Arriving in Islamabad

Book your flights to Islamabad with Etihad Airways and enjoy the peaceful and visually pleasing streets of this enchanting city.

Plan Your Islamabad Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Islamabad. The historical sites and lovely green areas combine to make a trip to Islamabad an enjoyable, informative and relaxing experience. Be sure to visit the Pakistan Monument overlooking the city. A good place to consider spending a day is the Pakistan Museum of Natural History or perhaps the National Art Gallery. The Golra Pakistan Railways Heritage Museum which houses several old locomotives, a refurbished old world train station and a small museum is a hidden gem or just simply spend a day wandering through the many parks that line the avenues of Islamabad.

The best time of year to visit Islamabad is from October to April. It is also the busiest time of year for tourism in the area so it is strongly recommended that you buy your tickets to Islamabad as early as possible before you come. It is much easier to find cheap hotels in Islamabad if you plan your travel from May through September. Flight deals to Islamabad can be found in our Deals section.

Flying from Burundi

Start planning your next holiday by reserving your flights from Burundi with Etihad Airways. With roomier seats, you can make yourself right at home and stretch out for the most comfortable ride possible.

Major Airports in Burundi

Bujumbura International Airport (BJM) is a major airport in Burundi, named after the capital city of Bujumbura. It is located about 10km away from Bujumbura’s City Centre. From here, travellers can take flights to destinations all around the world.

Gitega Airport (GID) is located in the city of Gitega, 67.16km from Bujumbura Airport in Central Burundi.

Airport Transportation in Burundi

A bus to Bujumbura Airport is the safest and fastest option. Numerous minibuses run the major routes around the country and leave the minibus station near the market area. You can flag them down on the side of the road.

There is also the option of getting a taxi to Bujumbura Airport from Bujumbura city centre for a reasonable price. You can also hire a rental car, but road conditions and concerns for safety make it advisable not to drive after 5pm. There is no train to Bujumbura Airport or Gitega Airport so taking a taxi to Gitega Airport is your best option.
