Popular destinations from Chennai International Airport


Book flights to great cities around India, to the hippie haven of beachside Goa (GOI), the regal desert beauty of Jaipur (JAI), and the historic might of the Bengali city of Kolkata (CCU), where the Independence Movement for India took root. Best of all, each of these cities can be reached in one to three hours of flying.


Exploring destinations outside of the borders of India doesn’t have to mean sitting in a plane for long; a collection of three to five hours can lead you to Mauritius (MRU), a paradise that lies just off of the African coast. Or to Hong Kong (HKG), a destination on the other side of the world, which offers its visitors a chance to shop in palatial malls, lie on deserted beaches, ride rollercoasters in Disneyland, and visit important Buddhist temples.


However, if you want to fly to somewhere totally different, why not try London (LHR)? The British capital is a fantastic place for theatre lovers, history buffs, and shopping junkies. Of course, if you’ve dreamed of going to Germany to see where the Brothers Grimm got their inspiration, then spend time in the fairytale landscape of the Black Forest. To do so you will have to fly to Frankfurt (FRA), a city worth seeing in its own right, for its Old Town, its celebrated festivals, and its important business fairs.
