Chennai To Colombo Distance

By AirBy RoadBy TrainBy Sea
Chennai to Colombo1.0 hours---

The only way to go from Chennai to Colombo is by flight. There are possibilities of other modes of transport to be available, like roadway link or ferry, but at present there is none.

Here is how you can go from Chennai to Colombo by flight, train, roadway or ferry.

By Air: There are 8 Chennai to Colombo flights everyday, and the distance of around 650km by air takes 1 hour 20 minutes to travel. IndiGo Airlines have the most flights to Colombo from Chennai among the Indian airlines, but the Chennai to Colombo flight by Sri Lankan Airlines run everyday of the week. However, the sheer frequency of flights is a good enough hint that this is a pretty busy route, so to get Chennai to Colombo cheap flights, it is better to book well in advance.

By Road/Rail: At present, there are no roadways or railways between Chennai and Colombo. The closest one can get is to Dhanushkodi in Pamban Island, from where Talaimannar of Sri Lanka is only 29km away by sea. There are possibilities of a sea link in the future, which will lead to possible bus and car routes to Colombo, but there is none as of yet.

By Sea: There used to ferry service back during the British era, which was resumed in 2011 between Tuticorin to Colombo. But that too has been indefinitely stalled for a while. As of yet, there is no other way to reach Colombo from India than air travel.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      I would like to thank Ranuka from Amara lanka for his support during our trip to srilanka , there is an advice to them to provide the right guide or cab driver to take us to the right hotel as we had wasted most of our time in going to the wrong place then followed up with the booking agent & ended up in the middle of the night . As i said ranuka was helpful but am not sure whose fault it was when it came to cordination part.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      The day I travelled was on my birthday and I planned to celebrate it but they spoiled it completely. They didn’t follow up to arrange checkin on the booked resort/hotels. Later after an hour got a different room with No Wifi, No TV, No arrangements. So I got to get my day spoiled. I would have got adjusted on any other day but not on my special day. And I could see they hardly respond to us. When we reach their till you get your SIM it will be very difficult to contact anyone. So better get everything clarified or confirmed before you head. Had many view points to look at and driver did put lots of effort on to make the trip complete. Thanks Samman

    Sri Lanka is one of the safest countries to visit in Asia. There aren’t any significant security issues in Sri Lanka, except a few areas. It is not to travel during monsoon in Sri Lanka.

    The central business district of Colombo is known as Fort. Majority of five-star hotels are located in this neighborhood. Cheaper accommodation at reasonable prices in lodges and guest houses is also available in all parts of the city.

    Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple, National Museum of Colombo, Beira Lake, Colombo Dutch Museum, St. Lucia’s Cathedral, Galle Face Green, Viharamahadevi Park, and Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara are major points of interest in Colombo.
