time required for the mandatory Customs & Immigration checks. 

Please refer to the specific requirements and announcements made by the Airport & Airlines, from time to time and flyers are advised to strictly adhere to them for their Check-In times & Baggage Policy. 


Althought the transportation facilities are constantly improving at the Airport with the increase in flight frequency and a larger footfall of passengers: however there is a very price prohibitive and unreliable service available at the airport for transportation for immediate need on landing at the Airport and to an extent, the same applies for reaching to the Airport from distant locations.

In the given situation it is best advised that prior travel arrangements, with proper due diligence, is made with the service providers to avoid any surprises & inconvenience. 

BRTS/SITILINK bus services is Now Available with limited frequency as per Flight Arrival Schedule. It picks up passengers from LHS of the Arrival Gate and drops till VR Mall ("Y"Junction) on Dumas Road. Passengers can change Bus here to connect with the rest of the city.
