How to reach Puducherry

Puducherry's Domestic airport is connected to Bengaluru via daily flights - except for Wednesdays. The Air India flight departs Bengaluru at 3:35 pm and reaches Pondicherry at 4:35. The return flight departs at 4:55 and reaches at 5:55. This is a 1-hour nonstop flight. Travelers can also drive down from the Domestic & International airports in Chennai, Trichy, or Bengaluru. Both Chennai (151 km) and Trichy (203 km) are just a few hours by road, while Bangalore (307 km) is a little longer.

Daily connectivity to Villupuram, Chennai, and Tirupathi are available. While tri-weekly trains connect Pondicherry to Bangalore and Mumbai, other cities like Kolkatta, Bhubaneshwar, New Delhi, Mangalore, and Kanyakumari are connected by a weekly train.

The best connectivity is definitely by road. Multiple buses ply daily to and fro between Chennai and Bangalore. Pondy also offers overnighter luxury buses to Hyderabad (784 km) from hop-on-hop-off local buses to air-conditioned multi-axle luxury ones. Alternatively, one could just book a Taxi or coach for any of the above destinations.
