By air - Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport, Kolkata serves as a departure point for flights to Port Blair with non-stop direct flights. Now, travelling to Andaman islands by air has been made simple and tiresome-free by flight services of Jet Airways and Air India covering only 2 hours 5 minutes in minimum and thus 1304 kilometres of aerial distance will be covered in maximum. It is better to avoid multi-stop Airways as although the rates will be lower, the time it will take to reach the first destination is more than 13 hours. There are almost 31 flights going to Port Blair from Kolkata including multi-stop and direct ones.
By ship- The longtime wish to conduct a voyage can be fulfilled by opting a passenger ship service from Kolkata Port to Port Blair owing to the presence of direct ships to Andaman. Kolkata, even being one of the fewer destination for a voyage to Andaman islands, the vessels, MV Nicobar and MV Akbar will take more timespan compared to ships from other destinations. Voyagers must spend more than 2 days in the ships before reaching Andaman and the calculated duration so far is 66 -70 hours of travel. Travellers with sea sickness must strictly avoid the voyage and if wishes so, the ticket can be booked for the return travel as the same vessel will take 2-4 days halt at Port Blair. Bookings must be done about 15 hours prior to travel and weather conditions can affect the commencement of the voyage.
By train- Owing to the absence of direct railway services to Andaman from Kolkata, the easiest and the most convenient way to reach the Andaman Islands from Kolkata is to board a flight while ship service is also available which requires 70 hours of travel time.
