Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Interested in Colombo? Consider Ballina

Pick out your flights to Ballina through Etihad Airways and uncover the secrets of this beautiful Australian city. You will be captivated by its breath-taking landscapes and the calm, slow-paced lifestyle that seems incompatible with the stress of big cities.

Plan Your Ballina Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Ballina, but without a doubt the main attraction is its natural environments. Go down Pacific Drive, a coastal road that passes along an endless number of beaches that will leave you speechless, and then change course to head towards Greater Blue Mountains Drive, the road that leads to the famous World Heritage Site. Don't forget to take a break in Byron Bay, the home of alternative tourism.

A spectacular beautifully landscaped golf course, galleries featuring renowned artists, and the Jingi Wahla tunnel, a unique site where you can get an intimate look at Aboriginal mythology through colourful murals, are just some the other attractions waiting for you. Etihad Airways offers you tempting flight deals to Ballina. Before buying tickets to Ballina, however, remember that the best time to travel is from October to March, though finding cheap hotels in Ballina is easiest during the rainy months from May to September.
