Arriving in Johannesburg

Book your flights to Johannesburg with Etihad Airways and set yourself on a journey to the heart of African splendour.

Plan Your Johannesburg Holiday

Your love for African adventure will surely find fulfilment if you travel to Johannesburg. This journey is also your window of opportunity to explore the historical foundation of South Africa. Tours into the Apartheid Museum and the historic downtown Johannesburg buildings are set to pique your interest and leave you wanting to learn more. The Cradle of Mankind and the Gold Reef City excursion are a good chance to do just that.

You can immerse yourself in the greatest dance festival of the south, FNB Dance Umbrella also held around this time. Tickets to Johannesburg around this time; like every other time of the year, are easy to come by. Cheap hotels in Johannesburg are bountiful approaching the end of January; it is advisable you book for around this time to avoid the crowds.

Interested in Johannesburg? Consider Alicante

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Alicante and discover the differing faces of this diverse city. Go for a walk through the streets lined with palm trees, relax on the beaches, play a round of golf or peruse the markets to find the perfect souvenirs.

Plan Your Alicante Holiday

Known around the world as the capital of the Costa Blanca, the gorgeous beach-filled coastline, it would be silly to travel to Alicante and not even set foot on a beach. After enjoying the beautiful beaches of Tabarca Island and relaxing on San Juan Beach, walk through the urban parks, climb up to the magnificent Santa Bárbara Castle and immerse yourself in the thousands of scents and colours of the medieval street market. Visit Las Cigarreras, a former tobacco factory where contemporary artists now exhibit their masterpieces.

With Etihad Airways you will find great flight deals to Alicante and, as long as you avoid the months of July and August, it won’t be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Alicante. Reserving your tickets to Alicante for travel during March, April, and May is wise because temperatures will be pleasant and there will not be too many tourists.
