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 Belarus

Book your flights from Belarus with Etihad Airways to hundreds of destinations around the world. You will experience superior service from the second you approach the counter to the second you leave the airport at your destination of choice.

Major Airports in Belarus

Minsk International Airport (MSQ) is the main airport in Belarus and is situated 26 miles from the capital city of Minsk. It serves almost six million people per year. There is a currency exchange, a 24-hour restaurant, and a few small shops including a duty free shop. The entire terminal also offers free Wi-Fi, but you will need to get an access card.

Airport Transportation in Belarus

It is possible to take a bus to Minsk International Airport from Vostochnyi or Moskovskii bus terminals. The trip will usually take around an hour and a half. You can also take a taxi to Minsk International Airport but it is much more expensive as the airport is located a good distance away from the city centre. Although if you prefer the extra leg room and are carrying a lot of luggage, this is probably your best option. There is no train to Minsk International Airport.
