Kerala is not anymore a distant tropical south-Indian state but had turned out to be one of the most happening tourist destinations of the entire country, thanks to the bewitching natural beauty it does possess. Their beauty does lie in most simple things around you, be it their traditional meals served in a long plantain leaf or the view of the houseboat constructed with jute. Kerala can be explored more by sojourning either to its verdant hill stations or to its golden shorelines. You are going to be astonished by the large clouds formations touching the foremost point of the hills. And when you are trekking up to its top, you will indeed feel like you are walking across the sky. Sip your hot cup of tea made with the leaves plucked from the vast expanse of plantations, while you are chilled by the sudden weather change in these hill stations.

The Fastest Way to Travel to Kerala from Delhi
There are mainly two ways to travel to Kerala from Delhi, namely by airways and railways. However, the fastest way to reach your destination is to catch a direct flight to Kerala. Numerous flights are plying between the capital city of the country to God’s own country. On the other hand, if you are planning for a budget trip, then you may opt for train journeys. This journey would let you explore different cultures by travelling through different states such as Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and various others. Currently around 9 trains are plying from Delhi to Trivandrum via Kochi. They do have three different routes to arrive at Kochi and two to arrive at Trivandrum. However, they would spare you around 1 day and 15 hours of travel, and sometimes, while travelling via Chennai and Bengaluru, it would be longer.
If you are travelling via tour packages with us, we will let you know more about this journey along with the best routes. Some of them would be with flight tickets and others without. When you are wishing to explore these many states by road trips, then you may opt for that. But it would turn out to be hectic, as it would take exactly 2 days to cover 2722 km. And it would not be recommended for a honeymoon trip to Kerala, or for travelling with kids. Henceforth, the most ideal way to traverse between these two distant destinations is by flight. However, you must ensure that it should not have layovers.
Important Information about Flights from Delhi to Kerala
As previously stated, direct flights from Delhi to Kerala would shorten your journey to barely 3 hours of journey. Then there would be slight variations depending on the stopover place you are choosing. If you are travelling to Kochi, then you could arrive at your destination after 3 hours and 15 minutes of flying. The aerial distances between the two are 2057km. Such services are provided by Air Asia Airlines, Indigo Airlines, Vistara and Go First Airlines. Otherwise, you may rely on connecting flights to Cochin International Airport (COK) with layovers at Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad or Mumbai.
Then yet another option is to arrive at Trivandrum International Airport (TRV) from Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi (DEL) after 3 hours and 30 minutes of the journey. Indigo Airlines, Vistara Airlines and Air India do provide the services of these direct flights. Here also, there are innumerable flights to arrive at the capital city of Kerala. But you have to book your flight tickets as early as two months before your travel to avoid those last-minute hassles. They are also going to cost you more than usual. Anyhow, once you had booked your tour packages with us, you would be suggested to inform us about your flight timings, so that we could plan your travel itinerary accordingly. For the well-planned trips such as your honeymoon or family trips, this would turn out to be fruitful.
