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.

Major Airports in Brisbane

Brisbane Airport (BNE) is a modern facility that is the third busiest airport in Australia in terms of the number of passengers it serves, surpassed only by Sydney and Melbourne airports. This airport has two terminals; the I for international flights and the D for domestic flights, though both are connected via an internal terminal.

Airport Transportation in Brisbane

Taking the train to Brisbane Airport is the fastest and cheapest option of them all. At the airport, there are two stations that maintain constant service, with trains arriving every 15 to 30 minutes throughout the day until 22:00 at night. Alternatively, you can take a bus to Brisbane Airport. There are several lines, some of which connect with the nearest tourist attractions. However, keep in mind that they don’t operate after 21:00 at night, so if you must travel at an inconvenient time you’ll have to take a taxi to Brisbane Airport.
