When is the best time to book a flight to Mumbai?

Other than the low season of June to September, you can find cheap flights to Mumbai around March and April if you plan ahead and secure your flight tickets a few months in advance. Regardless of when you are planning on visiting, you should aim to have your flights to Mumbai booked at least three months ahead of time, or more if you can. If you aren’t blocked in by school holidays or set weeks, then being flexible will help you find cheap flight tickets. However, you might have to pass on a particular event or season.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Mumbai?

The cheapest flights to Mumbai are usually found when departing on a Tuesday. The departure day with the highest cost at present is Saturday.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Mumbai?

To get the best value, try booking a flight in the afternoon when visiting Mumbai. Generally the prices will increase for flights at midday as these tend to have higher demand.

Peak season:

There are many Holy events and stunning festivals that take place throughout India across the year, although the peak season is generally from September to April. This is when the weather is most pleasant for tourists. Late August to early September sees the Ganesh Chaturthi festival. It’s a ten-day Hindu festival which is immensely popular. Holi is a celebration of Indian culture and is held on the full moon during March. The Holi festival is an amazing celebration of colour in a bid for happiness, prosperity and peace to all who are involved. Cheap flights to Mumbai are generally very hard to find leading up to these events, however if you plan ahead you can secure some good deals on your flight tickets.


Off season:

Which airlines operate flights to Mumbai?

Jet Airways, British Airways, Air India and Virgin Atlantic are the four major airlines that operate routes to Mumbai. Deciding which airline to fly with will usually come down to whoever provides the cheapest flights to Mumbai, although occasionally it can come down to preference. For example, if you have a loyalty scheme with Virgin or British Airways, it would make sense to continue flying with them, either so you can redeem your saved up points or continue to earn more. British Airways also offer free snacks and beverages throughout their flights, so this is something to consider when booking your flight tickets. Virgin Atlantic on the other hand are well known for their high levels of comfort and customer service.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

The Chhatrapati Shivaji International airport is around 28km north of Mumbai. There are several different methods you can use to get yourself to the centre once your flights to Mumbai land. The first of which is to jump on a train, one of the fastest ways to travel. There are three different lines you can use: the Western, Central and Harbour lines, all of which link up to several different parts of the city, so figure out which one is best for you once you arrive. You’ll need to take a quick bus or taxi journey to the train station itself, so factor this into your plans once you’ve booked your flight tickets. The only bus service available from the airport goes to one of two different train stations, either the Vile Parle or the Andheri. Taxis are the only way you can travel if you want to get dropped off directly at the door of your accommodation, but always go for a pre-paid one over a metered taxi. Taxi drivers in Mumbai are notorious for overcharging and driving excessively long routes to increase the price, so avoid metered drivers at all costs. Lastly, you can opt to travel in an Auto Rickshaw, although these are only authorized to travel within the western suburbs beyond Bandra and in the central suburbs past Sion.
