Arriving in Istanbul

Book your flights to Istanbul with Etihad Airways and journey to a land of spice and culture. Istanbul is one of the most historically important cities in the world; explore its epic history.

Plan Your Istanbul Holiday

Travel to Istanbul is akin to stepping into a time machine and going on a historical tour through the great empires of the past. You would come to Istanbul as Byzantium and then again as Constantinople and then yet again as the modern day Istanbul. The Roman Empire, The Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Latin Empire all called this beautiful city between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea their capital. An intricate part of the infamous Silk Road, this city has been draped in mystic and teeming with a meshing of cultures since 660 BC.

The summer sees a massive influx of tourists to Istanbul. If you are coming between July and September be sure to book your tickets to Istanbul as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Istanbul are easily found during the winter months as the temperature can drop to around freezing and the tourists stay home. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Major Airports in Wellington

International air travel into and out of Wellington is primarily serviced by Wellington International Airport (WLG), the third-busiest airport in New Zealand, handling over 5.1 million passengers annually. The international terminal of the airport was partially built in 1986 and has been upgraded in a piecemeal fashion periodically since 2005. In 2010, Studio Pacific Architecture completed work on an expansion to the international terminal titled “The Rock,” which was a radical departure from the established architectural and stylistic style of the existing buildings.
