Arriving in Beijing

Book your flights to Beijing with Etihad Airways and let the constant hum of culture and progress permeate your senses.

Plan your Beijing Holiday

There are so many reasons to travel to Beijing. A sports enthusiast may go to tour the facilities that were created in and around this vibrant city for the 2008 Olympic Games. A lover of ancient history can enjoy the numerous and formidable ancient buildings and learn more about their cultural and historical significance. The Imperial Palace alone is comprised of 800 different and unique buildings. Be sure to buy your tickets to Beijing vey far in advance if you plan on coming during the Spring Festival. It attracts thousands of tourists every year.

The prime season for tourist travel to Beijing is during the summer months and then again during the Spring Festival. A good time to avoid the tourist influx and still have excellent weather is September and October. Cheap hotels in Beijing are also more abundant during this time. Spring is another excellent time to come, outside of the Spring Festival of course. Flight deals to Beijing are available throughout the year and are easy to find with Etihad’s Deals section.

Flying from Port Elizabeth

Trekking around the world is easy when you book your flights with Etihad Airways. From the time travelers make their reservations to when they board at Port Elizabeth and pick up their bags at their final destination, the service is fabulous.

Major Airports in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) accommodates the city’s outgoing cargo, as well as passengers. Formerly known as H. F. Verwoerd Airport, the airport is located roughly 2 miles south of the city's central business district. This has earned it the name "Ten Minute Airport," as it is no more than a ten minute drive from most locations in Port Elizabeth. PLZ is also extremely busy, serving approximately 1,500,000 passengers flying in and out of the city every year.

Transportation Out of Port Elizabeth Airport

Port Elizabeth Airport is easily accessible, as it is so close to downtown. It can be easily reached by car from Cape Town, as well as from Johannesburg. People can also depend on public buses to get to the airport. Since the World Cup 2010, the bus system has been renovated. A passenger should never have to wait more than 15 minutes at a bus stop. A traveler can also depend on a taxi to get to the airport. More accessible in the daytime than at night, the Toyota Hiaces and VW Caravelles taxicabs are modified to cram in as many passengers as possible.
