Is their a flight from Udaipur to Agra?

I am having a lot of trouble finding a flight into Agra? Is there an airline that flys there any longer? I am trying to avoid some of the longer drives because our time is a bit limited.

Thanks so much for your advice.

The only airline that flies into Agra is Indian Airlines. I looked at their website, and there is no non-stop service between Udaipur and Agra, you have to transit through Delhi. The whole journey will take about 5 hours. However, flying is much faster than driving or taking the train, so it is probably worth it. Website for Indian Airlines is indian-airlines.nic.in (Not to be confused with Air India, which is international flights only.)

Actually also consider Indian airlines on time recodrd which isn't too good. Once we flew from Delhi to Jaipur then had a 3 hr. drive to my wifes home. A train takes 8 hrs. from Delhi to her town. IA was 4 hrs. late leaving so what did we save? At least the trains are more reliable and service on IA is spotty.

I agree that IA is not the first choice of airlines, but Jet Airways does not service either place. A train will take 12-15 hours or more and require changes.

I believe the flight out of Udaipur is at 7:30 am, so Ladia has a fighting chance of leaving on time, as it is the first flight of the day and presumably the plane has been there overnight....

Your best option is probably a flight Udaipur Delhi and then by road from delhi to Agra. The distance is short and then you can use the same car in Agra and perhaps to get back to Delhi again as that is likely to be your best hub. Given check in times, airport distances from cities, potential delays a car journey Del-Agra makes a lot of sense. Also, is just 2.5-3 hrs with a good driver. Tell me if you need help with a car booking.
