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.

Flying from Praslin Island

Book your flights from Praslin Island to destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy warm, generous Arabian hospitality throughout your journey.

Major Airports in Praslin Island

The only airport on the island is Praslin Island Airport (PRI), with a single terminal and runway. It is a focal point for transport to the other principle islands in the Seychelles. As it is relatively small, the airport has minimal facilities. However it does offer hugely discounted car parking facilities.

Airport Transportation in Praslin Island

A public bus to Praslin Island Airport is available and is the cheapest option, but luggage space and journey time are definite factors to consider. It is possible to take a shuttle bus to Praslin Island Airport from your hotel, which may be more convenient than finding the public bus to Praslin Island Airport. At the time of writing there is no train to Praslin Island Airport.

A taxi to Praslin Island Airport is available and is by far the easiest and most convenient option. You will need to reserve your taxi to Praslin Island Airport 48 hours before departure. Transfers between your hotel and the airport will take no longer than 30 minutes.

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