Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Major Airports in France

Paris’ main airport is the Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and is located just outside of the city. Each of the three terminals are easily accessible by taxi, and for busy passengers, Terminal 1 even has access to a hair salon to get you ready on the go.

For those travelling from the Alps, the Lyon-Saint-Exupéry International Airport (LYS) has three terminals that can easily be walked to from the drop-and-go car park. The airport has two hotels available if you wish to stay nearby.

Airport Transportation in France

From the city centre in Paris it is easy to take a RATP bus to Charles de Gaulle Airport (65 minutes). For those who prefer a little more privacy, a taxi to Charles de Gaulle Airport is another option (45 minutes).

Travel by train to Lyon-Saint-Exupéry International Airport is convenient and economical, with the Lyon-Saint-Exupéry Station located right at the airport. The high-speed TGV trains arrive from multiple locations across France, so you can access the alpine airport with ease.
