Hi,

2nd leg flight seems ok as its airport in and out. The train from Darjeeling at 6, umm...depends on fog delays. Normally, if you depart from Sealdah station at 6.30, you will be in the airport by 7.15 because the traffic is light that time in the morning.

To make a fair estimate, you are good to go even if the train is an hour late. Any later, and you are in trouble. Maybe you can take a later flight on Jet or Indigo ?

hey there,thanks for your fast reply..just checked those airlines:

Indigo 7.30am from CCU

Jet goes even earlier at 6.30 and another one at 9.30.

anyway,might pick them on the return flight to CCU,arriving 19.40pm with a 2 hour stop in mumbai.

kingfisher:

Kingfisher only 40 min in delhi,maybe won't make the connecting flight..

what's the story then,will they(kingfisher) take you to the next plane arriving CCU 21.50 which also would fit..?

any idea on that?

thanks again for your time!

best regards and greetings from germany!

I am thinking about a bus from siliguri to Kolkata,I think they start around 6.00pm ,even can get out close to the airport,but..remember the terrible road conditions when I last visited in 2003:)

Any change now?

Hi again, sorry but I missed your reply post earlier.

The bus is a good option, they have an AC Volvo bus now Siliguri-Kolkata. The highways are a little improved but basic roads still the same. But on the train too, you can save 30 min time if you get down at Bidhannagar Road stop instead of Sealdah station. From there a taxi to the airport is only 15 min.

Check makemytrip.com or yatra.com for a list of all flights Kolkata-Mumbai, and maybe you will have more options to decide your best course of action.

By the way, check the situation in Dajeeling before going. There has been some trouble again recently, but it should not continue beyond next 2-3 weeks.
