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.

Major Airports In Porto

Porto is served by the Francisco de Sa Carneiro Airport, which is located 11 km from the city centre. Francisco de Sa Carneiro Airport is presently the 2nd busiest airport in the country, and was voted the 3rd Best Airport in Europe in 2011.

Airport Transportation In Porto

The most convenient ground transportation in the city is the Porto Metro, which provides a train to Francisco de Sa Carneiro Airport, but also links that facility to a number of notable landmarks in Porto, including the Estádio do Dragão and the Sao Bento Rail Station. The train takes half an hour to arrive at the airport from the city. Porto also has an extensive bus network that will allow travellers to take a bus to Francisco de Sa Carneiro Airport. Alternatively, travellers can obtain a taxi to Francisco de Sa Carneiro Airport, though given the abundance of cheaper and more convenient transport methods, we recommend travellers stick to the Porto Metro.
