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.

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.
