Exploring Chennai Intl. Airport (MAA)

Mumbai and Delhi are the only two cities in India whose airports welcome more traffic than Chennai International Airport, which serves Tamil Nadu's historic state capital. The two terminals at this airport south of Chennai are Kamaraj, which handles all domestic flights, and Anna, which handles international flights from across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. The GST Road south of the airport contains many conveniently located hotels like the budget Hotel Mars or the five-star Trident, Chennai.

Chennai International Airport, like the city it serves, has grown tremendously in recent years with a total of 19 domestic and 33 international airline operators. In 2012, about 13 and a half million people used this air gateway to four states in southern India. A second international airport will soon need to be constructed to accommodate this large amount of passenger traffic.

Sights nearby

It takes about half an hour to drive between Chennai and its airport, which is also situated west of Guindy National Park, India's smallest, and north of the Nanmangalam Reserve Forest. The Bay of Bengal coastline east of Chennai contains one of the world's longest beaches.

Guindy National Park
Guindy National Park is not only the only national park in India whose boundaries lie entirely within a major metropolitan area, but also happens to be the smallest national park in the nation. Hedgehogs, spotted deer, and elephants are some of the 14 woodland mammal species which roam around this park's more than 14 types of shrubs and 20 species of trees south of Chennai. The adjacent Guindy Snake Park provides a home for more than 30 species of snakes.

Marina Beach
Swimming may not be a safe activity due to the lack of lifeguards and strong undercurrents from the Bay of Bengal, but Marina Beach is nonetheless worth visiting because of its elegant promenade and status as the planet's second longest city beach. Weekends and evenings are the most popular times to enjoy sundal, murukku, and other outdoor snacks. However, early morning brings a much more peaceful atmosphere along with beautiful sunrises.

Nanmangalam Reserve Forest
At least 85 different types of birds soar above this protected area and popular bird watching spot between Tambaram and Velachery. Another main attraction in Nanmangalam Reserve Forest is the rare territorial orchids which bloom throughout this former granite quarry filled with scrubland. The best way to explore this stunning reserve forest is during a tour organized by local bird watching or nature societies.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

Snack, tea, coffee, and juice bars are the main places to eat at Chennai International Airport aside from the flight kitchens operated by the Maharaja and Indian Airlines lounges. Most nearby hotels, like Mahalaya Residency, also include full service restaurants. Hotels are also among the few buildings which can serve alcohol, a banned substance in Chennai buildings with less than 21 bedrooms. Handicraft and book stalls are the airport's main shopping offerings aside from duty-free establishments.

Public transport

Although a direct Metro rail connection with Chennai has yet to be established, the Egmore and Chennai Central rail stations can still be reached from the airport by suburban train connections. Suburban rail is the cheapest, but not always the most practical, way to travel between the airport and the city. It takes an average of 20 minutes to travel from Chennai International Airport to the large Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus by private taxi or bus.
