Hello Everyone!
I have to catch my flight from Kolkata Airport on 6 Nov (Sunday). Please let me know if Prpaid Volvo bus service is available from Howrah station to Kolkata Airport Domestic Terminal. If yes,will the bus drop me at Domestic terminal itself and if there a booking counter available at the station?

I have to reach Airport by 4 PM, please suggest when should I depart from Howrah station to the Airport.

The buses (as fas I know) are not allowed inside the airport premises. Buses will drop you around 1.5 kms far from the terminal - you have to cover this distance by some other means.

On the other hand, the best thing which I would suggest is to take a prepaid taxi service towards the Airport. The taxi stand is just outside the Howrah Railway station. Also there are loads of other taxis too outside the station.

If you need to reach by 4 PM, start no later than 3 Pm from Howrah.

Caution - if you take any taxi which is not part of the prepaid services, please check that the driver has kept the 'Metre' on. You can argue with the drivers that you will not go unless he agrees with the 'Metre On'.

There are lots of taxis so no need to worry.

Hi Saugata!! Thanks for the quick response!!!

The direct AC Volvo bus service is available FROM the Arrival Terminal to Howrah. This is the first time when I am taking a departure flight from Kolkata, I guess similar facility should be available from HWH to Airport as well. Can somebody help by sharing the exact information about the Dedicated Airport Bus Service?

Hi Adie..

As far as I'm aware of the information there are booking Terminals inside the domestic Airport for the A/C Volvo buses but I am not aware of any Booking Terminals at the Howrah Station.. I can help you with my experience which was about a month back... The Buses reach the Howrah Station near to the Big Clock Tower (about 100-150 mts from the tower towards the main road) and there is a small underground subway entrance near to which the buses are allowed to pick up passengers.. The Volvo A/c Buses wait for the passengers near to this point.. though they are not parked there (they merely wait for for about 15-20 minutes) and then depart to the Airport.. and yes.. they drop you in front of the Terminal.

If you have to reach by 4pm you should start by 2pm to be on the safer side . The bus will drop you right in front of the domestic terminal and there is no need to pre-book the tickets.You can get your tickets done within the bus itself ,the conductor will come and will get you the tickets after collecting money from you. Just make sure that you know the place from where you have to take the bus .
Regards,

Sopan

Talking

My flight arrived at Kolkata international airport around 5 pm, and i have to get to Howrah train station for a 11:30 pm train.

how far is the international arrival terminal to the domestic terminal ? (to book the volvo bus ticket)
the volvo bus is available until night?
5pm - 7pm is rush hours/traffic jam, so should I wait until 7 pm and take the volvo bus?

thanks

There are no pre-paid Volvo bus service from Howrah station to Kolkata Airport. But you'll find pre-paid taxi booth.

International & domestic terminal are just side after.

There are no bus runs to Hawrah Station.

Better to take a taxi/pre-paid taxi.

You would be extremely lucky to reach howrah station in 1 hr from getting off your flight.
Reschedule your plans.

Now there is only one terminal.
Volvo buses are available in front of the terminal, Howrah bound buses starts every 30/45 minute interval till 10 PM at least . you have to buy ticket from the bus conductor once you get in the bus.
do not wait till 7 PM , take the first bus to Howrah station. it will be traffic jam unless it is Sunday.
