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.

Major Airports in Finland

In Helsinki, flights depart from the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) which acts as the main international airport for Finland. Initially constructed for the 1952 Summer Olympics, there are children’s rooms, free Wi-Fi is available at any time and you can pick up a good read for the flight at the book swap. Flights from Oulu take off from Oulu Airport (OUL). It is the second busiest airport in Finland after Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in terms of passenger load. Oulu Airport has some of the best disabled facilities around.

Airport Transportation in Finland

In Helsinki, the regional bus to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport leaves from the Central Railway Station every 15 minutes and takes around 40 minutes. A taxi to Helsinki Airport is another option and you can expect a 25 minute journey.

A taxi to Oulu Airport should be arranged at least two hours in advance in order to avoid disappointment. A bus to Oulu Airport from the city centre is available. Unfortunately, as with Helsinki Airport, there are no trains to Oulu Airport.
