Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Flying from Burundi

Major Airports in Burundi

Bujumbura International Airport (BJM) is a major airport in Burundi, named after the capital city of Bujumbura. It is located about 10km away from Bujumbura’s City Centre. From here, travellers can take flights to destinations all around the world.

Gitega Airport (GID) is located in the city of Gitega, 67.16km from Bujumbura Airport in Central Burundi.

Airport Transportation in Burundi

A bus to Bujumbura Airport is the safest and fastest option. Numerous minibuses run the major routes around the country and leave the minibus station near the market area. You can flag them down on the side of the road.

There is also the option of getting a taxi to Bujumbura Airport from Bujumbura city centre for a reasonable price. You can also hire a rental car, but road conditions and concerns for safety make it advisable not to drive after 5pm. There is no train to Bujumbura Airport or Gitega Airport so taking a taxi to Gitega Airport is your best option.
