Flights to India
Most international airlines have direct flights to India from
Europe and Singapore/Hong-Kong. From the US, most international
airlines fly to India with a single stop-over, either in Europe
or in the Far East. Economy class roundtrip airfares from the US
to India and back are typically around US $1500/-. Check with your
travel agent for current fares.
Most international airlines fly into Mumbai (Bombay) or Chennai
(Madras). We recommend that you fly into one of these cities. There
are several international airlines that also fly directly to Hyderabad.
Please check with your travel agent. Hyderabad is well connected
by air to all other major cities. Chennai-Hyderabad is a 1 hour
flight, and Mumbai-Hyderabad is a 90 minute flight. From the US
east coast and the midwest, one could reach Mumbai (Bombay) with
a single stopover in Europe. From the US west coast, one could reach
Chennai (Madras) or Hyderabad via Singapore, with an additional
stopover in Tokyo/Honolulu/Hong Kong.
We recommend that you avoid flights into/via New Delhi if
you are on a tight schedule -- winter fog in December often delays
flights at New Delhi airport. Some Mumbai-bound flights stopover
in New Delhi -- please check with your travel agent.
If you are planning to travel around India after/before the conference,
check with your travel agent for attractive local air travel offers
that are usually available with your international travel ticket.
