Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs. Flight deals to Melbourne are available throughout the year, so be sure to check our Deals section before confirming your holiday.

Flying from Freetown

Book your flights from Freetown to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways. We ensure exceptional service from the time of reservation until your arrival at your destination.

Major Airports in Freetown

Freetown is served by the Lungi International Airport (FNA). The airport is located in Lungi, just across the Sierra Leone River from Freetown. Its terminal building is divided into three sections; a General Waiting Hall, a Departures Wing, and an Arrivals Wing. The airport offers many services for your travelling convenience, including ticketing desks for local ground transportation, a post office, a travel agency, a restaurant and an information desk with a lost and found area.

Airport Transportation in Freetown

The Sierra Leone River separates Lungi International Airport from Freetown, so getting a bus or train to Lungi International Airport are not options for passenger transport. Instead, passengers must take a water taxi to Lungi International Airport. The water taxis are a little bigger than a speedboat and will get you to the airport from Freetown in about 30 minutes. As the water taxis can often be crowded we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance. Other options for transport to Lungi International Airport are the ferry, helicopter or hovercraft.

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