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 Singapore

Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) is located in Changi, about 20km from Singapore’s business district. It’s one of the busiest airports in Asia, but the calibre of services it offers are second to none. Considered to be one of the best airports in the world, you’ll find relaxing gardens, a swimming pool, cinemas, playgrounds, and reclining seats within its three terminals.

Airport Transportation in Singapore

Singapore occupies a comparatively small geographic space for a population of its magnitude, so driving is not recommended. The fastest and cheapest option is to take a train to Singapore Changi Airport, as the station is conveniently located just inside the airport.

There is also a bus to Singapore Changi Airport, number 36, which makes stops at each of the airport’s terminals. If you are going to be arriving extremely late at night or travelling with a lot of luggage, the best option is to take a taxi to Singapore Changi Airport, which takes around 30 minutes.

Interested in Basrah? Consider Al Ain

With your flights to Al Ain on Etihad Airways, you will find yourself in the beautiful Garden City where you’ll feel a distant past and return to embrace modernity all with the course of a few minutes. This land encompasses the spirit of the Emirates and preserves an ancient heritage that has earned it the designation as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Plan your Al Ain Holiday

There are a thousand reasons to travel to Al Ain: explore its modern roads in search of the most original sculptures, walk its green gardens in stark contrast to the desert that surrounds the city, look for a bargain in the old bazaar, step through the doors of its fortresses and into the past, or brave the desert sands on a camel in search of Qattara.

If you’re thinking of buying some tickets to Al Ain, keep in mind that the time preferred by residents of the nearby Abu Dhabi is the summer, so it will be harder to find flights and cheap hotels in Al Ain. It would be wise to consider a visit during the winter season when there are excellent flight deals to Al Ain and temperatures are milder.
