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.

Major Airports in Sofia

The only major airport serving the city of Sofia, is Sofia Airport (SOF), it is situated 3 miles to the east of the city centre. It is a single terminal with runway facility and handles approximately 3.5 million passengers a year. The airport has recently been renovated and now has amenities including kiosk, café, ATM and banking. Keep in mind that you have to scan your luggage at the entrance to the airport for security reasons.

Airport Transportation in Sofia

A regular public bus to Sofia Airport runs from the city centre; look for service number 84. However, this is not a dedicated express bus to the airport, so allow around 20 minutes journey time. Some hotels offer a shuttle bus to Sofia Airport.

Currently, there is no train to Sofia International Airport.

A taxi to Sofia International Airport is the most convenient method of transport. We recommend that you pre-book before your departure by taxi to Sofia International Airport. Journey time should be around 10 minutes.

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