Darjeeling To Njp/Bagdogra (90 Kms/3-4 Hrs) so if the roads are okey you can start at around 7 am

Should take @ 4 hours.

better start at 6.30am or so.

Its better to wait an hour at airport than to be in panic if some small problem on way

Hello,

Now a days its very easy to reach Bagdogra airport from Darjeeling. There's one direct route from rohini road to bagdogra airport .no need to reach siliguri(Darjeeling more).It takes maximum 3 hours from Darjeeling.

Thank You

It recently took us 3 hours from Bagdogra to Darjeeling. This included our driver stopping for refreshments and his lunch!

3 hr is an ideal time,start any time between 6:30 and 7:00 and you would reach airport comfortably.

Yes it is only 90 kms and will be easily reached by 3 hours but when people have tight flight schedules we say 3-4 hours because sometimes there will be long unknown jam on the Rohini highway. So precautions are better then cure, I guess.

No share cab is available for Bagdogra. You can reach Siliguri by share vehicle then from there to Bagdogra by cab/auto.
