Arriving in Melbourne

Book your flights to Melbourne with Etihad Airways and enjoy this destination where outdoor living and excellent shopping form a busy yet relaxed destination. There’s plenty of culture in Melbourne alongside modern art and performance.

Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs. Flight deals to Melbourne are available throughout the year, so be sure to check our Deals section before confirming your holiday.

Major Airports in Chicago

Chicago is primarily served by two major airports: O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Midway International Airport (MDW). Of the two, O’Hare is by far the more active, but despite heavy passenger traffic, O’Hare International Airport has been repeatedly voted the ‘Best Airport in North America’ by both Business Traveller and Global Traveller Magazines. It has four terminals and offers all the facilities you would expect.

Airport Transportation in Chicago

O’Hare International Airport is situated only 40 km from downtown Chicago, but the volume of traffic can lengthen the journey. Taking the train to O’Hare International Airport is not only the cheapest option, but also the fastest, with the journey taking around 45 minutes. A taxi to O’Hare International Airport can take as long as 90 minutes. Taking a shuttle or bus to O’Hare International Airport is cheaper but takes about as long as a taxi due to the same traffic problems.

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