If you wonder why you can’t find Kota Airport in the list of airports in Rajasthan, it’s because of its decreased demand in the wake of increased usage of railway facilities. Surprisingly, no flight has been scheduled from Kota airport since 1997. But the government still spends money on maintaining the airport although clearly there is no return on investment.

Airport code: KTU

Location: Jhalawar Road, Kota Airport Area, Gumanpura, Kota, Rajasthan 324007
