Boarding gates close 25 minutes prior to departure for our domestic flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
It's just like any railway station in india!!
Use toilets ONLY in case of dire emergency as they are filthy and stink to high heaven! Duty free is pretty Spartan and one tiny food shop that sells practically nothing. A disgrace of an airport.
Must visit: Vandalur Zoo, India's oldest public zoo & one of the largest in the subcontinent. It is home to more than 170 species of mammals, birds & reptiles.
Chennai International Airport is the primary airport serving southern Indian metropolis of Chennai.It is located on GST road in the neighbourhood of Tirusulam, within the Chennai Metropolitan Area.
Super filthy loos!
crappiest international airport i have ever seen in my entire life
Insufficient service in Tamil style. No restaurants, food court means one buffet, no seats. Insufficient seats on gate, smoking room announcing but does not exists and as usual, everything dirty...
culture shock when I first arrived there. nonetheless, an experience.
Do NOT enter the departure gate unless you're absolutely sure that you don't want to come out again. The security won't let you out.
Very badly maintained restrooms, and very less options to pass the time in the airport
Worst airport I've been to. Dirty toilets in the intl departure, bad interiors, horrible typos in signs, some of which are in Comic Sans. Overall, very depressing place.
Just like any other Railway Station in India -_-
Not clean, nothing much to eat!
There are at least two general access bars in the airport - one before check-in and the other after on the 3rd floor
Be prepared for heavy parking fees, which is not justified for the facilities provided
First time came to airport... Its beautiful...
Aargh! Get the tags right atleast. This is an airport. Not an airport gate!
May not be the world's worst major airport, but definitely top 10%.
Its equivalent to an air conditioned koyambedu bus stand now that the renovation is going on.
The new airport is coming sooooon... so all bad mouthers please wait...
Filthy, dirty airport. Inefficient. Smelly
Bad pick up n drop facility.
Go to the upper floors if you have time to spare. Nice views of the runway
Nightmare. That sums up my experience here.
The business class or exec lounge is pretty small !
The new airport terminal is badly planned. Has no good places to eat. Don't bother looking for a smoking lounge, there isn't one.
Horrible domestic airport. The place is dirty, only a few chairs to sit and dirty restrooms..the dirtiest airport i've seen so far.
Never travel Air India
This airport makes African airports look swanky. It is such a disgrace for a city like Chennai. You can smell the itinerary stench all the way to the check-in counters. Disgusting!!
Must be 45 minutes early for your flight. State law
Only buying books here makes sense!
Currently one of the worst in india. Pickup & drop off is a big hassel. No proper traffic or crowd management. However criminals like A.Raja get VIP treatment when he arrives & departs! Incredible Ind
Not much option for food. They sell sandwiTch here.. So scary.. Lol
Free wifi is available, just takes a while to get your login details & to finally login.
Even with the new terminal, the concept of Indian airports still makes this one of the worst airports in the world. Not being allowed to enter the terminal 3 hours before the flight is just a no-go.
Rude and bad service of imgration and airport crew..
New terminal is even worse than old terminal lol. I didn't know it could be possible. It's brand new and already everything is dirty and broken.
Newest terminal , empty... No shopping except a smll shop for liquor
Come prepared to get worst service. Still under construction and not up to the mark. Basic passenger services missing
Bad toilets, no maintenance, stinks and horrible experience .....
The new terminal is beautiful
Stinky airport. Air conditioner doesnt work. Toilets are dirty. Nothing to do here after security check.
Heavy traffic jam here;(
At domestic departures (Jet/AI/Spice), go up to the upper level security check, even if your gate is on the ground level. Much quicker and you can then take an elevator back the ground level.
abcdefgh abcdefg abcdefgh
The airport is under complete renovation with new terminals coming up. Hence the restroom is not up to the standard in the old terminal
Enquiring about the transport patterns of cities before hand is really beneficial. #traveltip
