Plan Your Chennai Holiday

With so many options when you travel to Chennai, this is a city break which can easily also be a resort holiday by the sea. With stunningly ornate and breathtaking temples to visit, artistic fairs to browse, cool beaches to relax upon and cuisine to cater to every taste, India will remain with you long after you leave.

Because of high humidity and temperatures, the early summer months can be quieter travel periods, but for cooler, yet still hot, days early in the year is a perfect time to travel. Chennai can be affected by monsoons and storms, which generally peak in the late autumn months. In such a bustling atmosphere it is hard to avoid the crowds and tickets to Chennai should be purchased well in advance. Cheap hotels in Chennai are readily available and many luxurious hotels are easily affordable. To find the best flight deals to Chennai, be sure to check our Deals section.

Flying from Rwanda

Book your flights from Rwanda to literally hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways. Enjoy the exemplary service and luxurious amenities that you have come to expect from Etihad Airways.

Major Airports in Rwanda

Rwanda is a small country and really only has one major international airport. Kigali International Airport (KGL) is situated 8 miles outside of the nation’s capital city. It has three terminals and offers free Wi-Fi in the waiting areas. Partially due to the fact that the country is gaining in popularity, the government is planning to build a new airport close to Kigali International Airport to accommodate more visitors. The Bugesara International Airport is expected to be completed by 2016.

Airport Transportation in Rwanda

Taking a train to Kigali International Airport is not presently an option. Rwanda is a country that is increasing its infrastructure rapidly and may offer some type of rail service in the future. Currently, taking a taxi to Kigali International Airport is the best way to get there. If you are feeling adventurous you could always hire a motorcycle taxi instead. There is no direct bus to Kigali International Airport.

Interested in Chennai? Consider Wellington

Be sure to book your flights to Wellington with Etihad Airways to guarantee yourself a luxurious and relaxing flight. Once on the ground, immerse yourself in Wellington’s breath-taking scenery and interesting blend of cultures.

Plan Your Wellington Visit

The best time of year to travel to Wellington is from September to April when the bulk of the city’s cultural festivals take place. The city is filled with numerous attractions including museums, botanical gardens and picturesque mountain ranges. Wellington also features the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where the first treaty between the native population and the British Empire was signed, as well as the Treaty House, the residence originally built for Wellington’s first British resident and his family. Wellington also features a thriving film and theatre scene for travellers seeking a bit of cultured diversion.

Etihad Airways offers various flight deals to Wellington throughout the year, though travellers may wish to book their tickets to Wellington between late spring and early fall to coincide with the best local festivals. If cultural celebration doesn’t appeal to you, it is fairly simple to find cheap hotels in Wellington during the off-season. The temperatures are fairly mild never dropping to less than zero degrees Celsius.
