Arriving in Chengdu

Set amid forests and bodies of water, Chengdu is a miracle of historical preservation mixed with progressive planning. Book your flights to Chengdu with Etihad Airways and get ready to embark on an adventure into Chinese culture and excitement that few other cities in China can match.

Plan Your Chengdu Visit

There are countless reasons to travel to Chengdu. Marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest Buddha statue, cut directly into a wall of red rock. Wander through the Huanglong Scenic Area considered by some to be "A Fairyland on Earth.” Get lost in Chengdu history in one of its many ancient towns. Indulge in a Chinese feast provided by one of Chengdu’s renowned restaurants. Be enthralled at a Sichuanese opera performance.

The peak season in Chengdu runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Chengdu several months in advance if you wish to travel during this busy part of the year. To find cheap hotels in Chengdu, consider travelling in the off-season (December through February) when weather conditions are not as sunny but crowds much smaller. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Chengdu throughout the year.

Major Airports in Kuwait

The only civilian airport in Kuwait is the Kuwait International Airport (KWI). It is situated 9.6 miles south of Kuwait City in Farwaniyah. Part of the airport is home to the Kuwait Air Force and the Kuwait Air Force Museum so if you find you are early to catch your flight be sure to visit the museum. The airport welcomes almost seven million visitors a year and a new terminal is currently under construction, planned to be open in 2016, to increase the airport’s capacity. The airport houses its own mall designed to resemble a wide body aircraft. The mall houses several high end shops and numerous places to eat.

Airport Transportation in Kuwait

There is no train to Kuwait International Airport. There is a bus to Kuwait International Airport which runs every 30 minutes from 5:30 am to 9:00 pm. It can be boarded at the city centre. You could also take a taxi to Kuwait International Airport if you need the extra storage space or want to cut down your travel time.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Aix-en-Provence

Book your flights to Aix-en-Provence with Etihad Airways and walk in the footsteps of Cezanne and Picasso.

Plan Your Aix-en-Provence Holiday

The Festival d’ Aix-en-Provence takes place here every year in June and July. The festival draws thousands of visitors every year and allows them to be immersed in the city’s bright culture and history. To stand in the same room as Cezanne or Picasso is an absolute dream for the lover of classic art. In Aix-en-Provence the art buff can do both. If the home of Pablo Picasso and workshop of Cezanne leave you wanting more you can visit one of the many museums in the area that pay homage to the famous residents.

The best time to visit the area is just before the peak summer season. March to May is an excellent time to see the city in its entire splendour. The countryside has inspired artists for nearly a century. Book your tickets to Aix-en-Provence early to avoid disappointment. Cheap hotels in Aix-en-Provence can be found in the winter and flight deals to Aix-en-Provence can be found year round at Etihad’s Deals section.
