Arriving in Chennai

Book your flights to Chennai with Etihad Airways and arrive rested and well catered for by our award-winning customer service team. Arriving in India will enliven you senses, as sounds, scents and colours fill every city street.

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 Port Elizabeth

Trekking around the world is easy when you book your flights with Etihad Airways. From the time travelers make their reservations to when they board at Port Elizabeth and pick up their bags at their final destination, the service is fabulous.

Major Airports in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) accommodates the city’s outgoing cargo, as well as passengers. Formerly known as H. F. Verwoerd Airport, the airport is located roughly 2 miles south of the city's central business district. This has earned it the name "Ten Minute Airport," as it is no more than a ten minute drive from most locations in Port Elizabeth. PLZ is also extremely busy, serving approximately 1,500,000 passengers flying in and out of the city every year.

Transportation Out of Port Elizabeth Airport

Port Elizabeth Airport is easily accessible, as it is so close to downtown. It can be easily reached by car from Cape Town, as well as from Johannesburg. People can also depend on public buses to get to the airport. Since the World Cup 2010, the bus system has been renovated. A passenger should never have to wait more than 15 minutes at a bus stop. A traveler can also depend on a taxi to get to the airport. More accessible in the daytime than at night, the Toyota Hiaces and VW Caravelles taxicabs are modified to cram in as many passengers as possible.

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