Redefining the travel experience from Thiruvananthapuram to Chennai, the Duronto Express connecting both cities will begin its service from Saturday. Train No 02207 Chennai Central-Thiruvananthapuram Duronto Express will leave Chennai at 5pm on Saturday and arrive at Thiruvananthapuram Central at 5.45am on Sunday. The new service will benefit thousands of Keralites who are working in Chennai. The timing of the trains was also planned to benefit office goers.

The train will take only 12 hours and 45 minutes to travel from Thiruvananthapuram to Chennai. At present, the Chennai Mail and Chennai Super Fast take 17 to 18 hours to reach Chennai. Buses that ply via Nagercoil and Madurai to Chennai will also take almost 14 hours. The bi-weekly Duronto will have no stops in between and will have only AC compartments. Though the initial frequency will be two trains per week, passengers here hope that the railways will increase it in future.
