Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Major Airports in Kalimantan

Sepinggan Airport (BPN) is located about 5km to the east of the city of Balikpapan. It is a unique facility that reflects the local architecture and offers modern and functional services. It is currently the busiest airport in Borneo, with an average of 5.5 million passengers a year.

Airport Transportation in Kalimantan

The primary mode of transportation on the island is minibuses, which are quick and inexpensive. However, due to their irregular schedules, a better alternative, if you are in a hurry or have a lot of luggage, is to take a taxi to Sepinggan Airport. 

At present, there is no train to Sepinggan Airport, but you can always take a public bus. From cities such as Samarinda, Bontang, Sangatta, and Kalimantan itself, there are various bus lines to Sepinggan Airport that have relatively regular schedules.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Kalimantan to Basrah on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
