Hi there,

I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience flying within India. I'm going there in February and will need to fly from Kolkata to Mumbai. Is it fairly easy to arrange flights there and is it expensive/cheap? Does anyone know how much a flight from Kolkata to Mumbai would approximately cost?

Thanks for any help!

Beth

There are a lot of budget airlines in India. Such as kingfisher, air Sahara, air deccan, Spice jet, Indigo airlines and a few more. Look on the website of one of these airlines. They are extremely cheap. Kolkata to Mumbai could cost for Indians 30 to 40 dollars. But when I tried last year I was told that I had to pay a special tarif for foreigners. Which was much more and to pay in US dollars. A ticket for foreigners Kolkata-Mumbai is 120 US dollars (that means one way).

Thanks for the fast response! That's really helpful. The flight is a bit more expensive than I would have hoped, but I guess there is no way around foreign tariffs.

Thanks again!
