I would be flying from Mumbai (BOM) to Port Blair (IXZ) in the month of February next year by Air India. This is the first time I would be traveling with connecting flights, earlier I have flown with direct flights. This is my itinerary.

Air India AI-570 06:15 BOM 08:10 MAA

Plane change at Chennai | Waiting: 2h 20m

Air India AI-551 10:30 MAA 12:40 IXZ

Is the waiting duration of 2 hours and 20 minutes sufficient? In case I won't be able to catch my connecting flight from MAA, due to delay in arriving flight, will Air India take care of arrangements?

1 Answer 1


2:20 should be plenty. If the first flight is delayed, causing you to miss the connection, and both flights are on the same ticket, then yes, Air India will take care of you. If you bought the two flights separately, then you're on your own.

  • yes I was looking for BOM-IXZ, and found this flight.

    @onkar -- then you have nothing to worry about. And have fun, the Andamans might be the most beautiful place on Earth. Oct 20, 2016 at 18:57

    @onkar -- and pack your own lunch for the flight. Air India is a terrible airline in many ways, most noticeably the food. Oct 20, 2016 at 18:58
