Default Re: The "Airport Transfer" Thread

I have a query on the transit in Mumbai Airport.

I reach Mumbai airport at night 10pm, and my connection out of India is at early morning 6AM. That's a 8 hours overlay. Never transited via Mumbai and hence would like to know if they have any transit hotel or lounge. I will be with my family (kids @ 11yrs & 6yrs), so little worried to spend the time just in terminal.

Is there an option? Thanks.

I am assuming you are flying domestic which means you would arrive at the Santacruz domestic terminal(unless you are flying one of air india flights which at times land at intl terminal).If its the domestic terminal,as you enter the terminal bldg you would see boards saying international transfer.Go there and take those buses as those buses travel via the runway to the intl terminal,so no traffic jams.

At the international no transit hotels or anything of that sort.there are no flat recliner chAirs either.So you dont have an option other than to wait it out in the terminal bldg,neither do you have time to take up a hotel either in sahar or in santacruZ.for the 6am flight,checkin closes at 5am and checkin begins at 3.There is pretty much nothing to do in the airport as well.If you are a lounge member then you can use any of the airline lounges

Actually, I arrive Air India, and take an international flight. So, if I understand its going to be sleep in airport. :(

I have access to lounges in Chennai airports with those Mastercard, not sure if they have similar ones in Mumbai.

Anyway, thanks for the input.

Please check with Air India which airport are you arriving into-Sahar or Santacruz.Air India departing and arriving passengers forever go through this confusion at Mumbai as to which airport is it from.

The Sahar airport has AI,EK,BA,LH lounges only.Also be prepared for your 10pm flight to land slightly late thanks to runway works and heavy night time air congestion(atleast thats the norm in Mumbai and Delhi which share domestic and intl runways)

At Mumbai Airport there is 'Clipper' lounge on mezzanine floor (Terminal 2B) which provides access to mastercard.

Besides, they have recliners in many lounges after immigration but before the security check.

have a safe flight.

Terminal 1A is the Air India exclusive domestic terminal at santacruz.Take the shuttle bus to the international airport.you will boards to it near the luggage belt.its convenient as it goes via the airside and not via the normal roads outside of the airport.

Default Re: Airport terminal 1D to Old Delhi Station

Hi All,

I am reaching Delhi terminal 1D at 21:00 on saturday and have to catch train from old delhi station at 23:40. Please advise if I have sufficient time to transit from airport to old delhi station and what would be the safe and quick medium to travel.

I have read previous posts but those are old so wanted to know does the advised route is still holds good- taking shuttle from terminal 1D to T3 and then catch airport express for New Delhi station. From New Delhi station change metro to yellow line and get off Chandni Chowk station.

Please also let me know if it is advisable to walk to old delhi station from Chandni chowk metro station at night?

Yes prepaid taxis are available at Goa Airport,no online booking available.The rates are about INR 27/km for A/c and INR 25/km for Non-A/c,35% extra between 11pm and 6am.
