Mangalore Airport Transportation

A popular airport due to its close access to the beach and sunrise views of the Arabian Sea, Mangalore International is the perfect introduction to a diverse landscape. Look forward to it all by booking the right ride for your adventure level, whether you’re wanting to delve into the eastern mountains with a private sedan or simply need a one-time ride to your hotel courtesy of a shared ride van.

IXE Transportation
With bus rides to the Central Railway Station and pre-paid taxis in the arrival hall, IXE Airport offers limited connectivity to downtown. Give yourself the gift of custom drop-offs by booking a shuttle of your own, going through either local sedan or taxi providers for the benefit of getting where you need to go on your own watch, whether it’s toward a beachside resort or unique all-in-one conference center.

Shared Ride Van
Make check-in a breeze by booking a room that can get you to your front door fast, the easiest route being a shared ride van from area shuttle providers. Perfect for the commitment-free at heart as well as those looking for a ride that can take care of excessive luggage, you’ll have nothing but smooth sailing ahead.

Private Van
Book a private van to get to know the area with heart, going with area shuttle providers to take charge of the day as own chauffeur, carrying up to a dozen passengers across eclectic waterside attractions ranging from Catholic churches in Mangal Nagar to old watchtowers that used to keep a lookout for enemy ships.

Private Sedan
Those looking to get a feel for Bangalore's quieter side should do so with a private sedan from local providers, the perfect lift for loners looking to drift or newlyweds interested in a picturesque vacation. From the quiet outskirts of Pilikula Nisargadhama scenic villages to hidden gems like the northern isolation of the Surathkal Beach, you can take as long as you want wherever you go.

Local Personal Drivers
Do as the locals do by getting a local personal driver help you with the flow, checking out downtown’s coolest beachside bars while looking forward to a classic late-night bite. Also perfect for finding the best natural wonders, from riverside lookouts to hidden beaches across India’s west coast, having advice with you at all times can be a good thing.

Private SUV
Reserve a private SUV with area companies to take care of everyone in the family, enjoying enough room for up to six passengers as well as limitless locales at an instant, from the astounding architecture of local temples & churches to super-sized shopping malls that welcome hours of idle play.

Taxi Cab
Time is money when you’re traveling on business, a tip that especially applies to taxis in major Indian cities. Enjoy the priceless gift of time by getting dropped off with ease, whether you’re heading to a big event at downtown’s Dr. T M A Pai International Convention Centre or the equally-popular Father Muller Convention Centre.

Stretched Limousine
Kick back in total relaxation with a stretched limousine to show you around, enjoying the opulent side of Mangalore by booking through local transfer companies, whether you’re looking forward to a bite at Palkhi Restaurant on the 3rd floor of the Tej Towers or interested in a fashionable flick at The Forum’s PVR Cinemas.

Chartered Bus
Huge groups exceeding a dozen passengers may need a chartered bus to get through their trip comfortably. See more by sticking together, enjoying a day at countless beaches that connect to downtown, or delve into expansive outskirts like the forested trails at Pilikula Arboretum, located on the far northeast side of town.

IXE Airport Terminals
A modern facility completed in 2010, IXE Airport is a single-passenger terminal with two floors that handle both domestic and international flights. Services/Amenities include: free Wi-Fi, shops, restaurants, English-speaking staff, VIP lounges, child care room/play area, currency exchange, luggage trolley, medical services, pharmacy, and an information desk.


Mangalore Airport Shuttles

Mangalore International is just far enough from downtown to where you can’t see it, offering a tranquil first impression and usually traffic-free atmosphere. Book a shuttle to get through it with even more ease, reserving with either area taxi or sedan providers to make arriving to hotel check-in a relaxing experience, also utilizing the helpful meet-and-greet for trips to the airport at the end of your trip.

Have your shuttle take you somewhere worth remembering by finding the best side of town to hang out in, whether you’re interested in a good balance of city and country in the Kavoor district or want total beachside isolation in Kulai. Get easy access to several portside restaurants and train stations by staying in the uptown neighborhood of Baikampady instead, or if you’re looking to stay closer to the city look into booking a room in the Kankanady neighborhood. Other popular options include waterside regions such as Bolar, Alake, and Bengre.

Sometimes the best way to keep up with the area is by keeping up with yourself first, starting with your shuttle reservation. Ensure you’ve got your shuttle confirmation saved on your phone as well as printed out in physical form, doing the same for hotel reservations in case you run into any issues. Do the opposite for your physical identification, taking scans of your driver’s license, passport, and other personal information, finally seeking last-minute advice from the on-site help desk at the airport.

About Mangalore International Airport
Less than 4 miles from downtown Mangalore, getting to the city center from the airport takes less than 10 minutes. Turn that time into a fraction by booking a room at a nearby airport hotel instead, choosing between scarce options like Saptagiri International Hotel, Iris Residency, and KEBEA Guest House, all of which are located south across Gurupura River. More upscale stays can be found on the southeast side, the most popular being River Roost Resorts due to its rustic ambiance, infinity pool, and free breakfast.

Let time at the airport pass with total ease by looking forward to on-site goodies, turning delays in hoorays at 3 different cafes, quick eats at Port Snacks, and full sit-down meals courtesy of Curry Kitchen. There are also a couple of duty-free shops, extensive department store space at Shoppers Stop, and simple souvenirs from the aptly named Gift Shop. And with the added bonus of casual art and free Wi-Fi, the airport creates a serene space perfect for as much focus as leisure.

Take advantage of Bangalore's northeast attractions if you’re staying close to the airport, choosing between at least a dozen temples in the immediate area or enjoying the vast parklands that make up Pikula Park, a small lakeside hangout known for its walking-distance access to the Pilikula Nisarga Dharma Garden, Pilikula Golf Club, and Manasa Water Park. Just around the corner are a few museums including the Pilikula Regional Science Center and the Pilikula Biological Park, which connects to an arboretum next door as well as the historic homes of Pilikula Heritage Village.

Mangalore Destinations
Known for its Spanish churches and seaport delights, Mangalore is one of Karnataka’s most tourist-friendly cities. Feel the wind in your hair as you take a ferry ride across the shores of the historic Sultan Battery, a watchtower by the bay that offers direct ferry access to the iconic strand of beaches, shops, and parks resting across the Gurupura River. Walk through ornate paths at Tannirbavi Tree Park when you cross, afterward ending the day with a vivid view at Sunset Point, located on the tip of the stretch toward the small neighborhood of Bengre. For plenty of beach to stretch your legs as well as the added absence of downtown’s noise, head to Panambur Beach on the north side, a beloved getaway close to an old lighthouse and train station.

For something further from the edge of the Arabian Sea and closer toward downtown, head to the Hampankatta district, popular for its street vendors in the Kudla Central Market as well as the ultra-sleek interior of City Centre Mall. Experience more balance of old and new by exploring the city’s many museums, whether it’s the culture, artifacts, and fossils at Aloyseum or the cherished exhibits on nation at Srimanthi Bai Memorial Government Museum. Take a break from the hustle of busy hotspots by enjoying the simplicity of Kadri Park, located just north of the city and home to winding paths and manicured lawns known to create peace and tranquility. Experience the best regional food before leaving, one of the most authentic hotspots being Village Restaurant on the far northwest side – for something closer to downtown and just as popular, head to Machali for fresh seafood in a busy setting instead.
