Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Major Airports in Larnaca Town

Larnaca International Airport (LCA) is located close to Larnaca Town, just 2.5 miles to the southwest of the city.

Airport Transportation in Larnaca Town

Taking a taxi to Larnaca International Airport is relatively quick and not overly expensive. There are taxi services readily available 24 hours a day between the airport and various locations throughout the city and along the coast where many popular hotels are located. The ride between the airport and the Larnaca Town centre, for example, takes 15 minutes and costs about €10. Between the airport and much farther locations like Nicosia, Limassol, and Paphos take 35, 45, and 75 minutes and cost around €50, €60, and €105, respectively. The options for taking a bus to Larnaca International Airport are rather limited and there is no train to Larnaca International Airport, so taking a taxi is usually best.
