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 Queenstown

Book your flights from Queenstown to a number of destinations around the world with Etihad Airways and enjoy the pleasure of a luxurious trip and quick and easy reservation process.

Major Airports in Queenstown

The nearest airport to Queenstown is Queenstown Airport (ZQN) which is located in nearby Otago, a mere 8km from the city centre. When landing in or departing from Queenstown, keep a sharp eye out for the beautiful snow-capped mountains for which the area is known.

Airport Transportation in Queenstown

Taking a taxi to Queenstown Airport from the town centre is fast and painless at any time of the day. Alternatively, the Connectabus service provides a bus to Queenstown Airport from a number of hotels and key meeting points around the city. Unfortunately there is no train to Queenstown Airport, but one can arrange an airport shuttle, limousine or rental car. Renting a car is a fantastic option if you plan on exploring the countryside and want freedom while on holiday.
