Arriving in Chicago

Book your flights to Chicago with Etihad Airways and lose yourself in the diverse culture of this quintessential American metropolis.

Plan Your Chicago Holiday

Whatever passion drives you and lights the fires of your imagination, Chicago is bound to satisfy. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city from Willis Tower, the tallest building in the western hemisphere. If you’re feeling brave, step out onto one of the glass balconies on the 103rd floor, 412 metres above the ground. For the musically inclined, Chicago is known by many as the blues capital of the world, and enthusiasts will delight in the city’s thriving jazz community. Lincoln Park Zoo offers a free look at a number of exotic animals for those travelling with children.

The summer months are the peak tourism season for the city, so when you travel to Chicago it is best to book your flight as early as possible. However, many indoor activities including shopping, music clubs, fine dining and theatre can still be enjoyed in the winter when tickets to Chicago are more affordable and cheap hotels in Chicago are easier to find. Be sure to check the Deals section of our website for fantastic flight deals to Chicago.

Flying from Burundi

Start planning your next holiday by reserving your flights from Burundi with Etihad Airways. With roomier seats, you can make yourself right at home and stretch out for the most comfortable ride possible.

Major Airports in Burundi

Bujumbura International Airport (BJM) is a major airport in Burundi, named after the capital city of Bujumbura. It is located about 10km away from Bujumbura’s City Centre. From here, travellers can take flights to destinations all around the world.

Gitega Airport (GID) is located in the city of Gitega, 67.16km from Bujumbura Airport in Central Burundi.

Airport Transportation in Burundi

A bus to Bujumbura Airport is the safest and fastest option. Numerous minibuses run the major routes around the country and leave the minibus station near the market area. You can flag them down on the side of the road.

There is also the option of getting a taxi to Bujumbura Airport from Bujumbura city centre for a reasonable price. You can also hire a rental car, but road conditions and concerns for safety make it advisable not to drive after 5pm. There is no train to Bujumbura Airport or Gitega Airport so taking a taxi to Gitega Airport is your best option.
