CMRL to set up airport check-ins at its Central station itself
The Chennai Metro Rail (CMRL) proposes to introduce an airport check-in facility at its Chennai Central station. An official with CMRL said that flyers who wish to take the Metro to reach the airport can opt towards complete check-in procedures and collect the boarding pass at Chennai Central metro station itself. The 24 km underground Metro network runs from Washermenpet to Chennai airport via Chennai Central. Using this facility, flyers can directly board the flight upon reaching the airport. CMRL may soon hold talks with officials of Airports Authority of India (AAI) to discuss the required facilities.
