Plan Your Chennai Holiday

With so many options when you travel to Chennai, this is a city break which can easily also be a resort holiday by the sea. With stunningly ornate and breathtaking temples to visit, artistic fairs to browse, cool beaches to relax upon and cuisine to cater to every taste, India will remain with you long after you leave.

Because of high humidity and temperatures, the early summer months can be quieter travel periods, but for cooler, yet still hot, days early in the year is a perfect time to travel. Chennai can be affected by monsoons and storms, which generally peak in the late autumn months. In such a bustling atmosphere it is hard to avoid the crowds and tickets to Chennai should be purchased well in advance. Cheap hotels in Chennai are readily available and many luxurious hotels are easily affordable. To find the best flight deals to Chennai, be sure to check our Deals section.

Flying from Sao Paulo

The next time you need to fly from Sao Paulo Brazil, it is wise to rely on Etihad Airways. Thanks to top-quality service, every step of your trip will be a breeze, from the time you book your flight to the time you receive your luggage at your final destination.

Sao Paulo’s Major Airport

When flying out of Sao Paulo, a passenger will travel through the Guarulhos–Governador André Franco Montoro International Airport, GRU. Previously known as Cumbica Airport, the airport was renamed after the former Governor André Franco Montoro in 2001. A number of its amenities are shared with the São Paulo Air Force Base of the Brazilian Air Force.

When it comes to transporting passengers, aircraft operations, and cargo handling, the grand facility has been ranked Number One in Brazil. GRU is also the busiest airport in the nation. As an added bonus, the Tropic of Capricorn goes directly through the southern tip of the airport.

There are immediate plans to spend millions remodeling the Guarulhos International Airport in preparation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as well as the Summer Olympics in 2016. The preparations include the construction of new taxiways, as well as constructing a new passenger terminal. The new terminal will add another 12 million passenger capacity to the 17 million that exists now. Meanwhile, the main runways will be widened to access the new Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8. Even the parking terminals will be expanded.

Airport Transportation in Sao Paulo

When you need to get to Guarulhos International Airport, you can take the facility’s own highway. The Rodovia Hélio Smidt Highway connects GRU to two other main highways, Presidente Dutra Highway and Ayrton Senna Highway. A Guarulhos resident can easily access the Rodovia Hélio Smidt Highway from Monteiro Lobato Avenue.

A passenger can also take advantage of Airport Bus Service, as well as the taxi stands located outside of each terminal.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Sao Paulo to Chennai on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
