Arriving in Doha

Book your flights to Doha with Etihad Airways and experience the Arabian desert in a novel and unique way, exploring a city which is every bit cosmopolitan and yet still remains close to its roots.

Plan Your Doha Holiday

Doha is a traveller’s paradise. You can travel to Doha and take a desert safari and cruise along its glorious sand dunes. If you enjoy exploring the seas then board a traditional dhow boat or hire a yacht and have a view of the Corniche riding the waves. You can also spend some time at the Barzan Olympic Park to have an unusual recreation and relaxation experience.

Doha is located in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula desert and has long scorching summers. Cheap hotels in Doha are readily available during the peak summer months. The best time for you to visit the city is between October and May. The winter months are more comfortable and activities are more readily available. If you are contemplating a visit during the holy month of Ramadan to experience the festivities, you must book your tickets to Doha early. Finding the best flight deals to Doha is easy on the Deals section of our website.

Interested in Doha? Consider Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.
