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 Oman

Major Airports in Oman

Muscat International Airport (MCT), also called Seeb International Airport, is the largest airport in Oman. It is situated 32 km from Muscat city centre and welcomes eight million visitors a year. It offers a wide array of eating establishments from quick and easy to a full service restaurant. The airport features a great selection of high-end shops. It also offers free Wi-Fi to passengers and a currency exchange. Another airport in Oman is Salalah Airport (SLL), which is much smaller and serves the resort area of Oman.

Airport Transportation in Oman

The transportation infrastructure in Oman is quite good and is expected to improve further with a proposed rail link, which would enable passengers to take a train to Muscat International Airport. There are also several bus lines so taking a bus to Muscat International Airport is relatively easy. As always, if you require more room and do not mind paying a little extra you can always take a private taxi to Muscat International Airport.

Plan Your Canberra Holiday

There is a host of reasons to travel to Canberra, especially for those visitors interested in the city’s history and modern architecture. Take a trip to the Canberra Museum and Gallery with its wide array of historical and visual arts, and learn about Australia’s political history at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. For those looking for more adventure you can view the city from above by taking a hot air balloon and see the natural landscape of the surrounding hills.

Canberra’s peak season is during the summer months of December to February when the lakesides will be busy with local holidaymakers. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Canberra well in advance if travelling at this time, particularly if planning to attend one of the myriad of festivals held in February. While this is the busiest time of year, Australia’s capital is more than welcoming throughout the entire year. For cheap hotels in Canberra, consider travelling off-peak season, when it is still warm and dry. Check our popular Deals section for flight deals to Canberra.
