Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

The Lech Wałęsa Airport in Gdansk (GDN), which was privately owned and operated until 1993, is also widely used.

WAW can be reached by car, bus or taxi. You can take a taxi to Frederic Chopin Airport from the city centre, or if you prefer, you can also take a bus to Frederic Chopin Airport. You can reach the city from Lech Wałęsa Airport in 35 minutes on the bus, or it is possible to catch a taxi for a reasonable price. The train to John Paul II International Airport to downtown Kraków takes only 20 minutes.

Plan Your Dubai Holiday

The reasons to travel to Dubai are myriad and focus on primarily commerce and relaxation. People come for the desert, the extravagant collection of shopping malls, the souks, the golden beaches, the museums, the contemporary attractions and for Dubai’s reputation as “place to do business” in the Arabian Gulf. In 2010 Dubai was the 7th most visited city in the world.

The climate in Dubai is a subtropical desert with scattered humidity throughout the year. During the off-peak season, especially in July and August, temperatures swell and at times can exceed 45 degrees. Travellers seeking cheap hotels in Dubai should attempt to arrive during the off-peak season, but should be prepared for very warm temperatures. If you wish to experience the full range of diverse activities that are available, we recommend that you book your tickets to Dubai as soon as you can and travel in the peak season. We additionally advise that you consult our Deals section to find the best flight deals to Dubai all year-round.
