Arriving in Riyadh

Book your flights to Riyadh and get ready to discover a way of life that it is truly unique to this part of the world and will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Plan Your Riyadh Holiday

Those who are lucky enough to travel to Riyadh will experience first-hand the lifestyle and culture of the city that has maintained its traditional way of life and yet attained a cosmopolitan character. Experience the desert on a tour of the dunes or even take part in dune bashing, carried out in 4x4 SUVs. Visit the Al-Dir’iyyah, once the home of Saudi royalty with stunning surroundings or for something a little more modern, visit Kingdom Centre, an architecturally impressive skyscraper.

Riyadh experiences some very hot days during the summer months and some extremely cold nights during the winters. Book your tickets to Riyadh avoiding these times of year if possible. Cheap hotels in Riyadh, however, are easier to find during these quieter times of the year. To ensure you get the flight you want, we recommend booking in advance and don’t forget that quality flights deals to Riyadh can be found in the Deals section of our website.

Interested in Riyadh? Consider Amman

Book one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Amman and prepare for a truly memorable experience. This city will captivate you with its energy initially and then gradually reveal its most spectacular qualities through its historic monuments and museums.

Plan Your Amman Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Amman but one of the best is that this city was and continues to be an amazing melting pot of cultures. You can find remains from the Bronze Age and traces of the Romans or you can visit one of the most attractive and mysterious places in the world: Petra. Amman does not only have museums, temples and archaeological sites, though. Its modern character is revealed through events like the Jordan Rally, the motor race that takes place in the Jordan Valley.

In fact, the calendar of events that are celebrated in the city and surrounding areas is so extensive that it is not always easy to find cheap hotels in Amman. Accordingly, we recommend that you book in advance and that you do not miss Etihad Airways’ flight deals to Amman. Finding tickets to Amman at good prices is easier during the winter low season of October to March.
