Kolkata Airport Train Details

Kolkata International Airport Train

Kolkata Airport train photo

An underground circular railway runs from nearby Dum Dum Junction, about 5 kilometres (3 miles) from the Kolkata Airport. From here, trains will take you to Princep Ghat near Strand Road. Trains run about every 15 minutes during peak hours, and about every 60 minutes non-peak. More Information and Maps    .

 

Note that there is also an extension from Dum Dum to the Kolkata Airport, however there are very few trains that are running on this line as of yet, so your best bet is a taxi to Dum Dum to catch a train.

 

Returning to the airport, if you take the bus from Dum Dum station, be aware that you won't be able to actually see the terminal from the point where the bus drops you off. Look for a hole in the wall, and go through it. You will walk across a small open park to get to the terminal.
