# Airport (Pre Paid taxis

Both the domestic and international terminals of Kolkata Airport
(Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport)
is situated further North/North-East of Salt Lake.
The Airport is more popularly known as Dum Dum
Airport. One has to take Nazrul Islam Sarani (erstwhile V.I.P. Road) or Jessore Road from the
airport to reach the city. The N.I. Sarani
actually originates from near the airport and leads to Ultadanga. The distance from
airport to Ultadanga through V.I.P. Road is around 8 K.M. Coming from airport, down the V.I.P. road towards Ultadanga, one has to pass through a place called "Kestopur"
(around 5 K.m. from the airport). After Kestopur, till Ultadanga (the
remaining 3 K.m.), one fringe of Salt Lake City runs parallel to V.I.P. road, de-marketed
by a running canal called "Kestopur
Canal". Unfortunately no bridge for vehicular traffic is in existence
to connect VIP road and Salt Lake over the Kestopur Canal. There are a few foot-bridges.
For this reason one has to go till Ultadanga
Crossing; form here you have to turn left to enter Salt Lake
Township. You have to
continue straight up to CAP ( Central Armed Police
Camp Office ) from where you turn left to
reach the road beside the canal. There-after turn right to reach the main
gate of SINP.
