well connected to all major cities in India. "Pune's success story in information

Pune is well connected to all major citites in India. However it's
important to book early if you wish to get a good air deal. As for
trains, it's important to book early if you wish to get any reservation
at all. If you are traveling to Pune from out of India, it's best to
flight to Mumbai (Bombay) and then get to Pune by road. Pune has few
international flights, so getting a convenient flight and a good fare
is rather difficult. Mumbai to Pune should take you between 3 to 4
hours by road.
