Arriving in Kathmandu

Book your flights to Kathmandu with Etihad Airways and journey into a fabled history in a beautiful land. A city cemented in our minds through song and literature.

Plan Your Kathmandu Holiday

Walking the famed streets of Kathmandu is like stepping through history. A journey down Freak Street reminds us of an iconic time in the 1960s. Just down the road in Durbar Square we are reminded of ancient kings who ruled Nepal and lived in the lavish royal palaces that form the borders of this architectural masterpiece. All of this is dwarfed by the stunning landscape which is dominated by the world tallest mountains including Mt. Everest, jewel of the Himalayas. Travel to Kathmandu should be on everyone’s list.

The tourist season peaks once in the spring and then again in the autumn with winter also increasing in popularity. Kathmandu is truly a destination for all seasons. If you travel during the spring and autumn it is recommended that you book your tickets to Kathmandu as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Kathmandu are easily found during the hot and rainy summer season. Flight deals can always be found with a quick visit to Etihad’s Deals section.

Major Airports in Chicago

Chicago is primarily served by two major airports: O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Midway International Airport (MDW). Of the two, O’Hare is by far the more active, but despite heavy passenger traffic, O’Hare International Airport has been repeatedly voted the ‘Best Airport in North America’ by both Business Traveller and Global Traveller Magazines. It has four terminals and offers all the facilities you would expect.

Airport Transportation in Chicago

O’Hare International Airport is situated only 40 km from downtown Chicago, but the volume of traffic can lengthen the journey. Taking the train to O’Hare International Airport is not only the cheapest option, but also the fastest, with the journey taking around 45 minutes. A taxi to O’Hare International Airport can take as long as 90 minutes. Taking a shuttle or bus to O’Hare International Airport is cheaper but takes about as long as a taxi due to the same traffic problems.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Chicago to Kathmandu on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
