Arrival Departure of Pune International Airport

Pune Aerial View

As we flew over the Purna and Gautala wildlife sanctuaries, from Northern India, an instant adrenaline kicked-in, intensifying that very thought of approaching Pune, a new destination. The second-largest city of Western India synonymous with army headquarters, historic memorials, academic institutions, as well, Maharashtra’s most thriving business centers.

Pune Sahyadri Mountain Range

However, only from above the sky, you notice how ‘beautifully’ Pune is wrapped, in the arms of the magnificently-calming Sahyadri range of mountains. The ones that invite you to explore every corner of their existence.

Pune Airport

Before we could gather our thoughts, our excitement was accelerated by the landing announcement by the pilot. Immediately after, we descended from the heights exhibiting grand landscapes, to a runway nudging a series of synchronized arches and city lights.

Pune Airport Arrival

Welcome to Pune, we exclaimed! As we got off the plane, we were immediately-informed that due to its proximity to a military base, Pune airport does not allow professional photography.

Pune Airport Departure

At first glance, Pune International Airport is a compact airdrome facilitating select national and global flights. Unlike Mumbai airports, Pune airspace is easy to maneuver around as there’s very little to explore. (This applies to both arrivals and departure!) With a very few luggage belts, it’s evident that less number of flights arrive at this airbase.

As for departure Pune airport features a decent waiting-lounge and food court for the domestic passengers. On the other hand, international passengers get to access the designated lounge and services designed for global takeoffs. When we arrived at the airport, we were directed by the staff on our way out. And we boarded the flight before leaving Pune, we were informed of our gate number and waiting-area respectively. Please note this is a silent airport, therefore, it’s best to secure a seat close to the assigned gate number. From our experience, both the airline and the airport staff came across as friendly and polite.
