Kannur International Airport authorities have requested Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation for Flybus service from Mysuru, Virajpet and Madikeri to the Kannur airport. The bus connectivity will help the flyers from Mysuru and Kodagu regions.

Kannur Airport Fly Bus

Kannur airport is situated at a distance of 200 km from Mysuru. The other alternative for the flyers from Mysuru is Kempegowda International Airport Ltd (KIAL) located in the outskirts of Bengaluru, which is 185 km away from the region. The road journey to Kannur is less cumbersome than the one to KIAL, according to sources. The roadway to KIAL has to depend on Bengaluru-Mysuru highway before navigating through the traffic-dense roads of Bengaluru city, which makes the journey longer.
