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 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.
