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 Riyadh

The primary domestic and international gateway to Riyadh and beyond is the King Kalid International Airport, which is located some 20 miles outside of Riyadh City in the middle of the desert. As you would expect from one of the largest airports in the world, it has a wide range of facilities that cater to your every need. As well as a variety of eateries and shops, there is also a mosque.

Airport Transportation in Riyadh

No train to King Kalid Airport is available at present. Women drivers are not allowed to drive on public roads, therefore taking a car on hire is not an option for a single woman traveller or if you are an only women group. If choosing car rentals you must be aware of the local driving rules. Metered taxis to King Kalid International Airport are easy to hire from all locations in the city. Many of the city hotels provide a complimentary bus to King Kalid International airport.
