FAQs - booking India flights

  • Which holidays may affect flights to India?

    Several major holidays in India can have an impact on prices, passenger volume and flight availability. The main ones to be aware of are Diwali (held in October or November), Holi (held in February or March) and Eid al-Fitr (held in April or May). During and on either side of these national holidays, air travel can be more expensive and crowded than usual. To ensure you can find the flights you need between Australia and India, it’s recommended to book well in advance if you plan to travel during these times of the year.

  • Which airport should I arrive at to visit the Ajanta Caves?

    The Ajanta Caves are located in the Aurangabad District of Maharashtra state in India. A convenient place to fly into is Aurangabad Airport (IXU), a single-terminal domestic hub situated about 5.5 km from the centre of Aurangabad. Flights into the airport are generally serviced by Air India and Jet Airways. If this will be the first destination on your trip, note that most flights from Australia to Aurangabad come with at least one stop in Delhi along the way.

  • How can I bring a pet with me on my flight to India?

    Airlines operating flights to India and within the country generally accept pets. However, each airline has its own policies and fees, so contacting your airline is crucial to confirm. There are also strict rules for travelling with pets. Generally, only two pets are allowed per family, and dogs and cats must be microchipped and vaccinated, with all details recorded on a health certificate. Your veterinarian can advise you on the list of required vaccinations and provide the health certificate. You’ll also need to obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC). You’ll need photos of your pet from the front, side and of their full body. Since there are a lot of rules to follow, many people use a pet travel agent to make the process easier.

  • Which airport is close to the Taj Mahal?

    The Taj Mahal is in Agra, a city on the western border of Uttar Pradesh. Although Agra has its own airport, called Agra Airport (AGR) or Kheria Airport, it only offers limited domestic flights to and from other cities in India. An alternative option is to fly to New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport and then hire a car to reach Agra and visit the Taj Mahal. The distance between New Delhi Airport and Agra is approximately 230 km.

  • Do I need a visa to travel to India?

    Australian citizens and permanent residents are required to apply for an electronic visa before travelling to India. Once this has been successfully completed and you have received your visa a minimum of four days before your arrival, you will be able to stay in the country for up to 60 days. Your passport must be valid for the entirety of your trip, and sometimes it may even be required to prove its validity up to 3 months after your return date.

  • I would like to visit Kaziranga National Park. Which airport should I arrive at?

    The closest airport to Kaziranga National Park is Jorhat Airport (JRH), which is approximately a 2h 30min drive away. It is also possible to fly into Tezpur Airport (TEZ) or Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (GAU), both of which are around a 3h drive from the park.

Read more about Singapore Airlines
Cons: "I have encountered missing documents before departure in Singapore to KL. The check in crews very helpful, their knowledge to assist me boarding smoothly. My appreciation towards all crews who have helped me this morning ( SQ106) Big THANK YOU to you ALL."
Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "If they could serve a light snack would be good"
Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I decreased my time in Singapore"
Pros: "crew were very friendly and helpful. flight was one of the best i’ve had"
Cons: "boarding at sydney was very confusing"
Cons: "For better leg room in business class go for the bulkhead seats"
Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"
Cons: "Entertainment score is not meaningful because of the short flight time."
Pros: "The customer service at the Check-in, the flight attendants, the movies and the meals. More than my expectations! Will definitely use Singapore Air in the future in my travelings! Will recommend it to my circle of friends and relatives! Thank you very much. You are the best airline I've used since 1976!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Luggages weren’t transferred to Bali together with my flight. Gate check in stroller was sent to baggage claim without notification. I was waiting the whole time after exiting plane."

Lunch Food was tasteful and had variety. Seat was comfortable. However, when I was reserving my seats during booking, the seat configuration showed was 3-3-3, but when I boarded it was a 2-4-2 configuration? Also during booking, I had also bought travel insurance together with my TG booking. However there was no confirmation of my purchase from Allianz and TG. After several emails with TG contact, sales, reservation and Allianz was i able to confirm my insurance purchase. When the policy was issued, the birth dates of me and my wife were wrongly stated and I had to go through another round of emails with Allianz to get it corrected. Otherwise any claims would be void! It was indeed not a very good booking experience!

Efficient like all the other flights with them. An outstanding budget airline!

Cons: "Allow passengers to select their seats when paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Best flight of my life. The put every airline to shame. I wish they did flight service to denver! I booked our next vacation with them today!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Terrible business class seats that are 10-15 years old. Have to take a bus to the gate in Bangkok. It’s 2019. We should have lie flat seats, not angled."
Cons: "Waited 45 minutes for a bus from a remote gate without any crew anniucmwnts. A total shambles as one or two buses did a 20 minute+ circuit to offload the plane."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "D.own graded from firstBusiness Class lounge is tired and over crowded. Aircraft cabin was getting old. Sound on IFE was faulty and unusable and no alternative seats were available. Food was ok could be better. Would not choose Thai for businesses class if there was another airline to choose from."
Cons: "N/A: very professional crew! The cabin remained clean for the entire duration of each of my 11 hour flights."
Cons: "Krabi airport is terrible. Cramped waiting area. Boarding gates too narrow for capacity. Aircon not coping. Worst flight information I have ever encountered."
Pros: "I didn’t like the seat belt it looks like a car seat belt not comfortable. The food and the service was excellent"
Cons: "The WiFi"

Prompt and efficient boarding. New MH-awards streaming worked first time on my personal device.

Pros: "The staff was really nice when I asked for the green tea they make sure you get it"
Pros: "Crew were good. Good food."
Cons: "For some reason, the seat was very uncomfortable. Rather hard with little cushion."
Cons: "There were no vegan options available. I think that was my fault though because I did not set one up in advance. Would be nice if they offered one anyhow."
Pros: "Because I had missed my original connecting flight, the airlines booked me at an overnight hotel and my new flight seat number was premium economy. This was fine in the end, but in the moment I practically cried."
Cons: "Again, not being delayed and having to miss my original connecting flight would have been best."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Sadly one passenger in front of me talked loudly, for 7 hours straight, took an hour to sleep then talked again for the remaining 5 hours. Not airline fault"
Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the in-flight entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The crew shouldn’t assume that an Asian person is Vietnamese just because they boarded from Vietnam. The vegetarian door was awful."
Pros: "There was a hot meal on this 1.5 hour hop from Kota Kinabalu to Kuching"
Cons: "The seats on the 737-800 have quite limited legroom"
Cons: "Feel airline maintenance is slipping second flight in a week where they have tv trouble"

It would have been nice if I could have actually travelled to Perth. I injured my back and was unable to fly. Scoot refused to change my ticket saying it was not flexible. However I purchased the ticket through MyTrip and it was flexible. MyTrip wanted to charge me an extra $271 to change to a ticket that was only listed as $217. Never again will I fly Scoot or book through MyTrip

Connection flights are smooth, both flight takeoff arrive on time, that will be the best u can expect. Food no order, service no complain, entertainment not seen, cleanliness can be improve.

U could offer everyone a drink ,juice or water.. coffe or tea ...ur air craft isn't a flea market ,where someone has to buy a tea or water!!

Extra luggage after you purchase 1 is gonna jacked u up to 800sgd which is so up to the hook... you could buy 3 round trips ticket on that price.. im so disappointed.. im not gonna choose this airline anymore.. horrible experience...

Cons: "arrived one hour before flight, all counter staff had disappeared. On-line check-in was not available as an option, could not get checked in and as a result missed my flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Please be punctual if can’t be earlier."
Pros: "Air Crew was polite. Ground crew was the slowest and most inefficient group of people I've witnessed. There'd be 3 people working, but 2 of them would be talking to each other, letting the queues build up."
Cons: "Ground experience was pretty terrible at the airport. Most likely I'd avoid flying through here again."
Pros: "Crew were good."
Cons: "I paid for priority boarding but could not find the queue easily to check in as well as there was no priority boarding line up during boarding. My seat did not decline at all. I paid for a window seat but got a completely blank wall. Flights were late."
Pros: "Not sure if I have much trust in the crew. Most of the female crew would walk past passengers who had their seats reclined or in the toilets and other situations and wouldn’t notice (during take off and landing) and the guy would come past later and do her job for them. Ground staff in Bangkok"
Pros: "The food was good. The service very good. Check in was so fast."
Cons: "Internet charge was very expensive and electrical outlet could not hold my charger. It kept falling out"

Flight was canceled. Rebooked on the next day’s flight. Experience at airport to rebook was awful. Entertainment system did not work on rebooked flight.

No organized boarding procedure and TV screens in most of the seats didnt work. For a 14 and half hour flight, without any entertainment made it much worse. Recliners in the seats were not working properly.

The Flight was delayed. They didn't notify. I was stranded, and was roaming here and there with my hand luggage at the Delhi Airport. After 2 long hours, someone finally found to escort me out of the airport to the hotel. Even at the hotel, we had issues with food bill payments. The hotel AC didn't work. The hotel bathroom was leaking of water. The hotel fridge didn't work. In the airlines, the entertainment system didn't work. Everything was self-service. The flight was old and shaky. This is the most horrible experience in any airline whatsoever. Despite being a patriotic Indian, I have blacklisted Air India from my future travels.

Pros: "The crew was really good. They were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment can be better. No latest English options. Also, inflight wifi would be a really good idea as well."
Pros: "Flight not full"
Cons: "Rude flight attendants. Poor service. Late flight. Poor food. Dehydration. Poor drinks. Poor entertainment."
Cons: "Never ever travel by this airline. The flight was delayed by three hours and no one at the at airport was available from Air India to at least tell us when it going to fly.Despite having a business class ticket we were made to stand for three hours and no reason was given for the delay. No question"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lines at check in counters were too long and there were less number of CSRs available. It took me 2 hours 30 minutes to check-in and get boarding passes. Same thing happened for the bag drop line and it took 1 hour 30 minutes"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Seating could be better. I was stuffed to the middle seat."
Pros: "Food was good and service was excellent by the hostess"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall. Food was ok. It used to be better in the past."
Cons: "entertainment was not working with few head phones on different seats. Ground staff can be more organised in traffic management at the time of boarding the plane. Different staff was giving different instructions aggravating the passengers and the staff members in return."
