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.

Flying from Egypt

You can travel to hundreds of destinations around the world when you book your flights from Egypt with Etihad Airways and take control of your flight details with the easy-to-use modify option.

Major Airports in Egypt

Start your trip from Egypt at Luxor Airport (LXR) in Luxor city, conveniently located near the popular tourist sites of the Valley of the Kings and the River Nile. The airport has a number of restaurants and a duty-free shop among other amenities.

Cairo Airport (CAI) operates from the city of Cairo where it handles more passengers than any other airport in Egypt. It is about 15 km from the business district of Cairo, providing easy access to tourists and business travellers alike.

Airport Transportation in Egypt

Although you will need to make sure the driver uses the meter when you take a taxi to Cairo Airport, it is probably your best and most comfortable option for transportation. It isn’t unusual for the bus to Cairo Airport to be crowded and the train service doesn’t run all the way to the airport.

There is no bus service or train to Luxor Airport, but a taxi service is available throughout Luxor.
