Situated at 25 kms. east of the city and flying daily commercial flights that are connecting Garhwal region by air, the Jolly Grant is the one and only operational airport that is serving Dehradun city capital. This airport has made Dehradun accessible from any part of India by flight. This is also located close to Rishikesh so the tourists that are coming from all over the world to Dehradun would also like to visit Rishikesh. Various codes are provided to the airport from various airlines for IATA the code is DED, for ICAO the code is VIDN. This airport occupies a total of 42.08 acres land.
The Jolly Grant Airport has only one terminal and the floor area of this terminal is 249 sm. The airport is still with less facilities, only the check-in counter is there on the airport and the immigration counter and customs counter is not present at the airport. The other flaw on the airport is that there is no separate cargo terminal over there. The runway is very short though the Airport Authority has expanded this terminal now so it can handle the movements of Airbus A320s, Boeing 737s and other such aircrafts. It has been said that earlier this airport could handle only small aircrafts.
At present the Dehradun city has 64 helipads and out of them around 40 helipads is controlled by the State Government while 15 are still under construction and rest of them comes under Indo Tibetian Border Police Force (ITBPf).
