Consisting of two main passenger terminals the Chennai International Airport is one of India’s busiest airports. Complimentary WiFi is provided within the terminals but the number of dining as well as duty free options are rather limited - as such, travellers are often recommended to find food before entering or after departing from the airport. If you do need to exchange some foreign currencies, you will find these facilities here at the airport. Additionally, there is also a medical as well as child care room should you require them.
If you are going to be spending some time at the airport and you are looking for some place to rest your head or freshen up before your next flight, you may look for the ‘retiring rooms’ which are essentially dormitory-style rooms (with air-conditioning) that are for the value-conscious travellers. Conversely, if you are looking for a hotel that is located nearby to the Chennai International Airport, the Radisson Blu Hotel Chennai provides affordable and comfortable lodging with complimentary airport shuttle services across some room categories.

Travelling to and from Chennai International Airport to Chennai’s city center
There are a number of transportation options that will take you from Chennai International Airport to the city center. The most affordable method is to hop on the suburban train which will connect you to both Chennai Park and Egmore - this will cost only SGD 0.14 (USD 0.10) but it gets crowded especially during peak hours. Traveling on the first class cabin will cost approximately SGD 1.50 (USD 1.10) and it is advisable for travellers to consider this method of transportation instead. Alternatively, a pre-paid taxi will take you directly to your hotel but taxis generally have a bad reputation for overcharging - the rides should not cost more than SGD 6.50 (USD 4.60) to the city center. Travellers will also be able to rent a car from the airport from popular car rental companies like Avis - check out the Car Hire page for more details.
