Arriving in Seoul

Depend on Etihad Airways for your next flight to Seoul. There is no more efficient way to get to the exciting land of exquisite beauty and culture.

Plan Your Seoul Getaway

There is so much to do in Seoul that a visitor never has to be stuck in his or her room watching TV. For instance, Gyeongbok Palace was originally built in the late 1300s. English and Spanish tours are available for visitors to learn more about Korea's architectural traditions, as well as the nation’s customs. Bukchon Village features two palaces, along with quaint cafés, restaurants and art galleries, such as the Art Sonje Center. The War memorial of Korea displays generations’ worth of guns, tanks and planes.

Nature lovers will love climbing the picturesque mountains known as Bugaksan peak. The friendly neighborhood of Itaewon is full of lively bars, clubs, restaurants and shops. People can buy furniture and art work, as well as tailored suits. People can then go out dancing at one of the hottest spots in Seoul, Club Volume. Similarly, the Namdaemun market contains a seemingly endless stretch of street-vendor stalls. For those looking to take a romantic stroll, Cheonggyecheon is a 5.8 km, or 3.6 mile stream with gorgeous waterfalls and dozens of overhead bridges. Of course, you can always hop on a Seoul City Tour Bus to take in as much Korean culture as you can.

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.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Port Elizabeth to Seoul on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
