Chennai: With the number of people travelling nearing the pre Covid-19 levels, the Chennai International airport has to handle more transit passengers. Transit passengers having long hours of stay in the terminal now have an option to use the 'stay' option and take some rest between flights.

Passengers who travel through the Chennai airport can avail the 'stay' option located adjacent to the airport terminals. The facility also offers overnight stays.

A single occupancy room will cost a passenger Rs 2,000, excluding the Goods and Service Tax (GST) and the charge for a double room is Rs 2,500. Passengers can also rent a room if they wish to stay for a couple of hours. Talking about the occupancy, with 20 rooms there is about 80 per cent these days and most of the bookings are done online.

The authorities have built the rest area inside the Chennai Airport Metro station and it is a 10-minute walk from both the domestic and international terminals.
