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 Amman

Book your flights from Amman and reach your destination in award-winning comfort. Etihad Airways has always been known for being a company that takes care of its passengers, and many of them repeat the experience again and again.

Major Airports in Amman

Queen Alia International Airport (AMM) is located in Zizya, about 32 km south of Amman. It is the main airport in Jordan and hosts 5.5 million passengers a year. It was recently renovated to give it a more modern style and to improve many of its services for passengers. There are plenty of waiting areas, duty-free shops where you can buy souvenirs, play areas for children and restaurants.

Airport Transportation in Amman

Taking a taxi to Queen Alia International Airport is a quick and convenient option, especially if you are short on time or you have a lot of luggage to take with you. Keep in mind that the journey takes about 50 minutes. There is also a bus to Queen Alia International Airport. It is a much cheaper alternative, and it comes by every half hour before 5.00 pm and every hour after that. At present, there is no train to Queen Alia International Airport.
