Arriving in Muscat

Plan Your Muscat Holiday

Travel to Muscat and discover everything you hope for; fine weather, wonderful cuisine, modern facilities, history and culture. The landscape is both mountainous and oceanic, allowing every taste to be catered for. Modern shopping malls co-exist with traditional markets and older regions of Muscat are walled and gated as if time has stood still.

As Muscat has so much to offer, in such a unique geographic area, it continues to be a timeless destination. We advise that you book your tickets to Muscat well in advance if you wish to visit in the popular springtime, when various international events are held in pleasant temperatures. To find cheap hotels in Muscat seek accommodation outside of the Muscat district and consider booking outside of January to later February. Later in the year flight deals to Muscat can also be better as the temperatures increase.

Flying from Maldives

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.

Plan Your Cairo Holiday

You must travel to Cairo to experience its ancient marvels and also get a feel of the modern emblems of the city like The Opera House on the island of Zamalek. This place is a living symbol of post modern architecture. Drive up to the Suez Canal to watch a host of migratory birds of prey with the amazing sights of the canal in the backdrop. Just stroll down the Al-Azhar Park to take some stunning pictures of locals and the colourful and varied vegetation that is grown.

The weather in Cairo is moderate and dry most of the time. Summers can be somewhat hot though, which can put a hold on some outdoor activities. Cheap hotels in Cairo are available during the off-peak season in the hotter months. Book your tickets to Cairo in advance to enjoy the fall and spring which are recommended as the best seasons.
