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.

Flying from Praslin Island

Book your flights from Praslin Island to destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy warm, generous Arabian hospitality throughout your journey.

Major Airports in Praslin Island

The only airport on the island is Praslin Island Airport (PRI), with a single terminal and runway. It is a focal point for transport to the other principle islands in the Seychelles. As it is relatively small, the airport has minimal facilities. However it does offer hugely discounted car parking facilities.

Airport Transportation in Praslin Island

A public bus to Praslin Island Airport is available and is the cheapest option, but luggage space and journey time are definite factors to consider. It is possible to take a shuttle bus to Praslin Island Airport from your hotel, which may be more convenient than finding the public bus to Praslin Island Airport. At the time of writing there is no train to Praslin Island Airport.

A taxi to Praslin Island Airport is available and is by far the easiest and most convenient option. You will need to reserve your taxi to Praslin Island Airport 48 hours before departure. Transfers between your hotel and the airport will take no longer than 30 minutes.

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