At Kolkata Airport

Things Kolkata Airport has:

  • Chaos
  • Decent eating options
  • A loo that smells as much as loos at local stations in Mumbai
  • A public address system – which sounds like one at a railway station and is so loud that you can barely make out what they are trying to say

Things Kolkata Airport doesn’t have:

  • Cleanliness – the pillars have posters stuck to them
  • Effective air conditioning
  • Free Wi-fi – seriously!!
  • Online baggage scanning

I was recently at the Chennai Airport and cribbed a lot about how it was light years behind the other airports in India (Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Bangalore – in that order). However, now that I have to spend a couple of hours at this one, I can safely say that this the worst of them all!!
