Getting There: Traveling to India

Those who are exploring the possibility of joining us in India have asked for some details to help you research options.  Here is some information that can inform your decision making.

Total recommended budget per person: $2,000-$2,400 (Based on a two-week trip) (Dependent upon shopping, extent of travel)

Average cost of flight to India: $1,100-1,300
Recommended Airport of Entry: Delhi International Airport 

Ultimate Destination Airport: Patna, Bihar (Jayprakash Narain International Airport).  Patna is the state capital of Bihar, Sue's home state.  Patna is 60 miles from Sue's home town (takes 3 hours by car).  

Flight options: There are direct flights to Delhi from SF/LA/NYC.  If you'd prefer a layover to stretch your legs, those are available, too. 

Our Plans: My parents, brothers, and Carlos (Manuel's roommate from culinary school) will be flying into New York a few days early to check-out the City.  On November 21st we plan to fly out of JFK on an overnight flight to London (Heathrow Airport).  We'll arrive in London early Saturday morning (UK time) and spend a day in London during which time we'll enjoy a delicious English breakfast (fried eggs, steamed tomato, pork and beans---yum!).  After exploring some of London for the day, we'll fly directly to Delhi and arrive there by Sunday afternoon (India time). Total travel time is about 16 hours.

Folks who are taking the NY-London-Delhi route are welcomed to join us on the flight. We would be happy to make flight arrangements to ensure that you are on the same flight.  Otherwise, as soon as we book our tickets (in less than 2 weeks), we'll let you know when we plan to arrive in Delhi so that you can coordinate your flight.

If you plan to travel to Patna on your own, let us know and we'll arrange to have a car to pick you up upon arrival to bring you to Sue's home town.
