Mumbai is located at a distance of around 1030 km from Chennai. It is a major city of Maharashtra and is well-connected to Chennai by airways, railways and roadways.
However, the best way to reach Mumbai from Chennai is by flight, a journey of over an hour. Chennai airport is located at a distance of around 19 km from its city centre and can be reached by bus, taxi or cab.
Chennai Airport's new domestic and international terminals aren't linked, and are situated a substantial distance from each other. Free battery operated golf carts are being used to transport passengers between the terminals in the interim.

I preferred flying with Jet as their services are fantastic. We boarded our flight at Chennai. Chennai does have a new airport but itís just bad. We reached Mumbai and itís a great airport (comparatively). The issue with the Mumbai Airport was the traffic at the alighting point.
Work called me to relocate to Mumbai (One of the busiest city in the world). My train journey started from South and I crossed 2 states to reach Mumbai. I would say train travel across India would be one of the best ways to enjoy nature and culture of this diversity-tic country. I travelled with the people from different states speaking different languages and from different cultural background. It was a very good experience and I got some exposure towards people from other parts of India.
It was good to travel in Jet Airways. From starting point in Chennai to the destination that is Mumbai. It was comfortable to travel and good service was provided. The travel was quite good and the price was Rs. 6,053. They offered juice when needed they were good and kind and they helped me a lot. Taxis were available from Mumbai to Taj hotel.
I travelled in Akbar Travels to visit Mumbai. The journey is comfortable since I travel in non AC they didn't provide us the blankets, pillows at all. You should take a warm jacket. The halts were very good they give us the halt near the good hotel. The dish was so tasty.
