Arriving in Chicago

Book your flights to Chicago with Etihad Airways and lose yourself in the diverse culture of this quintessential American metropolis.

Plan Your Chicago Holiday

Whatever passion drives you and lights the fires of your imagination, Chicago is bound to satisfy. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city from Willis Tower, the tallest building in the western hemisphere. If you’re feeling brave, step out onto one of the glass balconies on the 103rd floor, 412 metres above the ground. For the musically inclined, Chicago is known by many as the blues capital of the world, and enthusiasts will delight in the city’s thriving jazz community. Lincoln Park Zoo offers a free look at a number of exotic animals for those travelling with children.

The summer months are the peak tourism season for the city, so when you travel to Chicago it is best to book your flight as early as possible. However, many indoor activities including shopping, music clubs, fine dining and theatre can still be enjoyed in the winter when tickets to Chicago are more affordable and cheap hotels in Chicago are easier to find. Be sure to check the Deals section of our website for fantastic flight deals to Chicago.

Major Airports in Uganda

There are 46 airports in Uganda, but only 5 feature paved runways. The primary airport for international travel is Entebbe International Airport (EBB), which was built in 1928 and was originally used by English RAF Reconnaissance biplanes. Since that time, Entebbe International Airport has grown considerably, servicing over 1.2 million international travellers each year.

Airport Transportation in Uganda

Entebbe International Airport is located on the shores of Lake Victoria, one of the African Great Lakes, and is approximately 41km southwest of Kampala, Uganda’s capital and largest city. While there is not a bus to Entebbe International Airport, there is a good selection of taxis available. We recommend obtaining a ‘Special Hire’ taxi to Entebbe International Airport, which can get you to there, from Kampala, in just under 45 minutes. There is currently no train to Entebbe International Airport.
