Agra Airport: Cheap Flights, Tickets, and Travel Deals

Cheap Flights to Agra Airport

Located approximately 7 kilometres to the west of central Agra, Agra Airport (AGR) is both an Indian Air Force (IAF) base and a public air facility. It also serves as the main gateway to the region's most popular tourist attraction, the Taj Mahal. The airport handles a small number of scheduled passenger flights, most of which arrive from Khajuraho, New Delhi, and Varanasi. To find the cheapest available flights to Agra Airport, simply enter your departure airport and travel date into Skyscanner's flights search. If you haven't yet settled on a departure date, the Whole Month search feature can help you determine which dates have the lowest fares.

Best Time to Fly to Agra Airport

Agra's climate varies widely throughout the year, with periods of extremely hot weather (up to 35 degrees Celsius during the day), heavy fog, cool spells, and monsoon-like rain. The peak tourist seasons run from January to April and September through November, when rainfall levels are at their lowest and average daytime temperatures hover around a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius. These are also the months when airfares and accommodation rates are at their most expensive. The winter season (December and January) generally offers the lowest air ticket prices, but extreme fog and chilly night-time temperatures -- as low as 8 degrees Celsius -- can make visiting the city during these months unpleasant.

A good time to fly to Agra, if you want to enjoy ideal sightseeing weather and low airfares, is during the monsoon season (mid-July through August). While precipitation levels increase noticeably at this time of year, rainfall is typically limited to a couple of hours in the afternoon. Mornings are generally dry, and evening temperatures are pleasant -- especially after a heavy spell of rain. Once you've decided on a departure date, Skyscanner's Price Alert tool can help you monitor air ticket prices so that you can book the cheapest available flight to Agra Airport.
