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 Egypt

You can travel to hundreds of destinations around the world when you book your flights from Egypt with Etihad Airways and take control of your flight details with the easy-to-use modify option.

Major Airports in Egypt

Start your trip from Egypt at Luxor Airport (LXR) in Luxor city, conveniently located near the popular tourist sites of the Valley of the Kings and the River Nile. The airport has a number of restaurants and a duty-free shop among other amenities.

Cairo Airport (CAI) operates from the city of Cairo where it handles more passengers than any other airport in Egypt. It is about 15 km from the business district of Cairo, providing easy access to tourists and business travellers alike.

Airport Transportation in Egypt

Although you will need to make sure the driver uses the meter when you take a taxi to Cairo Airport, it is probably your best and most comfortable option for transportation. It isn’t unusual for the bus to Cairo Airport to be crowded and the train service doesn’t run all the way to the airport.

There is no bus service or train to Luxor Airport, but a taxi service is available throughout Luxor.
