Kolkata - Post Report Question and Answers

Travel time and best routes to this city from Europe or the US:

Most people are taking the Lufthansa flight direct from Frankfurt. If you have to do consultations in Delhi there are many more int'l options to there then domestic on to Kolkata. It takes a good 24hours. There are fewer and fewer direct options to Kolkata, BA has left, Lufthansa comes 3x/week, the rest stop somewhere in the middle east or Asia. There are no direct flights like other cities. - Jun 2009

A long, long time. About 24 hours or so. Flights from Europe have dwindled, so the best, most direct route is Lufthansa from Frankfurt direct. If you bring pets, you can come direct; others are usually required to stop in Delhi for consultations on the way. There are many airlines serving Delhi. - Mar 2009

9 hours to Frankfurt, then 9 hours to Calcutta. - May 2008
