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.

Flying from Podgorica

Traveling out of Podgorica could not be any easier than with Etihad Airways. From the time you get to the airport until you pick up your baggage at your final destination, every step of your journey will be a pleasure.

Podgorica’s Major Airport

The Podgorica Airport, TGD, is located no more than 15 km, or 9 miles, south of the city. Also referred as to Golubovci Airport by locals, TGD is the main international airport for the nation of Montenegro. There is only one terminal. Yet, it serves over 650,000 passengers a year. The airport has been connected to the metro area with a single street. Every day, a traveler can catch flights to Belgrade, Budapest, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Ljubljana, Niš, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Vienna, Zagreb and Zürich.

While public buses can take a passenger to the Podgorica Airport, they do not run all of the time. In other words, riding in a taxi may be the best way to go.

Since December 2009, all taxis have a flat rate of €15 to get a passenger to TGD from anywhere in the city. Of course, a person can always negotiate with a taxi driver to get a better rate.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Podgorica to Colombo on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
