Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Major Airports in the Philippines

Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) is by far the busiest airport in the Philippines. It is located just outside Manila and serves 31 million passengers a year. It houses numerous shops and restaurants.

Airport Transportation in the Philippines

There are nine different bus routes serving the airport so taking a bus to Ninoy Aquino International Airport is fairly easy and inexpensive. Most of the routes travel down Epifanio de los Santos Avenue en route to the airport. Taking a train to Ninoy Aquino International Airport is also reasonably easy although somewhat indirect. The Manila LRT serves the airport complex via Baclaran Station and Philippine National Railways connects with the airport via Nichols Station. The third option by train is to take the MRT to Taft Avenue Station and from there a shuttle bus will take you to Terminal 3. You can also take a taxi to Ninoy Aquino International Airport or be adventurous and take a jeepney instead.

Interested in Basrah? Consider Al Ain

With your flights to Al Ain on Etihad Airways, you will find yourself in the beautiful Garden City where you’ll feel a distant past and return to embrace modernity all with the course of a few minutes. This land encompasses the spirit of the Emirates and preserves an ancient heritage that has earned it the designation as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Plan your Al Ain Holiday

There are a thousand reasons to travel to Al Ain: explore its modern roads in search of the most original sculptures, walk its green gardens in stark contrast to the desert that surrounds the city, look for a bargain in the old bazaar, step through the doors of its fortresses and into the past, or brave the desert sands on a camel in search of Qattara.

If you’re thinking of buying some tickets to Al Ain, keep in mind that the time preferred by residents of the nearby Abu Dhabi is the summer, so it will be harder to find flights and cheap hotels in Al Ain. It would be wise to consider a visit during the winter season when there are excellent flight deals to Al Ain and temperatures are milder.
