Fly with British Airways and enjoy award-winning service, excellent value for money and no hidden charges:
Flights to Chennai transport you into an India that’s temperamentally and historically separate from the north.
Close by is Pondicherry (now Puducherry), the last enclave of French India, one of India’s most fascinating cities – recently brought to life in the movie Life of Pi. Just outside is the ‘experimental city’ of Auroville, whose centrepiece, a golden sphere called the Matrimandir, is one of the wonders of modern India. And while there are great Hindu temples such as Kanchipuram and Tiruchirapalli there are remnants, too, of the Chola dynasty – notably in the town of Thanjavur.
The flight from London Heathrow to Chennai International airport takes just over 11 hours. Keep an eye open for special deals on the service, which offers World Traveller Plus and Club options.
British Airways is the premium service from London to Chennai, operating five flights a week. You’ll enjoy award-winning service, free newspapers, onboard food and drinks, and a generous 23kg checked baggage allowance.
Flights to Chennai with British Airways are the most convenient, practical and stylish way to access southern India. Just 11 hours after leaving London, you’ll find yourself in bustling Chennai.
The British Airways flight lands in the early hours, which is actually the ideal way to avoid Chennai’s sometimes chaotic traffic. Taxis and auto-rickshaws to Chennai’s many impressive hotels should take 30 minutes and this being India, every minute is an adventure and a spectacle.
After a huge refurbishment programme, Chennai promises to become one of India’s most modern and sophisticated airports, offering a wide range of shopping and dining choices. Before your Chennai to London flight, browse through an interesting selection of Indian jewellery and textiles.
