Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Aberdeen

Major Airports in Aberdeen

Aberdeen Airport (ABZ) is located on the outskirts of the city, about 9 km to the north-west. Although it is not a large airport, it is one of the busiest in the United Kingdom and it has all the modern services you would expect. From shops and restaurants to currency exchange services, the airport is well equipped.

Airport Transportation in Aberdeen

From the city, there is a regular bus to Aberdeen Airport. Line 727 departs from Aberdeen bus station and Line 80 makes a stop at the train station. Be aware that buses are available every 30 minutes but they do not operate at night.

You can also take a taxi to Aberdeen Airport. On a busy day, the trip can take up to 25 minutes, so plan your departure slightly early. Another alternative is to take the train to Dyce station, a journey of about 3 km, from there you can hire a taxi for your journey to Aberdeen Airport.

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