Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Inverness

You can count on Etihad Airways for the first class service to make your flights from Inverness a luxury event from the time you board the plane until you reach your destination.

Major Airports in Inverness

From Dalcross, international flights leave from Inverness Airport (INV). The airport is 8 miles from the city of Inverness and serves as the primary gateway for passengers throughout the Scottish Highlands and the United Kingdom. Inverness Airport has long-term parking available for those travellers who wish to drive themselves to the airport and then leave their vehicles there until they return. Short term parking is also available for dropping off or picking up passengers. Inverness is also the largest of the 10 airports in the Scottish Highlands and surrounding areas.

Airport Transportation in Inverness

Although the Inverness Railway Station does operate a nearby rail system, there is no direct train to Inverness Airport. One option is to take a taxi or bus to the railways station to reach your destination. You can take a taxi to Inverness Airport in about 15 minutes. There is also a bus to Inverness Airport from Academy Street by Eastgate Centre which takes a little longer.
