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 Qatar

Doha International Airport (DOH) is the major international airport in Qatar, serving more than 18 million passengers each year with numbers increasing rapidly. This is mostly due to the perfection of its placement in the centre of most major air routes. It is undergoing constant improvement and refurbishments thanks to multi-million dollar investments and renovations happening all year-round, including the building of an entirely new, state of the art airport just two and a half miles from the current location.

Airport Transportation in Qatar

Taxis to Doha International Airport are the main and most popular way to travel to the airport and are available near the terminal and throughout the city itself with a journey time of around 40 minutes. There is also a limousine service to Doha International Airport that is available at varying prices, but offer additional comfort and privileges. Additionally, most local hotels will provide a coach shuttle bus to Doha Airport at a reasonable price. There is no train to Doha Airport.
