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. Visit our Deals section to find the best flight deals to Shanghai for whenever you choose to travel.

Flying from Seychelles

If you are looking for a perfect holiday, booking flights from Seychelles with Etihad Airways is the solution. For all your flights, we guarantee you a comfortable trip and in-flight service that is second to none.

Major Airports in Seychelles

The main airport is Seychelles International Airport (SEZ). It’s called Aéroport de La Pointe Larue by locals, and is located on the island of Mahé. Although it’s relatively small, this does not prevent it from receiving international flights and offering travellers excellent services.

It has small duty-free shops where you can buy souvenirs and find popular brands of products for low prices. Plenty of bars and restaurants are available as well as a currency exchange booth. As this airport is a hub for connecting flights among the rest of the islands, regular domestic flights depart to Praslin, Bird, Denis, Fregate and Alphonse.

Airport Transportation in Seychelles

The airport is located just 11 km from the capital, Victoria. A convenient bus to Seychelles International Airport circulates every half hour, but at present there is no train to Seychelles International Airport. If you will be travelling after 19:30 at night, simply take a taxi to Seychelles International Airport.

Plan Your Samara Holiday

When you travel to Samara you will find that with traditional Russian culture, history and beautiful scenery, this is an ideal holiday spot.

Spend an exciting Sunday afternoon perusing the stalls of the Kubychev Square market searching for the perfect souvenir or trinket to take home.
