Flights To Chennai

As a real up-and-coming travel destination, Chennai (Madras) is southern India's largest city and the second-most important financial hub after Mumbai. Based off the Bay of Bengal on the Coromandel Coast, it's a city packed with gloriously long sandy beaches, parks, cultural attractions, historic landmarks, and interesting buildings. With numerous cheap flights to Chennai International Airport (MAA) available, many national airline carriers fly here direct. Don't delay on your next vacation!

Transportation from MAA

Onward travel for travelers off Chennai flights couldn't be easier. It's easy to find hotels close to Chennai International for maximum convenience. Chennai airport is on a major trunk road, the National Highway 45, while the Tirusulam railway station also serves the transportation airport hub. You can get pre-paid cabs 24 hours, with fares fixed by the government, so there's no haggling for a better deal. In the future, the Metro Rail System is set to link the airport with key points citywide. Flights to Chennai vacations leave holidaymakers spoiled for choice; attractions range from the Connemara Public Library to the Government Museum and the National Art Gallery. You can also stroll around one of the first British fortresses in India, Fort St George, founded back in 1639; today its museum houses many artifacts from the days of the British Raj. Or, have your fill of arts and crafts, shopping and parks - visit Guindy National Park with its endangered animal species, go on a lion or elephant safari in the local zoo, and see the critters at the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust.
