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 Brussels

Brussels Airport (BRU) is the main airport in the country and stands out for its modern and efficient services. It’s not a coincidence that it has been rated as the best airport in Europe. It’s situated only 11km from Brussels city centre and is one of the few airports that cater to bicycles.

Airport Transportation in Brussels

One option for transportation is to take a train to Brussels Airport. There are currently four lines that depart from stations throughout the city and go directly to the airport station, located on the first floor. The journey from the city centre takes 17 minutes.

Alternatively, you can take a bus to Brussels Airport. There are several services departing from most key points in the city, but there is also an express service, number 12, which is much faster but only runs from Monday to Friday. Of course, taking a taxi to Brussels Airport is another, more private option.

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