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 Kenya

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), formerly named Nairobi International Airport, is the largest airport in Kenya and is located nine miles from Nairobi city centre. The terminal houses banking facilities, tour operators, and hotel booking operators. There is a full-service restaurant on the fifth floor of the main building and numerous cafes and shops throughout the airport.

Airport Transportation in Kenya

A rail link is currently being built to connect the airport to Nairobi city centre so soon it may be an option to take a train to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You can currently chose to take a bus to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as there are regularly scheduled routes daily from Nairobi city centre to the airport. If you prefer to have more space or a more luxurious ride you can take a taxi to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. This will obviously be a little more expensive and the journey will take about 20 minutes.
