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 Madrid

Major Airports in Madrid

In Madrid, the local and busiest Spanish airport is Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD). It lies approximately 13 km from the city and has four well connected main terminals. As you may expect from a vibrant and bustling hub, Madrid-Barajas Airport offers travellers excellent shops, restaurants, business facilities, advice and tourist information points and comfortable lounges.

Airport Transportation in Madrid

In Madrid, frequent and well-organised transport networks ensure accessing the airport is relatively easy and comfortable. It is possible to take a bus to Madrid-Barajas Airport where all four terminals are serviced by buses and shuttles both on and off-site. The journey from the city to the airport takes around 30 minutes by road.

A taxi to Madrid-Barajas Airport is also easy to arrange although there is an additional charge for airport traffic. Madrid-Barajas Airport has a designated taxi area outside the terminal buildings, making finding a cab relatively easy. The train to Madrid-Barajas Airport is also an option by using the metro, which connects the airport and many city regions.
