Time is the most important factor and Indigo cares for time. The only airline which offer flight from Lucknow to Kolkata. The enroute was not so lengthy and has good experience on board. The Kolkata airport is well connected to the city and plenty of city taxi available there.

It was a family function cum vacation trip. Day 1: The new flyover from the Airport to VIP Road is a relief as it has reduced traffic by 50% and we reached our residence around 5 Pm in Behala (Kolkata). People are friendly and helpful. Yellow taxis available everywhere except when there is an adhoc strike for a whimsical reason. Cab also available.

My first journey was superb, from Kanpur to Howrah. We reached the Kanpur Central Station 30 min before the train scheduled. I heard many train coming in late. But our train was on right time. However, we reached Kolkata safely. We took our food from the canteen of our train. The food was superb. In a word everything was very nice. We were three persons. My parents were also very happy. By the way, one thing I forgot to tell that my parents were not ready to visit Kolkata. But now they are happy. We spent 15 days in Kolkata. We were roaming in Howrah breeze, science city, Belurh math, Kalighat, Alipore Zoo etc. We wanted to meet the home minister of West Bengal. But it was not a very simple task. By the way, at last we could not able to see her face.

It was a good experience as we reached there by Rajdhani Express at morning 6 am. Train was few minutes late and took a taxi to reach the hotel. And rest while we planned to go to JK Temple and we took an auto and reached JK Temple which was around 2.5 km from the hotel. So it was a nice trip.
