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.

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.
