When flying out of New Delhi you will be using New Delhi Indira Gandhi Intl, often referred to as New Delhi Airport. You will be landing at Chennai, also known as Chennai Airport.
If you are looking to stay close to the airport on arrival, there are four hotels located in the vicinity of the terminals, all within five to ten minutes and offering airport shuttle transfers. Alternatively, there are Retiring Rooms inside the terminal that offer a dormitory space for resting and sleeping, and showers are also available should you need to freshen up.
The closest train station to the airport is 500m away from the terminal and provides suburban train connections between the airport and Chennai Park or Egmore stations. Another public transport option is the metro, which you can get from the metro station located across the airport car park. However, the airport line (the Blue Line) only goes halfway to the city centre, so if that’s where you’re heading you will need to transfer to the Green Line along the way.
Taxis are readily available from the taxi ranks outside the terminal building, and you can choose between a metered taxi or a pre-paid one. If you prefer the latter option, head to the pre-paid taxi booth in Arrivals to pay the taxi fare and then simply give the ticket to the driver before your trip.
Passengers wishing to stay connected upon arrival can use the airport’s free Wi-Fi service for up to 45 minutes. If you need to use the Internet for longer, you have the option of purchasing additional time. Please note that you must have a valid phone number in order to use the Wi-Fi connection as you will get sent a PIN number by SMS. If you have a SIM-free device, you can head to the information desk to ask for the PIN.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
