A new terminal building was inaugurated in February 2009. Located 20 km (12 mi) from Rishikesh, and 30 km (19 mi) from Haridwar, the airport allows easy access to the region. It is approximately a 20 minutes drive to Rishikesh and 45 minutes to Haridwar and Dehradun. Jolly Grant airport became the center of operations for rescue effort in evacuating pilgrims from Kedarnath and the surrounding pilgrimage sites during the 2013 Uttarakhand floods. The airport, which used to handle 16 flights a day, had to handle more than 100 daily aircraft movements on some days mostly comprising Indian Air Force aircraft, Chartered flights and private jets ferrying VIPs.

Dehra Dun

Dehradun /ˌdɛrəˈduːn/ is the capital city of the state of Uttarakhand in the northern part of India. Located in the Garhwal region, it lies 236 kilometres (147 mi) north of India's capital New Delhi and is one of the "Counter Magnets" of the National Capital Region (NCR) being developed as an alternative centre of growth to help ease the migration and population explosion in the Delhi metropolitan area. Dehradun is in the Doon Valley on the foothills of the Himalayas nestled between two of India's mightiest rivers — the Ganges on the east and the Yamuna on the west. The city is famous for its picturesque landscape and slightly milder climate and provides a gateway to the surrounding region. It is well connected and in proximity to popular Himalayan tourist destinations such as Mussoorie, and Auli and the Hindu holy cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh along with the Himalayan pilgrimage circuit of Chota Char Dham.
