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 Rwanda

Book your flights from Rwanda to literally hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways. Enjoy the exemplary service and luxurious amenities that you have come to expect from Etihad Airways.

Major Airports in Rwanda

Rwanda is a small country and really only has one major international airport. Kigali International Airport (KGL) is situated 8 miles outside of the nation’s capital city. It has three terminals and offers free Wi-Fi in the waiting areas. Partially due to the fact that the country is gaining in popularity, the government is planning to build a new airport close to Kigali International Airport to accommodate more visitors. The Bugesara International Airport is expected to be completed by 2016.

Airport Transportation in Rwanda

Taking a train to Kigali International Airport is not presently an option. Rwanda is a country that is increasing its infrastructure rapidly and may offer some type of rail service in the future. Currently, taking a taxi to Kigali International Airport is the best way to get there. If you are feeling adventurous you could always hire a motorcycle taxi instead. There is no direct bus to Kigali International Airport.
