One week ago I paid 280 for a prepaid taxi at 4:30 am (airport - Sudder Street). The service was good and uncomplicated, traveling cosy and quick in a non-AC cab with plenty of AC from open windows I consider this a fair price as the distance seemed to be quite long.

Hi,on the 17th of July I need to travel from the Georgian Inn, on Doctors lane to the domestic airport. I have to catch a flight at 11:10 to Chennai. What is the best way to the airport. Should I walk to Sealdah? Then take a prepaid taxi. I will bus if there are not to many changes.
Greetings,
Homerus.

Huh? What does the destination of your flight (Chennai) have to do with this? And why on earth would you walk to Sealdah (walkable, but hardly very close) simply in order to get a taxi?

Just walk out to a main street and hail a yellow-black taxi. If you are afraid of doing that, or concerned about finding one at ~ 8:30am (not yet rush hour), pay somewhat more to have the hotel arrange something. It's not a big deal and the cost is not that high. You can also get a ride via the Uber/Ola apps.

You can get a bus or minibus also, if that is really your thing. Walk to AJC Bose Road (Lower Circular Road), which is nearby, and I am pretty sure you will be able to get a minibus that goes to the airport. I am not sure you can get into the bus, though, especially if you have any luggage.

I asked for information not for you to be sarcastic.
This site is about India and travelling around India and that is what I will be doing. I just happened to mention that I was flying to Chennai.
I want to go by bus to the airport. I know I will have to change buses as long as the next bus is within the vicinity then I won't get lost,which I am hard wired to do.
I am sure my hotel will point me in the right direction.

If I am not mistaken the prepaid booth at the airport is open 24*7.
