  The nearest airport to HRI is Bamrauli Airport, Allahabad. There are a few flights to and from Allahabad. They are operated by Air India and Spicejet. More information can be obtained for example from merchant's website makemytrip.  The Allahabad airport is just 25 km away from HRI. Please note that the Allahabad airport is not a fully functional civilian airport and hence we cannot send the cab to the exit doors close to the arrival gate.
