Your journey


Dubai International Airport (DXB) is where you’ll kick-start your trip to Chennai. To get there, you can either drive yourself, take a taxi, catch a bus or hop on the Dubai Metro – the nearest station to Terminal 2 is Abu Hail, just 2km away.

Streamline your airport experience with our online check-in service, available between 48 hours and 90 minutes prior to departure. But if you’d prefer to check-in on arrival, you can also use DXB’s self-service kiosks or head to one of flydubai’s check-in counters. Once you’re sorted, head through to the departure lounge and relax at one of the many restaurants and cafes dotted throughout Terminal 2.

Touchdown into Chennai International Airport (MAA) and you’re only a short journey from the city’s centre. To get there, head outside of the terminal where you can catch a cab from the taxi stand.

Discover Chennai


Dive into Chennai and explore the colourful layers of old and new. At its heart is a rich and fascinating culture. Visit the impressive Kapaleeswarar Temple, take snaps of grand colonial architecture and explore the area’s history at the Government Museum. Marina Beach is another must-visit destination. It’s not just a place to enjoy a dose of sunshine though – try your hand at kite surfing, sample street food, and watch the sun sink spectacularly from the sky. Venture here and you’ll find it hard not to fall in love with this Indian coastal destination.
