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 Yemen

There are two major airports in Yemen, one in the capital and the other in Aden. Sana'a International Airport (SAH) is located about 13km from the city centre and has Wi-Fi areas, shops, and small restaurants. Aden International Airport (ADE), also is near the city, is a mere 10km from the downtown area, and although small, is an attractive option if you plan to stay near the coast.

Airport Transportation in Yemen

There are buses to Sana'a International Airport that circulate on a regular basis. If you prefer to reduce your travel time, you can always take a taxi to Sana'a International Airport and secure extra luggage space.

You can’t take a train to Sana'a International Airport, but more options are available for travellers considering the other airport. There is also a bus to Aden International Airport, which is inexpensive and makes frequent trips back and forth creating lots of availability.

Plan Your Newcastle Holiday

Visitors travel to Newcastle for a variety of reasons. Many enjoy exploring Newcastle’s three top beaches, connected by a beautiful scenic stroll.
