Arriving in Lagos

Book your flights to Lagos with Etihad Airways and become entranced with the sights and sounds of Africa’s second fastest growing city.

Plan Your Lagos Holiday

Lagos is one of the largest cities in all of Africa and the Port of Lagos is one of the busiest in Africa as well. This is a city that is quickly becoming a sought after vacation destination with its modern infrastructure and plethora of ocean beaches along the Atlantic. Not far from the 5 star hotels that line the beaches are several entertaining and informative tourist attractions like the Nigerian National Museum and Iga Indungaran.

Like most West African countries, Nigeria experiences a dry summer season, shouldered by very wet seasons, it’s the winter dry season when the weather is at its most pleasant. The peak tourist season to travel to Lagos is between December and March, and it is best to buy your tickets to Lagos early if coming at this time of year. Cheap hotels in Lagos are easy to find from April to July, when the weather is warm, but the rain is heavy. Flight deals to Lagos can be found year round with our Deals section.

Flying from China

Reserve your flights from China to many intriguing destinations and travel in comfort when you fly with Etihad Airways.

Major Airports in China

From Beijing, passengers can fly from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). As the busiest airport in Asia, Beijing Capital is often crowded and so boarding passengers should plan to arrive early. There are numerous facilities, including the global kitchen where passengers can dine on the cuisines of many different nationalities.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) serves the city of Shanghai. The airport is located about 30km from Shanghai city centre and should not be confused with Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) on the west side, which serves mostly domestic flights.

Airport Transportation in China

The futuristic Maglev Train to Shanghai Pudong Airport runs from the Longyang Road Metro Station, taking less than 8 minutes to travel 30 km. A taxi to Shanghai Pudong Airport takes between 45 and 60 minutes. Ten different bus lines offer a bus service to Shanghai Pudong Airport from Shanghai city centre.

A train to Beijing Capital Airport is the best travel option with the Airport express running directly to Terminals 2 and 3, taking 20 minutes from the Dongzhimen area in Beijing city.

Interested in Lagos? Consider Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.
