An Air Force Station was established in Gorakhpur in 1963 which was later extended for public transport. It has been named as Maha Yogi Gorakhnath Airport (after a renowned ascetic who was a prominent saint of the Nath Sampradaya.) There are daily flights which connect Gorakhpur to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata and other prominent Indian cities. The Centre is 55kms. away from the Airport.
An airstrip of UP Civil Aviation is situated in Kasya, 5kms away from Kushinagar, currently being developed as an International Airport by the Uttar Pradesh Government and the Government of India. This is expected to be operational by 2019 and will connect Kushinagar to the world.
