All of these places are very close to each other and Hastings(even walking distance). They will be the minimum fare. And taxi is freely available on the roads in this area.

If you hire a taxi/car for half a day or a whole day it will cost you about ten times what it would cost you to hire taxis individually between these places.

Air India Office

Hi, my first post so hope it is in the right place. Does anyone know where the Air India office is in Kolkata and is it hard to find. Have booked tickets but need to go into office to pay and collect when we get to Kolkata. If anyone can help I would be so grateful.

I have looked online but have found several different addresses and not sure where to go.

It is in C. R. Avenue (locally called Central Avenue). While going towards Girish Park from Esplande ask for Indian Airlines Bldg just after crossing G.C. Avenue-Central Avenue crossing. It is hardly 1 mins walk from the crossing on the left footpath.

The bus stoppage right infront of the building is also called `Indian Airlines'. Nearest Metro station is `Chandni Chowk'.

Thank you for the help. Do you know if there is another office in Cathedral Road, when I did a search both came up and on another thread someone gave me the Cathedral Road address. Not sure if there are two offices or maybe they moved? Thanks for the help.

The address I gave u is of the Indian Airlines Building & the city office of the airlines. I did noticed an Air India office on Chowringhee Road beside the St. Paul's cathedral much earlier but not sure if there are still there now-a-days. I think u can get ur ticket by paying at the city office I mentioned. You can also enquire at the Air India ticketing counter at NSCB International Airport, they may also issue you the ticket after collecting the payment.

Air India website displays the address I mentioned in my earlier post.
