Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Sarajevo

Travel out of Sarajevo could not be any easier than with Etihad Airways. From the time you book your flight until you step off of the plane in your final destination, your journey will be a pleasure.

Sarajevo’s Major Airports

The Sarajevo International Airport, SJJ, is located just outside the city. It is also known as Butmir Airport. Its thriving commercial flight business is growing by roughly 10% every year. In fact, SJJ had 600,000 passengers, more than every other airport in Bosnia and Herzegovina combined.

An extension of the passenger departure terminal is currently taking place. An extra 7,000 square meters is being built. Upgrades and expansions to the taxiway is also taking place. The international airport will then be connected to the Sarajevo Airport Center retail center. In other words, Sarajevo’s residents can get some shopping done on their way out of town.

Airport Transportation in Sarajevo

The Sarajevo International Airport is located a little more than 6 km southwest of the railway station, in the suburb of Butmir. A passenger can rely on Bus #36 to the stop located on the main road outside the airport parking lot. You can pick up the bus every 30 minutes. A person can also depend on the tram to the Ilidža terminal and get Bus #37. The second stop is SJJ. Hopping into a taxi can be rather expensive for the 1.6 KM drive from Downtown Sarajevo.

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