My Travel from Chennai to the Heritage City of Patna via Indigo Airlines

August 10, 2015

I am a software technician by profession and hence I have quite a competent attitude towards work. I believe in giving my best in whatever I engage myself in. Even though my schedule is quite tied up still I always device ways to find some time for myself. I love to travel. This vacation I planned a trip to Patna. I prefer comfortable and luxurious travel and hence decided to take the air route for my trip.

Since I couldn’t find a direct flight from Chennai to Patna I had to first board a flight at the Chennai airport that would take me to the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose airport at Kolkata and hereafter I would board a flight that would take me to my destination i.e. the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Airport in Patna. I have travelled a couple of times via Indigo airlines and hence I would suggest if you prefer budget air travel and comfortable in – flight services you should surely go for this low cost carrier.
