Arriving in Nairobi

Plan your flights to Nairobi with Etihad Airways to enjoy the scenic landscape and well-kept wildlife sanctuaries that are home to a number of diverse wild animals. Also, take some time to enjoy and appreciate the rich history and culture of the city.

Plan Your Nairobi Holiday

Nairobi is famous for safaris, and tourism is increasing rapidly in this city as a result, with the emphasis on the summer months. Nairobi is a destination which can be enjoyed all year round, however, with plenty to attract visitors. Museums, religious buildings and the opportunity to sample the way of life in this African city all contribute to its popularity.

You can expect to find a good package if you want to travel to Nairobi in the months of June and July when the temperatures are moderate and the safari season is in full swing. We advise you to book your tickets to Nairobi as early as possible if you want to visit the city during the safari season. Cheap hotels in Nairobi are available during peak season but need to be booked well in advance. For information on flight deals to Nairobi please visit our Deals section.

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.
