Chennai to Athens distance is the farthest among all Indian cities. Chennai is the capital of the southernmost state of Tamil Nadu, and the straight-line air distance is nearly 6200 km. However, being one of the four major metro cities, Chennai airport flies frequent high and low-cost carriers to different destinations of middle-east and Europe, which is where Athens is. Here are the different ways one can get from Chennai to Athens.
By air: Chennai to Athens flights fly from Chennai Meenambakkam Airport to Athens’ Eleftherios Venizelos Airport frequently. Chennai to Athens travel time for a direct flight is around 12 hours. But there are rarely any direct flights between the two destinations. Most airlines like Turkish Airlines Qatar Airways. Etihad or Emirates make stops in middle-eastern airports like Doha, Istanbul, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. In some cases, there are overnight layovers as well. As a solution to the time problem, many people take a flight to another nearby European city which has a lesser flight duration and then take another flight, bus, car or train to Athens. Transportation flexibility is much higher within the countries of southern Europe.
By Road: There are no roads leading from Chennai to Athens directly. Given than Chennai is a city in south India and Athens is a city in south-eastern Europe, crossing the entire stretch of middle-eastern Asia – there cannot be possibly any roadway between the cities. Athens has its own city and suburb bus circulation from Central Bus Station and terminals at Kifissou Street and Liossion Street.
By Rail: There are no railway networks to connect Chennai with Athens. But those who chose to take flights to other neighboring cities, for them the inter-country trains are of great help. The night trains and speed trains are for those who simply want to get to Athens, but the scenic trains have great views of the European countryside.
