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 Sierra Leone

Book your flights from Sierra Leone to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy the superior service that we provide to our passengers on all of our flights.

Major Airports in Sierra Leone

The Lungi International Airport (FNA) is the primary international airport in Sierra Leone. Located in the coastal town of Lungi, the airport has one terminal and also offers a variety of shops for you to browse and purchase products while you wait for your flight.

Airport Transportation in Sierra Leone

Given the location of the airport, transportation is a little more unique. The best ways to travel are to take the Pelican Water Taxi to Lungi International Airport from Freetown or arrive by ferry boat. Both take between 20-30 minutes. Due to the Sierra Leone River, it is not possible to take a train to Lungi International Airport. While you cannot take a bus to Lungi International Airport, there are buses to Freetown where you can then take the water taxi. For those looking for one last adventure in Sierra Leone, you can also reach the airport by helicopter. While this is the quickest method of transportation it is also the most expensive.
