Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Jordan

Reserve your flights from Jordan to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy award-winning service throughout your flight.

Major Airports in Jordan

For travellers leaving Zizya, international flights leave Queen Alia International Airport (AMM). Located 20 miles south of Amman, this is Jordan’s largest airport. There are two passenger terminals and parking is available at a departure curb side area in addition to short and long term parking lots.

Another option for flights out of Jordan is from the King Hussein International Airport (AQJ). This airport has a single passenger terminal with a capacity of 1.5 million passengers annually. There is also a post office, duty free shopping, and cafeterias.

Airport Transportation in Jordan

You can catch your international flight by taking a bus or taxi to Queen Alia Airport and travel time will take around 45 to 60 minutes from central Amman. There is currently no train to Queen Alia Airport and therefore buses and taxis are your best options of ground transportation.

You can travel by bus to King Hussein Airport, but this often takes more than 3 hours from Amman centre. You can also take a private taxi making the journey about an hour.

Plan Your Newcastle Holiday

Visitors travel to Newcastle for a variety of reasons. Many enjoy exploring Newcastle’s three top beaches, connected by a beautiful scenic stroll.
