Arriving in Istanbul

Book your flights to Istanbul with Etihad Airways and journey to a land of spice and culture. Istanbul is one of the most historically important cities in the world; explore its epic history.

Plan Your Istanbul Holiday

Travel to Istanbul is akin to stepping into a time machine and going on a historical tour through the great empires of the past. You would come to Istanbul as Byzantium and then again as Constantinople and then yet again as the modern day Istanbul. The Roman Empire, The Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Latin Empire all called this beautiful city between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea their capital. An intricate part of the infamous Silk Road, this city has been draped in mystic and teeming with a meshing of cultures since 660 BC.

The summer sees a massive influx of tourists to Istanbul. If you are coming between July and September be sure to book your tickets to Istanbul as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Istanbul are easily found during the winter months as the temperature can drop to around freezing and the tourists stay home. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Flying from Iraq

Book your flights from Iraq to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy the outstanding service that starts from the time you make your reservation and doesn’t end until you reach your destination.

Major Airports in Iraq

Flights depart from Baghdad at Baghdad International Airport (BGW). The airport has 6 passenger terminals and includes a free zone, business park, and cargo and storage facilities in addition to Wi-Fi access.

From Najaf, travellers can take international flights from the Al Najaf International Airport (NJF). The single terminal airport has a VIP lounge and both departure and arrival halls. Opportunities to shop and dine are also available.

Airport Transportation in Iraq

The best available option is to take a taxi to Baghdad Airport. Although there are shuttle services that allow you to ride a bus to the Baghdad Airport, they are usually shared with other passengers and therefore the trip can take much longer. There is also a subway and a train to Baghdad Airport from the City Centre.

From Najaf city centre, you can catch a taxi, a bus or mini-bus to Al Najaf International Airport.
