Kolkata Airport

Any idea if a bonafide air passenger is allowed to enter Kolkata airport 6 hours before scheduled departure of the flight. We reach Howrah by train at 4 AM. We want to wait till 6 am and then go to airport. We may be early by 5-6 hours. Any idea?

Welcome to Trip Advisor...

While there are hard and fast rules on timings in International departures, the domestic departure areas are not as strict. There shouldn't be an issue going a little early. In case, they object also, request them explaining your situation and they may consider. I have been through the night in Chennai & Mumbai airports after International arrival and have had no issues.

There is no issue if you visit the airport 5-6 hours prior to your departure, even you can visit the airport in the night at 10pm for early morning flight... they will allow you if you have all the necessary documents required for the journey.

Leaving the Station at 6am is a wise decision as around 5am taxi driver can ask you some extra as well but by 6am you will get plenty of Taxis to go to Airport.
