Several budget airlines use Chennai Airport as a hub, including IndieGo, a major domestic carrier. Chennai is also a focus city for Air India; this can have some advantages for travellers from Melbourne (MEL) flying Air India to other cities in India, then with IndieGo to Chennai.
There is a free shuttle bus which transports passengers between the airport and the metro station. There is also a bus route between the airport and Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus in the city centre. This is one of the most efficient options in terms of cost but can be very slow. A further complimentary shuttle service connects airline travellers to the railway system. Other options include a range of taxis, rickshaws and also kiosks at Terminal 1 and 3 enabling visitors to use the Ola Cabs ride-sharing system without downloading the app.
There are several hotels located within 4 km of Chennai International Airport. Several, such as the five-star Trident Hotel Chennai, are within walking distance, but all of the larger hotels in the area offer a meet-and-greet service on arrival and will transport you to your hotel.

Metro trains depart every 10min from the Airport Metro Station and tickets cost around ₹ 10–60 (A$ 0.20–1.20), depending on your ultimate destination.

The staff were excellent considering it was a jam packed flight. We had to wait nearly an hour for our baggage to appear on the carousel. That was a real shame.
Smooth takeoff and landing. Best service experience in all our travels over the years. Caring and attentive crew. Loved our flight to and fro.
Kayak company fake total I m not travel my payment reverse plzzz my credit card
Terrible experience. Unexpected wait due to staff delay was not taken proper care. Food inflight could be better where as flight attendees on flight hospitality was 100%
I changed the flight, there was restriction from srilanka to india - airline is not allowing me to board with that ticket, i changed the ticket for my travel. Thanks!
You get what you pay for. It’s functional and gets you from point A to B in good comfort. However, food options are limited and cash only, Crew is a hit and miss .. they get your attention if you reach out.
Good leg room ... air conditioning was a bit warm don't Book row 8 ... no windows
They got to the terminal late, with no one on the arriving flight, boarded us late, and left us sitting there for 2 hours before they got us off the ground. They knew they were going to be late, yet they never got an updated flight plan from their head office until long after the flight was supposed to leave. They could have cut the delay in half, of at least let us stay in the terminal. Really just horrible planning.
The worst kind of budget airline. To be honest....the plane was not that bad. Would have been good to have some food choices and some water. What was by far the worse is the passengers/customers that this airline attracts. Coughing and spluttering all over one another with no masks. Just disgusting. Pay for a better carrier and get a better class of passenger.
