Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Major Airports in Finland

In Helsinki, flights depart from the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) which acts as the main international airport for Finland. Initially constructed for the 1952 Summer Olympics, there are children’s rooms, free Wi-Fi is available at any time and you can pick up a good read for the flight at the book swap. Flights from Oulu take off from Oulu Airport (OUL). It is the second busiest airport in Finland after Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in terms of passenger load. Oulu Airport has some of the best disabled facilities around.

Airport Transportation in Finland

In Helsinki, the regional bus to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport leaves from the Central Railway Station every 15 minutes and takes around 40 minutes. A taxi to Helsinki Airport is another option and you can expect a 25 minute journey.

A taxi to Oulu Airport should be arranged at least two hours in advance in order to avoid disappointment. A bus to Oulu Airport from the city centre is available. Unfortunately, as with Helsinki Airport, there are no trains to Oulu Airport.
