Arriving in Istanbul

Book your flights to Istanbul with Etihad Airways and journey to a land of spice and culture. Istanbul is one of the most historically important cities in the world; explore its epic history.

Plan Your Istanbul Holiday

Travel to Istanbul is akin to stepping into a time machine and going on a historical tour through the great empires of the past. You would come to Istanbul as Byzantium and then again as Constantinople and then yet again as the modern day Istanbul. The Roman Empire, The Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Latin Empire all called this beautiful city between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea their capital. An intricate part of the infamous Silk Road, this city has been draped in mystic and teeming with a meshing of cultures since 660 BC.

The summer sees a massive influx of tourists to Istanbul. If you are coming between July and September be sure to book your tickets to Istanbul as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Istanbul are easily found during the winter months as the temperature can drop to around freezing and the tourists stay home. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Major Airports in Ireland

Ireland features four international airports and seven regional airports, though the relatively modest size of the Isle limits the need for domestic air travel. Of Ireland’s approximately 4.5 million inhabitants, roughly a third live within the city of Dublin and the surrounding areas, so it comes as no surprise that Dublin Airport (DUB) is the primary airport for international and domestic air travel. Opened in 1940, Dublin Airport’s two terminals service in excess of 19 million passengers each year.

Airport Transportation in Ireland

Dublin Airport is located just 10 kilometres from Dublin city centre, and is serviced by over 1,000 buses and coaches each day. Travellers can take the bus to Dublin Airport and into the city for a modest ticket price. The trip takes approximately half an hour, depending on traffic. A taxi to Dublin Airport is also available, though at greater cost with no real change in travel time. At the present time, there are no direct trains to Dublin Airport.
