Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Flying from Freetown

Book your flights from Freetown to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways. We ensure exceptional service from the time of reservation until your arrival at your destination.

Major Airports in Freetown

Freetown is served by the Lungi International Airport (FNA). The airport is located in Lungi, just across the Sierra Leone River from Freetown. Its terminal building is divided into three sections; a General Waiting Hall, a Departures Wing, and an Arrivals Wing. The airport offers many services for your travelling convenience, including ticketing desks for local ground transportation, a post office, a travel agency, a restaurant and an information desk with a lost and found area.

Airport Transportation in Freetown

The Sierra Leone River separates Lungi International Airport from Freetown, so getting a bus or train to Lungi International Airport are not options for passenger transport. Instead, passengers must take a water taxi to Lungi International Airport. The water taxis are a little bigger than a speedboat and will get you to the airport from Freetown in about 30 minutes. As the water taxis can often be crowded we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance. Other options for transport to Lungi International Airport are the ferry, helicopter or hovercraft.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Freetown to Shanghai on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
