Coorg doesn't have an airport!

However you have four cities in the region with airports – Mysore (Mysooru, MYQ), Mangalore (Mangalooru , IXE), Calicut ( Kozhikode, CCJ ) and Bangalore (Bengaluru ,BLR).

The closest possible airport is the one at Mysore , that is approximately 120 km (75 miles) east , in a bit southwardly direction.

However the well connected ( and the farthest ) is Bangalore with direct connectivity to almost all major airports in India. Of course both Mangalore and Calicut too are reasonably well connected with rest of the major airports in India.

Except Mysore, all the three are international airports.
