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 Greece

The main international airport in Greece is the Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH). This airport has two terminals serving passengers. If you feel like you have missed out on any of the rich and vibrant culture that Greece has to offer there is still an opportunity to see more within the airport. Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos collaborates with many Greek museums and institutions to have a variety of exhibits and cultural activities available to passengers of the airport.

If you are trying to take a bus to Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos there are four bus lines that run directly to the airport. The most convenient transportation for those with tight schedules is to take a taxi to Athens International Airport. For those who prefer to take the train, there is also a rail station adjacent to the airport, with an elevated walkway leading to the terminals.

Interested in Colombo? Consider 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.
