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 Bulgaria

We ensure that it is a pleasure to travel with Etihad Airways. Book your flights from Bulgaria with us and enjoy the extraordinary service we provide for our passengers.

Major Airports in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport (SOF) is the main airport in the country. In recent years, a second terminal opened to accommodate the increased demand from travellers. It is connected to the original terminal by convenient buses. The second largest airport in the country is Burgas Airport (BOJ), located outside the city of Burgas.

Airport Transportation in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport is 10 km from the city centre. The bus to Sofia Airport is number 84 and it takes about 20 minutes. It is economical, but you are required to pay for an extra ticket if you bring too much luggage with you. It’s better to take a taxi to Sofia Airport in these cases. A subway or train to Sofia Airport is expected to be completed in the near future.

Burgas Airport is located 12 km from the city. The bus to Burgas Airport takes 15 minutes and happens to be the number 15 as well. A taxi to Burgas Airport, however, is probably the most convenient option.

Interested in Colombo? Consider Canberra

Book your flights to Canberra with Etihad Airways and travel in the unsurpassed luxury of our award-winning service.

Plan Your Canberra Holiday

There is a host of reasons to travel to Canberra, especially for those visitors interested in the city’s history and modern architecture. Take a trip to the Canberra Museum and Gallery with its wide array of historical and visual arts, and learn about Australia’s political history at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. For those looking for more adventure you can view the city from above by taking a hot air balloon and see the natural landscape of the surrounding hills.

Canberra’s peak season is during the summer months of December to February when the lakesides will be busy with local holidaymakers. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Canberra well in advance if travelling at this time, particularly if planning to attend one of the myriad of festivals held in February. While this is the busiest time of year, Australia’s capital is more than welcoming throughout the entire year. For cheap hotels in Canberra, consider travelling off-peak season, when it is still warm and dry. Check our popular Deals section for flight deals to Canberra.
