a VirtualTourist member from Olten asked on Sep 8, 2006
How far is the International Airport from Sealdah and Howrah Railway stations
(in kms and in time by taxi)?
If I land at the airport at about 7:00 pm, will it be possible to take a train from Sealdah at around 10:00 pm the same day (considering baggage claim, security clearance etc.)?
Have any VTer experienced such a situation in Kolkata?
The distance is 23 KM and 27KMs respectively. The Taxi fare would be around Rs200-250 for both thye place. You can make it with in an hour. Ask the driver to take EM Bye pass then take Park circus connector bridge no4 fly over. Then from Maidan take Strand Road for Howrah for sealdah it will be lesser. But for Howrah it is always better to start early as the Strand road is highly crowded and have snail's pace.
