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.

Flying from Jeddah

Book your flights from Jeddah with Etihad Airways and enjoy your journey to your desired destination in the exquisite comfort afforded by our award-winning services.

Major Airports in Jeddah

The King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED) is a little less than 16 kilometres from the main city and is the major airport servicing Jeddah. With a host of restaurants, cafés, fast food outlets, comfortable lounges and conference rooms, all the needs of the traveller are provided for.

Airport Transportation in Jeddah

A taxi to King Abdulaziz International Airport is the most convenient mode of transport as there are dedicated companies that provide this service. Taking a bus to King Abdulaziz International Airport is also a good idea if you have limited luggage. However, it might take longer than a taxi as the bus makes numerous stops along the way. There is no train to King Abdulaziz International Airport, so tourists must choose between a taxi and the local bus service, making your decision based on the time and luggage that you have.

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