Awaiting the reopen of Neyveli Airport

As many people are overseas and some from nearby towns around naively are in major cities in India, I am very sure Neyveli airport will run profitably. So, I request the government of India and the airport authorities to reconsider reopening the airport at least few days a week in the beginning.

You may also note that most of the employees in the NLC are from other parts of the states too. So, the operation of Neyveli will be quite useful to the public and successful.

Awaiting your response.

Thank You.

Leo. J

Worst airport ever

We arrived in January from Colombo early in the morning, and had a 5 hour wait for connecting flight.

I agree with previous comments, it is ridiculous that you cannot wait inside the terminal building, no access to toilet facilities, drinking water, seats. Nothing provided at all. A couple of outside catering carts, but nowhere to sit.

In general the most shitty airport I've ever been to, and I've been to a few!

Now our return flight back the other way.

Can we find out information about the recent floods ? Absolutely not, don't even know if the airport is open.

This is a complete joke, and we will ensure we NEVER return.

The poor state of Chennai Airport can be blamed partly on th

The director deepak shastri is as bad of a bureaucrat as you can get. This stooge was probably appointed by the previous corrupt government. He is very unprofessional and uses the Chennai Airports twitter handle @aaichnairport for his own purposes. Just go and read the tweets and you will be appalled. Any constructive tweets to the airport are met with hostility and curses. He also does not bother to update the Airport website even during these worst floods..not sent a single tweet about the airport status. Seeing his behavior I am not surprised why the airport is in such poor shape. The restrooms alone should be reason for this guy to be fired, but sadly he does not care because he won't be fired..so he can continue embarrassing India with this kind of operation. We Indians are helpless against these kind of government run facilities since no one is accountable.

Airport quality

To call this an international airport is a huge insult to every other airport in the country and in the world. I have travelled quite a bit to African and Pacific countries who have small airports and even those airports are of much better quality than Chennai airport. Corruption starts at the top and the head of the state, the Chief Minister should resign in shame to claim the airport to be international. Local contractors have built/extended the airport and they have no shame, much less the local government. They might try to hide under the excuse that it is the responsibility of the Union Government yet it is called the Chennai International Airport and the local government cannot shelter under any excuse. The airport is a disgrace and should be stripped of its standing as an international airport.

Airport restrooms for disabled

I visited chennai international airport on Nov 30th 2015. Iam temporarily disabled. There is no separate restroom for disabled. There is no toilet seat in the ladies toilet. The lady in charge claims that all the seats in the three toilet are broken. It is annoying how a women can sit in the western toilet without seat. Gods sake you guys are collecting money. Stop staring disabled and start caring. Anything might happen to anybody. Pls change it get blessed otherwise u guys will be cursed.

One of the shittiest airport in the world / Chennai airport,

I have flown almost all over the world. All developed, developing and under-developed countries. Never seen a system and unprofessional airport like Chennai or people at this airport. Hopefully these people at Chennai airport learn from others if they want to compete globally and bring global business people to Chennai.

Feel sorry for tamil nadu

Recently flew in and out of Chennai international airport. It is chaotic and esply the rest rooms are AWFUL. There are a total of 2 toilets in the airport and you find them with your nose. I could not figure out the men's vs ladies' toilets. Where are the toilet tissues? 20 years ago, in the old Bombay international airport, there used to be janitor ladies, handing out squares of toilet issues to each traveler. There was one janitor lady in one of the new Chennai toilets, adjusting her sari as men and women walked in, and the toilets were covered with water (?) making them unusable, and no one could approach the janitor lady as that would be an affront to her modesty. As a woman, I cannot use the toilet, if men walk in as well.

The question is, who ate all the money spent on this costly construction project?

poor customer service in chennai airport

Dear All, i had recently visited India and while i was in the Chennai Airport on 16Aug15 morning, i noticed each and every staff of yours are very rude and unprofessional. I feel that as a paying customer i do not wish to be spending money to get such a bad service. Your security services calls people 'heh hello' instead of 'excuse me Sir, your immigrant officer was scolding some people in the queue because their flight is geting late by telling them to come early in future etc, when its your check-in officers who are so slow. And she was refusing to open the elastic barrier for them to cross to another counter for checking in by telling them its not her job to open the barier (she is an elderly woman wearing saree with a bulging tummy), i do not know her name because you are not practising wearing visible name tags. Then another women officer wearing pants came and talked rudely by telling some guys to queue prperly if not she will send to the start of the queue (she is relatively young and wore glass). Then i think you have their supervisor sitting in the office smiling and joking around with the staffs. I clearly feel that all your staff are not employed through merits and have a poor educational upbringing or either your management is not strict in discipling them. Non of the staff are concerned about making the airport's image admirable but rather its seems they are interested in showing their power without realizing how silly they look eventually in the eyes of the world.

My recent experience Jul 2015

The airport has been completely rebuilt and has world class amenities. There is still not enough parking for cars and yes, I dont think there is any car parking facility for long term basis like a day or two. The AAI website says its still work in progress. All charges are hourly basis. However there is long term parking for bikes available. The charges are Rs 50 for 4 hours and 102 for 24 hours. However this a open parking and bike was left in the sun and rain for 3 days. I struggled for 20 min. to get it started!

Hosur Airport need to be develop and flight services could b

Hosur and around city Business people, every common man travel about 100KM to access the BIAL.. Govt. can consider the practical difficulties and open the services at Hosur as soon to avoid time delays and economic waste + Increase of air pollution.

Flights to GULF especially Saudi

Considerable population travel from madurai to Gulf from TRIVANDRUM or TRICHY because of no international flight from Madurai. If started approx. 30% from Trivandrum, 30% from Trichy and 10% from Chennai travellers can easily opt to fly to Madurai as their Home city near Madurai. Expecting a positive update serve lot of travellers around Gulf

Tuticorin Airport needs immediate expansion

Considering the business potential of the port city of Tuticorin, there is an imperative need to develop the infrastructure of the Tuticorin Airport to enable the airport to handle international flights and cargo.

Picture of

Much Needed

the people in salem were in the need of aiport. coz of development in city and population growth and it is fifth largest city in tamilnadu. Most of all it have steel plant, it is a largest fruit market in tamilnadu, now there comes a salem railway division, salem bus division has the headquaters for namakkal, dharmapuri and krishnagiri and hosur districts. without airport its very difficult for people.

Picture of

Salemmmmm!

Salem has more population.without the airport how people can manage. More people are going to Bangalore which is about 250km away from Salem which can take about 5hrs to reach for that we can go to srilanka from Salem by a plane so please try to open the airport by the end of the month. Thank you.

Picture of

respected sir

By opening the Salem airport. Salem can attract various people from various departments. So plsssss open the airport.

Picture of

Salem's share goes to Trichy, Coimbatore and Bangalore

If you look at last few years, all neighboring airports to Salem are having good increase in passenger traffice and Salem region contributes considerably to their growth. These days it takes longer to reach from Hosur to Bangalore airport than reaching Salem airport due to the traffic. Salem airport has immense potential if any carrier strategically opens its operation here. Also government should provide fuel concession to encourage the operators to consider Salem.

Exorbitant Parking Charges

The Mother F....rs at Chennai Airports viz Garuda Aviation Services Pvt Ltd just not charge Car drivers for staying a second extra but fleece. Abdul Basher and Buddu are two A.......les I understand managing Chennai ops.

Outrageous waiting policy

At no other airport IN THE WORLD have I ever experienced the obnoxious policy of no waiting indoors. What am I to do while I wait for my 2:16 am flight early the following morning? Wait on the curb. Easier said than done when you arrive in Chennai at 5:30 on an overnight train and want nothing more than to relax in air con and rest for the afternoon...rather than haul your luggage around the sticky city, killing time for the sake of killing time. This is bullshit. This is not a policy of international airports.

Request for Salemites... we have

Salem (Tamil nadu, India) is well connected with chennai, bangaluru, trichy, coimbatore & madurai.. By road way as well as by train except trichy and maduri. The all above cities are located at less than 200 as well as more than 140 km. This is the reason behind air connectivity fails... Salem city has more than 11 laks city population. Major industries like steel plants, sago industries, text tiles also one of the most business area around state as well as country. In future IT companies are going to occupy.. So we need flight connectivity for improving our city life style.. As of now we don't want direct connectivity flight to chennai. We need air connectivity. So think about possible way like kochin-chennai as kochin-salem-chennai. Similarly trivandrum-hyderabad as trivandrum-salem-hyderabad. I think this may work out... Because we don't have proper direct trains from salem to other part of state as well as country. But we have lot of train connectivity around our country. This is the fact of our city... Some thing we are looking for change...

poor maintenance

Recently i traveled both Domestic and International via Chennai Airport. Airport Maintenance (Gents Toilet area) is very bad in Domestic terminal. No hand wash liquid, wet floor, carpet area in the gate area with lot of stain and not clean. International terminal departure gate area witnessed lot of pigeons (six to seven in numbers) flying inside the terminal.

Please send the AAI staff in Chennai Airport to go on Field trip to take a look at other airports that are maintained very well

(Hyderabad and Bangalore) and learn how to maintain the airport clean and tidy. if they are not efficient, Please remove them

from the job. Travelers flying via Chennai deserve better.

Expensive, poor quality airport

Chennai Airport needs to be forcefully taken away from AAI and given to an efficient international operator. If any union intervenes, they should be thrown into the Bay of Bengal.

The coffee shops are ridiculosuly priced. Dip Tea costs Rs. 80!!!!! This is day light robbery. Even coffee/ tea at Heathrow or Fraport will not be this expensive, even if we consider PPP adjustments. The scanning machines take longer time, toilets are badly maintained, one has to walk long distances for everything. Passengers use this facility, just because they don't have a choice. If it were in competing distance from bangalore or hyderabad, it would badly loose all business and shut down automatically!

Parking Scam

UNBELIEVABLE...is the one word that comes to my mind when i think of parking my car in Chennai airport.I stayed inside the airport for exactly 10 min 35 seconds and i had to pay Rs.135 for those extra 35 SECONDS. Believe it or not, A guy can easily have 2 meals in Chennai with that money. India is not a country like the US or any other developed country for that matter.We are already burdened with taxes, corruption,fuel price hikes and not to mention the ever greedy and obnoxious autowallahs etc. How can we improve our living standards if we get ripped off like this every single day by so many factors. No wonder there is a huge amount of people moving out every year. If India wants to retain its talent and improve its economy, the government needs to know that siphoning off small change through taxes, price hikes etc will only f**k them up in the long run and they cannot afford to piss off the citizens who are the most important resource in the country. People are getting smarter every day and the day is closer where there will be a truly democratic government. Beware u babus, netas, sonia gandhi, modi, karunanidhi, jayalalitha. The INDIAN is aggressively rising to change the way the world looks at India. You can either help him in his endeavors or incur his wrath and get destroyed.

Electrical points for Charging mobiles not working

Dirty carpets - why have carpets if you cant maintain them
