Sheikhul Aalam International Airport, also known as Srinagar International Airport, is an international airport which serves the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar. Owned by the Indian Air Force, Srinagar Airport also operates a civil enclave. In 2005, the airport was designated as an international airport, but as of 2016, no international flights, except hajj flights, are operated from the airport. Srinagar International Airport was used as a military base during the Indo-Pak War of 1947, Indo-Pak War of 1965, and the Kargil War of 1999. In 2009, Air India Express started weekly flights to Dubai, but due to low passenger demands the flights were suspended in 2010.
The picturesque scenery of Jammu and Kashmir is simply breath-taking. The summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar, is no less than a heavenly location. Places such as Dal Lake, Shalimar Bagh, Shankaracharya Temple, Chashme Shahi, Hari Parbat, Roza Bal, Kheer Bhawani, and Pari Mahal are some examples of the tourist appeal of Srinagar.
