A free airport shuttle bus, available from designated stops at each terminal, regularly transports passengers between the airport and the metro station. From the metro station, you can then make your way to your final destination in the city.
  • The app Ola, which is similar in concept to Uber, enables users to access special cabs. Kiosks at Chennai International Airport allow travellers to use this service without having to download the app.
  • If you want to hire a car for your stay in Chennai, it is more expensive to hire from the airport. A more economical option is to book online prior to departure. Most car hire companies have a meet-and-greet service, which can meet you at the airport and arrange for you to pick up your car.

Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."
Pros: "I had a great time. The best part was that my luggage reached on time!! Thank you!"
Cons: "I carried the same exact baggage from my SFO-DXB flight into DXB-MAA flight but was still charged excess baggage. Even after being asked to checkin my luggage I found that I could carry it in and there was more than enough space to accomodate everyone."
Pros: "Seat was fixed for such a long flight it is hazardous to the spine ."
Cons: "Allow the seat to slightly recline like any other airline"
Pros: "The crew were superlative."
Cons: "The seat folded to a flat bed, yet the boulder area remained raised, making the comfort level for a tall person, somewhat rest cited. My neck really quite sore as a result. Was an old plane tho, and the controls for movies , seats etc were archaic"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."
Pros: "Seating and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Hindu Non vegetarian meals could have been better"
Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfort, amenities"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "Bar in business class"
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."
Pros: "Excellent service by staff.Food is superb. Overall happy experience."
Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "During initial boarding at IAD our carry on baggage was ok. But boarding at Dubai there was carry-on baggage weight check and we had to pay additional $200. And then our baggage was then checked in. Seemed to be totally unethical."
Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Cons: "Flight was 15 hours long. Vegetarian food is not provided. We were unable to select food options online before boarding."

Pros: "Overall it was excellent."

Pros: "Aisle seat makes Emirates Economy 10-across 3-4-3 layout more bearable than if in middle seat (especially avoid seats E & F unless you are thin + narrowbodied). Vegetarian Oriental meal was great, unlike on Chicago to Dubai flight. But stick with Asian vegetarian to get extra cheese + crackers, sauces, dressing."
Cons: "Gate entry + boarding process started too late, so we were stuck in a long, slow line. It got worse when 2 passengers' documents had complications, because Emirates staff did not ask them to step aside and wait for the rest of us to go first. Seriously limited overhead-bin space turned out to be another irritating problem resulting from this high-density, 10-across 777 Economy configuration. And staff forgot to give all of us the correct immigration forms for India, creating further headaches for us after deplaning."
Pros: "The snacks were nice and the crew was nice"
Cons: "Boarding was TERRIBLE!! Everyone was rushing the podium and overwhelming the employees!! Basically the employees could not control the crowd. Having lanes, or signs in multiple languages for boarding zones would be helpful"

Cons: "Not sure why but the crew seemed a little grumpy today. In my experience, this is very unusual for Thai airways staff. Food was nice but not quite up to usual standard."

Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."

Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system didn't worked half of flight, gate in BKK at end of airport (long walk)"
Cons: "Late departing, no gate, waiting, immigration jammed. Overall very bad."

Cons: "3X3X3 plane configuration is my least favorite."
Pros: "Business class on this short haul flight was fantastic, but sadly I don’t think this is the normal route it will take as I think they were testing it. If you can get one of these on long haul they are a very nice plane, individual compartments and some very modern touches. Windows darken without blinds, loads of space in your compartment and food was good even as just a snack."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like and if Thai Air have these rolling out for long haul I’ll definitely look at them against"
Cons: "Also, plane deplaned by stairs and buses though there were many empty gates and jetways."
Cons: "Flight from koh samui to bkk cancelled and has to spend 2 hours on phone to arrange another flight. Catamaran gave me the wrong phone number for calling thai airways. Thai airways/vayama had originally booked me on another flight without confirming it would have been ok. Terrible in flight service especially on way back."
Pros: "They maintained darkness inside the cabin, thus I could relax well."
Cons: "Food was not good, also they served dinner at 5 pm which was very early for me. I had late lunch at 1:30 and was not expecting dinner at 5 pm. I did not feel hungry and so refused the meal. Unfortunately they served only a cup cake later in the evening. It was a 6 hour flight, thus a small cup cake late in the evening did not suffice."
Pros: "Ground Staff"
Cons: "Food Service. So so inflight crew service"
Cons: "Outdated Entertrainment system... btw, no entertainment system... safety video had so many hiccups, need to restart multiple times. First flight which did not have either Pepsi or Coke products. Only carbonated drink available is spirite.. very disappointed. Crew was not friendly.. Even when the wish for entry or say bye, attitude and face they make towards Indian looking people was very unacceptable."

Cons: "seat reclination and shape were not so comfortable, PTV was old and not sharp"
Pros: "did not really like anything very much unfortunately"
Cons: "the plane was old, it had no windows on the right hand side in business class, the food in business class was terrible and the service was not warm or hospitable. they only gave me one glass of wine with my dinner and did not ask if i wanted a refill."
Pros: "Good friendly staff"
Pros: "fligth was great, seat good, meal good, etc"
Cons: "our stewardess was almost rude, noisy, waking people up on purpose during clearing up of diner etc. i would not want her to keep my cell if i was a detainee.. too bad because all the rest was great."

Cons: "No"
Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."

It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"
Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us"
Cons: "Extremely small space, knees against seat in front, I am only 6 ft tall."
Pros: "The food & beverage selection"

Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."

Cons: "Friendly and professional staff. Boarding process was smooth. Did not expect any refreshments for a 1 hour flight. What was given was not that good."
Pros: "Super friendly and professional crew, clean airplane and great entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding in Colombo was typical for a lot of these airports I guess but I hate it. Go outside, cram in a bus, drive to the airplane and everyone fights to get in at once. Talking about an Airbus 330-300. Took an eternity to load"
Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
Cons: "The boarding pass checker at the gate was all grumpy! Do folks in South Asia lose anything if they smile and greet a passenger? Perhaps she hates her job?!"

I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."
