IATA: JSA, ICAO: VIJR
Located about 17km from Jaisalmer City, Jaisalmer Airport operates as a civil enclave on an Indian Air Force base. It has a single runway of 2,700 meter long and 46 meter wide. Vayudoot and Kingfisher Airlines used to operate from this airport but now it has been closed.
Recently Airports Authority of India had contructed a new terminal which was completed in 2013, since Jaisalmer is an important tourist destination of Rajasthan and many tourist defy to visit due to lack of air services to Jaisalmer. This new terminal was sought to be open by August 2013 but yet have not been inaugrated.
