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.

Toronto’s Major Airports

Toronto Pearson International Airport, YYZ, is the busiest airport in the lively city. Located 22.5 km, or 14 miles, northwest of Downtown Toronto, the grand facility is named the 14th Prime Minister of Canada, Lester B. Pearson. Pearson stands as the biggest and busiest airport in all of Canada. Approximately 35 million passengers fly in and out of the airport every year.

John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, YHM, is designed for use by large airplanes flying overseas. It features a massive runway made as asphalt. Located 65 KM, or 40 miles, from Downtown Toronto, Hamilton International serves as an alternate for the Toronto Pearson Airport.

Airport Transportation in Toronto

To make a flight on time, the Toronto Airport Express can get a passenger from Downtown to Lester B. Pearson Airport any day of the week. The bus picks up at passengers every 30 minutes from various spots throughout the city. Catching a taxi or a limo to the airport is also fairy easy, even if they both cost a passenger a pretty penny.
