Best Ways to Reach Andaman from Chennai

Andaman can be reached from Chennai in two ways, namely by air and by water. The fastest and most convenient way is to board a direct flight from Chennai International Airport to Port Blair. The airline companies that provide direct flights plying between these two locations are GoAir, Indigo, Air India and a few more. Furthermore, it would barely take around 2 hours 15 minutes to arrive in those exotic islands, if you are booking direct flight tickets to Andaman about two months before your travel. Henceforth, opting for direct flights to arrive at Port Blair would always be recommended even if you are booking our Andaman tour packages from Chennai prior to your travel. If you are arranging some months before your travelling, your air tickets are going to be much lower.

Meanwhile, you also have got the option to cruise by government ferries from Chennai port to Andaman. Choosing this mode of transport instead of airways is going to save a whole lot of money. However, these ferries are going to take around 3 to 4 days of your valuable time. Also, Ferries will only be sailing to Port Blair around 4 times a month. Apart from that, tourists having sea-sickness are also suggested to avoid these long voyages across the Bay of Bengal to reach Andaman, especially if you are on your honeymoon or family trip. Still, if you are wishing to travel by ferries you may book them from the office of Shipping Corporation of India in Chennai. They are actually a branch of the Andaman Shipping Directorate functioning in the mainland.

Information on Flight Tickets from Chennai to Andaman

Chennai is the most appropriate place to traverse to Andaman, whether you are choosing flights or ferries. It is said so, as it would barely take 2 hours and 15 minutes to arrive at Veer Savarkar International Airport, Port Blair (IXZ) from Chennai. And yet another advantage here to go for the airways is the innumerable number of direct flights plying in between Chennai International Airport (MAA) and Andaman. You may book your flight tickets to Andaman in any of the airline companies such as GoAir, SpiceJet, Indigo, Vistara or Air India. Their services can be availed almost every day. Henceforth, without any second thoughts, you may book your Andaman tour package from Chennai by at least two weeks before your travel.

Apart from the long list of direct flights plying, you may fly by any of the many connecting flights between these two busy locations. It might be having layovers at Bangalore, Kolkata or Mumbai. Booking your tickets for them could be simpler, but they are going to eat up your money more than the direct flights. In addition to that, they will be more time-consuming. So if you are on your honeymoon trip to Andaman, you are going to lose some valuable time, which could better be spent in this dreamy land rather than on random airports that are unfamiliar to you. Furthermore, in the wake of this pandemic, booking a flight with a minimum layover is much safer than travelling via those time taking connecting flights.

Apart from that, all public places in Andaman are specifically ordered to obey social distancing without forming any crowds. Even otherwise, the positive rate of covid tests in the Andaman Islands was fairly less than it was in the Indian mainland. The government had also envisioned the graveness of the issue, following which, they had completely halted the movements of tourists to the islands, making it difficult to procure flight tickets to Andaman. This adequate movement had lowered the casualty rates to a great extent.
