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.

Flying from Praslin Island

Book your flights from Praslin Island to destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy warm, generous Arabian hospitality throughout your journey.

Major Airports in Praslin Island

The only airport on the island is Praslin Island Airport (PRI), with a single terminal and runway. It is a focal point for transport to the other principle islands in the Seychelles. As it is relatively small, the airport has minimal facilities. However it does offer hugely discounted car parking facilities.

Airport Transportation in Praslin Island

A public bus to Praslin Island Airport is available and is the cheapest option, but luggage space and journey time are definite factors to consider. It is possible to take a shuttle bus to Praslin Island Airport from your hotel, which may be more convenient than finding the public bus to Praslin Island Airport. At the time of writing there is no train to Praslin Island Airport.

A taxi to Praslin Island Airport is available and is by far the easiest and most convenient option. You will need to reserve your taxi to Praslin Island Airport 48 hours before departure. Transfers between your hotel and the airport will take no longer than 30 minutes.

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