3h 20min (scheduled) Domestic Arr. to Intl. Dep. - enough?

Dear good people of TA,

I have a transit from domestic arrival from Bengaluru, then a 3 hour 20 minute scheduled transit before an international flight to Dhaka, Bangladesh. I was wondering if on a bad day, it would be possible pick luggage from domestic arrival, clear security and immigration within 2-2:30 hours at Kolkata NCSB airport?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & regards

Tanveer

Well both the international and domestic terminals are situated in the same building, so it should take you about 10 mins to walk across. Picking luggage should take around 15- 20mins.

Immigration is post checkin, so in about 30-40 mins you would be on the checkin counters which generally guarantees you to board the next flight.

Hence unless your incoming flight is late by say 2 hours, you should be safe.

This should be fine unless your domestic flight is grossly delayed.

Another factor that needs to be checked is the number of outbound international flights at around that time. Kolkata is a pretty small airport, and the security check and immigration queues get piled up at times, if the traffic is heavy.

Fine if no serious delays
