Arriving in Istanbul

Book your flights to Istanbul with Etihad Airways and journey to a land of spice and culture. Istanbul is one of the most historically important cities in the world; explore its epic history.

Plan Your Istanbul Holiday

Travel to Istanbul is akin to stepping into a time machine and going on a historical tour through the great empires of the past. You would come to Istanbul as Byzantium and then again as Constantinople and then yet again as the modern day Istanbul. The Roman Empire, The Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Latin Empire all called this beautiful city between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea their capital. An intricate part of the infamous Silk Road, this city has been draped in mystic and teeming with a meshing of cultures since 660 BC.

The summer sees a massive influx of tourists to Istanbul. If you are coming between July and September be sure to book your tickets to Istanbul as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Istanbul are easily found during the winter months as the temperature can drop to around freezing and the tourists stay home. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Book your flights from the Maldives with Etihad Airways and prepare to journey to one of hundreds of destinations the world over. Booking with Etihad ensures that you will receive exceptional service for the entirety of your flight experience and enjoy a holiday full of wonderful memories.

Major Airports in the Maldives

Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE), more commonly known as Malé International Airport, is located on Hulhulé Island and is the largest airport in the Maldives. It is only 2.5 km from the capital city of Malé. It offers passengers a first floor lounge with satellite TV and Internet access along with fax and telephone services. There is also a bank, a post office, restaurants and many shops including a pharmacy and a duty free.

Airport Transportation in the Maldives

As the Maldives is made up of a string of islands there is no train or bus to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. You may be able to take a taxi to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, but they are fairly limited on the island so you may have to book in advance. There is, however, a ferry to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport from Malé.
