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.

Major Airports in Botswana

Sir Seretse Khama International Airport (GBE) is the main international airport in Botswana. The airport was named after the first president of Botswana and consists of one terminal which features a craft shop, a book store, a bank and several snack bars which provide plenty of things to do while you are waiting for your flight.

Airport Transportation in Botswana

Located just outside of Gaborone, it is easy to get to Sir Seretse Khama International Airport. The most economical way is to take a bus to Sir Seretse Khama International Airport. There are many bus companies that travel from all major cities in Botswana, the biggest being Seabelo. If you need something a little more flexible you can take a taxi to Sir Seretse Khama International Airport. There is not currently a passenger train to Sir Seretse Khama International Airport as in 2009 the passenger service was withdrawn by the Botswana Railway.
