Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure. Visit our Deals section to find the best flight deals to Shanghai for whenever you choose to travel.

Major Airports in Riyadh

The primary domestic and international gateway to Riyadh and beyond is the King Kalid International Airport, which is located some 20 miles outside of Riyadh City in the middle of the desert. As you would expect from one of the largest airports in the world, it has a wide range of facilities that cater to your every need. As well as a variety of eateries and shops, there is also a mosque.

Airport Transportation in Riyadh

No train to King Kalid Airport is available at present. Women drivers are not allowed to drive on public roads, therefore taking a car on hire is not an option for a single woman traveller or if you are an only women group. If choosing car rentals you must be aware of the local driving rules. Metered taxis to King Kalid International Airport are easy to hire from all locations in the city. Many of the city hotels provide a complimentary bus to King Kalid International airport.
