The 12220 / 19 Secunderabad - Mumbai (LTT) Duronto Express covers the distance of 773 kilometres in 12 hours (64.42 km/hr) in both directions and its fare thus includes an additional superfast surcharge for the service as it is quite above the average speed of an express train which is 55 km/h (34 mph) as per Indian Railway rules.
The train offers only air-conditioned coaches. Its length generally comprises 1 AC 1st-class coach, 3 AC 2-tier coaches and 9 AC 3-tier coaches for passengers, generator coaches on either ends for powering the AC and a Pantry car for catering services
As is customary with most train services in India, coach composition may be amended at the discretion of Indian Railways depending on demand.
