Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.

Major Airports in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport (SOF) is the main airport in the country. In recent years, a second terminal opened to accommodate the increased demand from travellers. It is connected to the original terminal by convenient buses. The second largest airport in the country is Burgas Airport (BOJ), located outside the city of Burgas.

Airport Transportation in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport is 10 km from the city centre. The bus to Sofia Airport is number 84 and it takes about 20 minutes. It is economical, but you are required to pay for an extra ticket if you bring too much luggage with you. It’s better to take a taxi to Sofia Airport in these cases. A subway or train to Sofia Airport is expected to be completed in the near future.

Burgas Airport is located 12 km from the city. The bus to Burgas Airport takes 15 minutes and happens to be the number 15 as well. A taxi to Burgas Airport, however, is probably the most convenient option.

Interested in Almaty? Consider Langkawi

Book your flights to Langkawi with Etihad Airways and prepare to be inspired by this area’s majestic beauty and awe inspiring scenery.

Plan Your Langkawi Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Langkawi, an island chain officially known as the ‘Jewel of Kedah’. The area was named a World GeoPark by UNESCO in 2007 due to its diverse and stunning landscape. The numerous mountains, spectacular beaches, breathtaking waterfalls, extensive cave systems and fantastic tourism infrastructure make this area an absolute must. Another reason to come here is the fact that the island was designated as a duty free area by the Malaysian government, which makes it an inexpensive place to shop to your heart’s content, so you may want to bring an extra suitcase.

Typically the rainy season runs from March to November, with the wettest month being August. This is considered off season for tourists and cheap hotels in Langkawi are easy to find. December to February is the dry season and we recommend that you buy your tickets to Langkawi early during these months. Flight deals to Langkawi are always easy to find no matter what time of year with Etihad’s Deals section.
