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 Saudi Arabia

Major Airports in Saudi Arabia

For travel from Riyadh, the major airport is King Khalid International Airport (RUH). This is a huge airport; it serves over 13 million passengers a year and has an attached VIP terminal.

When flying out of Dammam, the closest airport is King Fahd International Airport (DMM). This is the largest airport in terms of area in the world, though it serves a relatively small number of passengers by comparison.

Airport Transportation in Saudi Arabia

Taxis to King Khalid International Airport are available throughout the city. Authorised taxis carry the airport logo and it is compulsory that they have meters. There are no buses to the King Khalid International Airport, but it is possible to get shuttles to and from nearby hotels.

Buses to King Fahd International Airport travel from all nearby cities and the fares are reasonable. Taxis to King Fahd International Airport are also available and take about 60 minutes from the centre of Dammam. At present there is no train service to either of the airports.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Chicago

Book your flights to Chicago with Etihad Airways and lose yourself in the diverse culture of this quintessential American metropolis.

Plan Your Chicago Holiday

Whatever passion drives you and lights the fires of your imagination, Chicago is bound to satisfy. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city from Willis Tower, the tallest building in the western hemisphere. If you’re feeling brave, step out onto one of the glass balconies on the 103rd floor, 412 metres above the ground. For the musically inclined, Chicago is known by many as the blues capital of the world, and enthusiasts will delight in the city’s thriving jazz community. Lincoln Park Zoo offers a free look at a number of exotic animals for those travelling with children.

The summer months are the peak tourism season for the city, so when you travel to Chicago it is best to book your flight as early as possible. However, many indoor activities including shopping, music clubs, fine dining and theatre can still be enjoyed in the winter when tickets to Chicago are more affordable and cheap hotels in Chicago are easier to find. Be sure to check the Deals section of our website for fantastic flight deals to Chicago.
