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.

Major Airports in Rome

Flights from Rome depart from the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (FCO), otherwise known as Fiumicino Airport. Located 21.7 miles southwest of central Rome, Fiumicino has 4 terminals: T1, T2, T3 and T5. Each terminal has a large array of shops and dining options, including Burberry, Swarovski, Ferrari Spazio Bollicine and Frescobaldi. For those transfer passengers who wish to drop off their luggage while waiting for their connection, the airport offers the ADR luggage deposit service, located in the Arrivals Area of Terminal 3.

Airport Transportation in Rome

There are several transportation options between Rome and the airport. The non-stop bus to Fiumicino Airport from the centrally located Termini Station takes around 55 minutes. Another solution is to catch an express train to Fiumicino Airport, which will get you to the airport in 31 minutes and is preferable to the regular train, which takes 1 hour and 10 minutes. A taxi to Fiumicino Airport is another alternative and will take about 50 minutes.
