Arriving in Chengdu

Set amid forests and bodies of water, Chengdu is a miracle of historical preservation mixed with progressive planning. Book your flights to Chengdu with Etihad Airways and get ready to embark on an adventure into Chinese culture and excitement that few other cities in China can match.

Plan Your Chengdu Visit

There are countless reasons to travel to Chengdu. Marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest Buddha statue, cut directly into a wall of red rock. Wander through the Huanglong Scenic Area considered by some to be "A Fairyland on Earth.” Get lost in Chengdu history in one of its many ancient towns. Indulge in a Chinese feast provided by one of Chengdu’s renowned restaurants. Be enthralled at a Sichuanese opera performance.

The peak season in Chengdu runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Chengdu several months in advance if you wish to travel during this busy part of the year. To find cheap hotels in Chengdu, consider travelling in the off-season (December through February) when weather conditions are not as sunny but crowds much smaller. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Chengdu throughout the year.

Flying from Bulgaria

We ensure that it is a pleasure to travel with Etihad Airways. Book your flights from Bulgaria with us and enjoy the extraordinary service we provide for our passengers.

Major Airports in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport (SOF) is the main airport in the country. In recent years, a second terminal opened to accommodate the increased demand from travellers. It is connected to the original terminal by convenient buses. The second largest airport in the country is Burgas Airport (BOJ), located outside the city of Burgas.

Airport Transportation in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport is 10 km from the city centre. The bus to Sofia Airport is number 84 and it takes about 20 minutes. It is economical, but you are required to pay for an extra ticket if you bring too much luggage with you. It’s better to take a taxi to Sofia Airport in these cases. A subway or train to Sofia Airport is expected to be completed in the near future.

Burgas Airport is located 12 km from the city. The bus to Burgas Airport takes 15 minutes and happens to be the number 15 as well. A taxi to Burgas Airport, however, is probably the most convenient option.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Aix-en-Provence

Book your flights to Aix-en-Provence with Etihad Airways and walk in the footsteps of Cezanne and Picasso.

Plan Your Aix-en-Provence Holiday

The Festival d’ Aix-en-Provence takes place here every year in June and July. The festival draws thousands of visitors every year and allows them to be immersed in the city’s bright culture and history. To stand in the same room as Cezanne or Picasso is an absolute dream for the lover of classic art. In Aix-en-Provence the art buff can do both. If the home of Pablo Picasso and workshop of Cezanne leave you wanting more you can visit one of the many museums in the area that pay homage to the famous residents.

The best time to visit the area is just before the peak summer season. March to May is an excellent time to see the city in its entire splendour. The countryside has inspired artists for nearly a century. Book your tickets to Aix-en-Provence early to avoid disappointment. Cheap hotels in Aix-en-Provence can be found in the winter and flight deals to Aix-en-Provence can be found year round at Etihad’s Deals section.
