Arriving in Beijing

Book your flights to Beijing with Etihad Airways and let the constant hum of culture and progress permeate your senses.

Plan your Beijing Holiday

There are so many reasons to travel to Beijing. A sports enthusiast may go to tour the facilities that were created in and around this vibrant city for the 2008 Olympic Games. A lover of ancient history can enjoy the numerous and formidable ancient buildings and learn more about their cultural and historical significance. The Imperial Palace alone is comprised of 800 different and unique buildings. Be sure to buy your tickets to Beijing vey far in advance if you plan on coming during the Spring Festival. It attracts thousands of tourists every year.

The prime season for tourist travel to Beijing is during the summer months and then again during the Spring Festival. A good time to avoid the tourist influx and still have excellent weather is September and October. Cheap hotels in Beijing are also more abundant during this time. Spring is another excellent time to come, outside of the Spring Festival of course. Flight deals to Beijing are available throughout the year and are easy to find with Etihad’s Deals section.

It is a single terminal with runway facility and handles approximately 3.5 million passengers a year. The airport has recently been renovated and now has amenities including kiosk, café, ATM and banking.

Airport Transportation in Sofia

A regular public bus to Sofia Airport runs from the city centre; look for service number 84. However, this is not a dedicated express bus to the airport, so allow around 20 minutes journey time. Some hotels offer a shuttle bus to Sofia Airport.

Currently, there is no train to Sofia International Airport.

A taxi to Sofia International Airport is the most convenient method of transport. We recommend that you pre-book before your departure by taxi to Sofia International Airport. Journey time should be around 10 minutes.
