Flights to India

Post by Slime »

I have recently returned from a trip to India to paddle the Mahakali (great 6 days of class 3, blue, warm play river with raft support - see www.treknraft.com).

We used Jet Airways for our flights and highly recommend them (all of our group rated them the best flight to India) - a direct daily flight, new plane, good food, and no hassle with kayaks (we took 9). Book through KE Adventure travel and you get 28kg baggage allowance 01768 780888.

Jet Airways are the largest independant airline in India and have good flights to places like Leh.

Happy travels, Slime

Hi Slime.

You were lucky, for my trip to the Marhakali in October Jet Airways have just changed the dates and upped the price.

Looks like I will be back on BA, who are not so boat friendly.

But tell me all about it on the week-end.

Stuart.

PS However all the folks at KE travel are very helpfull.

We're flying out next week and have booked Virgin, with a whopping baggage allowance of 20 kilos.

It remains to be seen how good an idea that was.

You're a teacher right Mark? (me too), if it's not too personal a question, how'd you get time off?

I didn't - it's the Easter holiday, plus convenient bank holiday Monday at the end.

I just booked my flights to Delhi for this summer. Only 450 quid with BA this week for some reason. Bargain!

It looks like BA. Price October £483 with a 23 Kilo allowance better than most.

Booked with KE travel (same as Slime)

On my way to the Sun.
