Chennai Airport Guide to Chennai International Airport (MAA)

Chennai Airport Taxi

By Chennai Airport Taxi is without a doubt the best way to get directly to the city centre. You can take Chennai Airport prepaid taxi since it is the most suitable option to ensure you’ll have a cab available and you won’t be overcharged to reach your final destination.

Eventually, you can take a rickshaw, but we do not recommend to board it in case of carrying large baggage. 

The trip will take you between 40 and 50 minutes.


Taxis are available outside the terminal building at the taxi lines and also outside Terminal 4.
