Arriving in Frankfurt

Book your flights to Frankfurt with Etihad Airways and prepare to experience a city that perfectly combines rich tradition with new and fresh cultural awakenings.

Plan Your Frankfurt Holiday

We would need an entire book to tell you all the reasons to travel to Frankfurt for your next holiday. Here are just a few to whet your appetite; the German Film Museum takes guests through the magical history of film from optical illusions all the way through the newest film technologies; you can take in a football match at Commerzbank Arena and cheer on the Eintracht Frankfurt footballers.

The peak seasons in Frankfurt run from the end of May to early August and around the winter holiday season, late November through December. If you plan to visit during these popular times, we recommend reserving your tickets to Frankfurt several months in advance. Frankfurt has events and activities all year round, however, such as the Book Fair in October, the world’s largest trade fair for books. Consider travelling in the off-season period in order to find cheap hotels in Frankfurt and to avoid the crowds. Don’t forget to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Frankfurt throughout the year.

Interested in Frankfurt? Consider 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.
