Arriving in Nairobi

Plan your flights to Nairobi with Etihad Airways to enjoy the scenic landscape and well-kept wildlife sanctuaries that are home to a number of diverse wild animals. Also, take some time to enjoy and appreciate the rich history and culture of the city.

Plan Your Nairobi Holiday

Nairobi is famous for safaris, and tourism is increasing rapidly in this city as a result, with the emphasis on the summer months. Nairobi is a destination which can be enjoyed all year round, however, with plenty to attract visitors. Museums, religious buildings and the opportunity to sample the way of life in this African city all contribute to its popularity.

You can expect to find a good package if you want to travel to Nairobi in the months of June and July when the temperatures are moderate and the safari season is in full swing. We advise you to book your tickets to Nairobi as early as possible if you want to visit the city during the safari season. Cheap hotels in Nairobi are available during peak season but need to be booked well in advance. For information on flight deals to Nairobi please visit 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 Nairobi? Consider Lusaka

Book your flights to Lusaka with Etihad Airways and prepare for an exotic African adventure of contrast and lasting memories. Experience the hustle and bustle of a cityscape in the throes of development alongside great expanses of protected and preserved natural habitat.

Plan Your Lusaka Visit

Zambia is a fascinating destination; it is located in one of the more watery African regions with lakes, waterfalls and predictable rainfall. Lusaka still maintains its African appeal and gives access to a host of opportunities to experience native wildlife, either through excursions or specialist facilities like reptile parks. Museums tell of the intriguing history and culture of the city. The best months to travel to Lusaka are between June and October when the recent rains ensure a rich habitat.

Given the popularity of safari trips, we recommend that you book tickets to Lusaka early so as not to miss the season for wildlife watching. Finding cheap hotels in Lusaka is relatively easy as there are plenty to choose from. More specialist accommodation, such as safari camps, can be booked up quickly, so make arrangements early to avoid disappointment.
