Flights from Bengaluru (Bangalore)
Bengaluru International Airport
The Bengaluru International Airport has flights from Bengaluru that take off nearly every hour. Whether you want to find a domestic flight to somewhere in India or an international flight to Europe or another continent, you can book your flight through Orbitz.com. Orbitz has discounted flights from airlines like Go Air, Air China, or Silk Air. This recently updated airport makes it easier for travelers to get to their destinations. Because the airport is less than 30 minutes from downtown, you can get there quickly and easily.
Parking Your Own Car
Parking at the airport is easy because the lots are just a short walk from the departure terminal. There are three separate parking areas, and if you need long-term parking, you can pay one fee to park for a week or more. The airport even has long-term parking spots for those traveling for a month or longer, and it has its own discounted rates for frequent travelers.
Other Transportation Options
Driving to the airport is just one way to get to your flight. If you don't want to drive, you can take a cab or bus. The public buses make frequent stops at the airport throughout the day, and it only costs a few dollars to ride. Cab rides are more expensive, averaging around $15 or more, but the cab drops you off near the front of the terminal.
Restaurants at the Airport
The airport has a mixture of local restaurants and fast food chains that provide everything from cold drinks to full meals. Pizza Hut, Illy, Wangs, and Hatti Kaapi all have locations at the airport. When you book your low-fare ticket through Orbitz.com, you have more money to spend on food and other travel costs. No matter what flights from Bengaluru you need, Orbitz can help you get a seat.
Flights to Chennai
Chennai International Airport
The Chennai International Airport is located on Tirusulam, approximately 9 miles south of downtown Chennai. Numerous airlines service the airport, including British Airways, Air France, Air Canada and Korean Air. The Orbitz.com website makes it easy to find cheap flights to Chennai. The website searches flights from all available airlines to find the best deals on your air ticket.
Transportation From the Airport
The airport has bus services that run from the airport into the city center. Three rail lines also service the airport; however, the elevated trains make a circle around Chennai, so if you decide to travel via train, you'll have to switch to bus transportation once you get closer to the city. If you want access to your own vehicle, you can use the Orbitz.com website to arrange for a rental car.
Weather in Chennai
Chennai has a tropical climate. Temperatures average from the mid-80s to the high 90s throughout the year. While the weather sometimes gets cooler, it's rare for the city to see temperatures below 70º F. December and January are considered peak travel months because the weather isn't unbearably hot. However, you'll save money by traveling during the off-peak travel season. If you use Orbitz.com to plan your trip in February or March, you'll have nice weather and get better deals on your travel expenses.
