Flying from Sri Lanka

You can take flights from Sri Lanka to many destinations around the world with Etihad Airways and enjoy the advantages of a high quality flying experience from the time you make your reservation until you arrive at your chosen destination.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.

Interested in Sydney? Consider Mumbai

Book flights to Mumbai with Etihad Airways and get ready to delve into a wonderfully vibrant city that will fascinate you with its contrasts. Awaiting you is a land of colonial relics, modern skyscrapers, impressive temples, and peaceful parks.

Plan Your Mumbai Holiday

There are many ways to discover Mumbai: admiring the colonial jewels along the streets of the Fort neighbourhood, looking deep into the world of Bollywood, appreciating Mongolian paintings at the Prince of Wales Museum, or looking for a bargain in the shops that populate Colaba Causeway. When evening falls, sites such as the boulevard on Marine Drive and the Haji Ali Dargah Mosque offer the best views of the city.

Travel to Mumbai without restricting yourself to its urban areas as there is so much more to see. If you want to take advantage of any of the flight deals to Mumbai, plan a visit to see the impressive caves on Elephanta Island, the waterfalls of Lonavla, and a sunrise at Juhu Beach. Remember that the rainy season runs from June until September, so keep this in mind when you buy tickets to Mumbai, although finding cheap hotels in Mumbai during these months will be easier.
