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.

Flying from Praslin Island

Major Airports in Praslin Island

The only airport on the island is Praslin Island Airport (PRI), with a single terminal and runway. It is a focal point for transport to the other principle islands in the Seychelles. As it is relatively small, the airport has minimal facilities. However it does offer hugely discounted car parking facilities.

Airport Transportation in Praslin Island

A public bus to Praslin Island Airport is available and is the cheapest option, but luggage space and journey time are definite factors to consider. It is possible to take a shuttle bus to Praslin Island Airport from your hotel, which may be more convenient than finding the public bus to Praslin Island Airport. At the time of writing there is no train to Praslin Island Airport.

A taxi to Praslin Island Airport is available and is by far the easiest and most convenient option. You will need to reserve your taxi to Praslin Island Airport 48 hours before departure. Transfers between your hotel and the airport will take no longer than 30 minutes.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Praslin Island to Basrah on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
