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 Sofia

The only major airport serving the city of Sofia, is Sofia Airport (SOF), it is situated 3 miles to the east of the city centre. It is a single terminal with runway facility and handles approximately 3.5 million passengers a year. The airport has recently been renovated and now has amenities including kiosk, café, ATM and banking. Keep in mind that you have to scan your luggage at the entrance to the airport for security reasons.

Airport Transportation in Sofia

A regular public bus to Sofia Airport runs from the city centre; look for service number 84. However, this is not a dedicated express bus to the airport, so allow around 20 minutes journey time. Some hotels offer a shuttle bus to Sofia Airport.

Currently, there is no train to Sofia International Airport.

A taxi to Sofia International Airport is the most convenient method of transport. We recommend that you pre-book before your departure by taxi to Sofia International Airport. Journey time should be around 10 minutes.
