With a population of more than three million people, the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India, can keep an airport extremely busy. Pune Airport handled over two million passengers between April 2010 and March 2011, with flights from Pune headed to both domestic and international destinations. It's located about 6.2 miles from the city. The airport also is a customs center, handling a large number of imports and exports. Airlines operating out of Pune include Air India, GoAir, IndiGo and Jet Airways. Reservations for low-cost seats on these airlines are available through Orbitz.com.
Two lots are available. The premium lot, located in front of the terminal, costs about $1 an hour, while the regular lot across the street costs about $0.70 an hour.
Prepaid taxi and rickshaw options are available. Taxi and rickshaw tickets can be purchased at Pune Station downtown or at the airport. Taxi fare is about $3. Bus service is also available from the city's center for a cost of up to $0.40, depending on where you begin the trip.

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.
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.
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.
Kapaleeshwar Temple, San Thome Church and Crocodile Bank are some of the popular attractions in Chennai. The Orbitz.com website does more than find cheap flights to Chennai. You can use the website to purchase tickets to area attractions or schedule guided tours of the city.
