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.

Major Airports in Bucharest

In Bucharest, international flights connect through the Henri Coanda Airport (OTP) which is located in Otopeni. The airport’s two buildings are connected by a pedestrian friendly bridge and while simple in nature, basic amenities such as dining and convenience retail are offered to travellers. The airport offers both short term and long term parking for domestic and international travellers.

Airport Transportation in Bucharest

Passengers departing from Bucharest have several travel options available when heading to Henri Coanda Airport. Departing travellers can take an affordable taxi to Henri Coanda Airport from the city’s centre. Another option is to take a bus to Henri Coanda Airport. Currently two city buses offer transportation service to the airport. Passengers can also take a train to Henri Coanda Airport from the main railroad station, Gara de Nord.
