How to Get to Yelahanka Air Force station in Bengaluru?

Yelahanka Air Force station is 25 kilometres from Bangalore city, towards the Kempegowda International Airport. And by road, the journey takes up to 40 to 45 minutes. I highly recommend taking either a taxi (Uber or Ola) or public transportation as parking your vehicle at the event is time consuming and stressful.

  • If you take your vehicle, note that there are shuttle buses between the parking lot and the main gate of the exhibition.
