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 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 Colombo? 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.
