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.

Major Airports in Kenya

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), formerly named Nairobi International Airport, is the largest airport in Kenya and is located nine miles from Nairobi city centre. The terminal houses banking facilities, tour operators, and hotel booking operators. There is a full-service restaurant on the fifth floor of the main building and numerous cafes and shops throughout the airport.

Airport Transportation in Kenya

A rail link is currently being built to connect the airport to Nairobi city centre so soon it may be an option to take a train to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You can currently chose to take a bus to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as there are regularly scheduled routes daily from Nairobi city centre to the airport. If you prefer to have more space or a more luxurious ride you can take a taxi to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. This will obviously be a little more expensive and the journey will take about 20 minutes.
