Arriving in Chengdu

Set amid forests and bodies of water, Chengdu is a miracle of historical preservation mixed with progressive planning. Book your flights to Chengdu with Etihad Airways and get ready to embark on an adventure into Chinese culture and excitement that few other cities in China can match.

Plan Your Chengdu Visit

There are countless reasons to travel to Chengdu. Marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest Buddha statue, cut directly into a wall of red rock. Wander through the Huanglong Scenic Area considered by some to be "A Fairyland on Earth.” Get lost in Chengdu history in one of its many ancient towns. Indulge in a Chinese feast provided by one of Chengdu’s renowned restaurants. Be enthralled at a Sichuanese opera performance.

The peak season in Chengdu runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Chengdu several months in advance if you wish to travel during this busy part of the year. To find cheap hotels in Chengdu, consider travelling in the off-season (December through February) when weather conditions are not as sunny but crowds much smaller. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Chengdu throughout the year.

Flying from Ireland

Book your flights from Ireland to hundreds of worldwide destinations with Etihad Airways and experience exceptional comfort and luxury aboard our brand new aircrafts, each equipped with cutting edge in-flight entertainment systems.

Major Airports in Ireland

Ireland features four international airports and seven regional airports, though the relatively modest size of the Isle limits the need for domestic air travel. Of Ireland’s approximately 4.5 million inhabitants, roughly a third live within the city of Dublin and the surrounding areas, so it comes as no surprise that Dublin Airport (DUB) is the primary airport for international and domestic air travel. Opened in 1940, Dublin Airport’s two terminals service in excess of 19 million passengers each year.

Airport Transportation in Ireland

Dublin Airport is located just 10 kilometres from Dublin city centre, and is serviced by over 1,000 buses and coaches each day. Travellers can take the bus to Dublin Airport and into the city for a modest ticket price. The trip takes approximately half an hour, depending on traffic. A taxi to Dublin Airport is also available, though at greater cost with no real change in travel time. At the present time, there are no direct trains to Dublin Airport.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Samara

Book your flights to Samara with Etihad Airways and get ready to explore this picturesque and historically important city in a fantastic setting by the Volga River.

Plan Your Samara Holiday

When you travel to Samara you will find that with traditional Russian culture, history and beautiful scenery, this is an ideal holiday spot. Visit the secret location of Stalin’s bunker and the house where Lenin lived during his formative years. Spend an exciting Sunday afternoon perusing the stalls of the Kubychev Square market searching for the perfect souvenir or trinket to take home. Walk the embankment along the Volga River and enjoy the spectacular views before stopping at the Alabin Museum for a light lunch and a history lesson. The possibilities are endless.

The best time to visit is late spring to early autumn as the weather is perfect for sunning on the beach or exploring the countryside. Be sure to buy your tickets to Samara early if travelling in the summer. Cheap hotels in Samara are best looked for in the winter as there are not as many tourists around and the hotels compete for your business. Be sure to visit Etihad’s Deals section for flight deals to Samara.
