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 Iraq

Book your flights from Iraq to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy the outstanding service that starts from the time you make your reservation and doesn’t end until you reach your destination.

Major Airports in Iraq

Flights depart from Baghdad at Baghdad International Airport (BGW). The airport has 6 passenger terminals and includes a free zone, business park, and cargo and storage facilities in addition to Wi-Fi access.

From Najaf, travellers can take international flights from the Al Najaf International Airport (NJF). The single terminal airport has a VIP lounge and both departure and arrival halls. Opportunities to shop and dine are also available.

Airport Transportation in Iraq

The best available option is to take a taxi to Baghdad Airport. Although there are shuttle services that allow you to ride a bus to the Baghdad Airport, they are usually shared with other passengers and therefore the trip can take much longer. There is also a subway and a train to Baghdad Airport from the City Centre.

From Najaf city centre, you can catch a taxi, a bus or mini-bus to Al Najaf International Airport.
