Arriving in Dubai

Book your flights to Dubai with Etihad Airways and get ready to enjoy the exciting local fusion of tourist paradise and commercial hub.

Plan Your Dubai Holiday

The reasons to travel to Dubai are myriad and focus on primarily commerce and relaxation. People come for the desert, the extravagant collection of shopping malls, the souks, the golden beaches, the museums, the contemporary attractions and for Dubai’s reputation as “place to do business” in the Arabian Gulf. In 2010 Dubai was the 7th most visited city in the world.

The climate in Dubai is a subtropical desert with scattered humidity throughout the year. During the off-peak season, especially in July and August, temperatures swell and at times can exceed 45 degrees. Travellers seeking cheap hotels in Dubai should attempt to arrive during the off-peak season, but should be prepared for very warm temperatures. If you wish to experience the full range of diverse activities that are available, we recommend that you book your tickets to Dubai as soon as you can and travel in the peak season. We additionally advise that you consult our Deals section to find the best flight deals to Dubai all year-round.

Major Airports in Mali

Bamako-Sénou International Airport (BKO) is the primary airport in Mali, located 15km from the capital city of Bamako. One of six of Mali’s international airports, Bamako-Sénou also offers connections to domestic airports around the country, allowing tourists to reach attractions that are further afield. Customer parking is conveniently located nearby, as well as accommodation

International flights from the western Mali city of Kayes depart from Kayes Airport (KYS), situated on the Senegal River. As you prepare for your flight, enjoy free Internet access and relax in the business lounge.

Airport Transportation in Mali

Travellers can get a bus to Bamako-Sénou International Airport, which departs from Bamako three times per day, stops to collect passengers at major hotels, and is provided free of charge by the airport. Those leaving from Kati, Kita, Negala or Kayes can use the Dakar-Niger railway to take a train to Bamako Airport. Of course, the quickest way is to get a taxi to Bamako-Sénou International Airport, which takes 20 minutes from the capital and has a fixed price agreed by the airport with the taxi providers.

Interested in Dubai? Consider Bangkok

Book flights to Bangkok with Etihad Airways and discover its secrets. Impressive temples, modern skyscrapers, and neighbourhoods where almost nothing has changed in the last 200 years will welcome you.

Plan Your Bangkok Holiday

Travel to Bangkok and go on an adventure of discovery. You'll find extraordinary and bizarre buildings like a colossal museum in the form of a three-headed elephant, a building identical to a robot, and a 17-story tower surrounded by a huge dragon. If you decide to buy tickets to Bangkok, there will be a surprise around every corner. Only here will you be able to encounter a stunning temple like Wat Arun, and then after crossing a river, find a modern shopping mall like Siam Paragon or MBK.

This city of contrasts seems fast-paced to tourists at first, but behind its skyscrapers a little more exploring will reveal, on the side west of the River, traditional houses and merchants who still sail in their boats full of fruits. With the flight deals to Bangkok offered by Etihad Airways, you will be able to see both sides of this city, but for cheap hotels in Bangkok remember that the low season is from May to August.
