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.

Flying from Iraq

Book your flights from Iraq to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy the outstanding service that starts from the time you make your reservation and doesn’t end until you reach your destination.

Major Airports in Iraq

Flights depart from Baghdad at Baghdad International Airport (BGW). The airport has 6 passenger terminals and includes a free zone, business park, and cargo and storage facilities in addition to Wi-Fi access.

From Najaf, travellers can take international flights from the Al Najaf International Airport (NJF). The single terminal airport has a VIP lounge and both departure and arrival halls. Opportunities to shop and dine are also available.

Airport Transportation in Iraq

The best available option is to take a taxi to Baghdad Airport. Although there are shuttle services that allow you to ride a bus to the Baghdad Airport, they are usually shared with other passengers and therefore the trip can take much longer. There is also a subway and a train to Baghdad Airport from the City Centre.

From Najaf city centre, you can catch a taxi, a bus or mini-bus to Al Najaf International Airport.
