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.

Major Airports in Rome

Flights from Rome depart from the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (FCO), otherwise known as Fiumicino Airport. Located 21.7 miles southwest of central Rome, Fiumicino has 4 terminals: T1, T2, T3 and T5. Each terminal has a large array of shops and dining options, including Burberry, Swarovski, Ferrari Spazio Bollicine and Frescobaldi. For those transfer passengers who wish to drop off their luggage while waiting for their connection, the airport offers the ADR luggage deposit service, located in the Arrivals Area of Terminal 3.

Airport Transportation in Rome

There are several transportation options between Rome and the airport. The non-stop bus to Fiumicino Airport from the centrally located Termini Station takes around 55 minutes. Another solution is to catch an express train to Fiumicino Airport, which will get you to the airport in 31 minutes and is preferable to the regular train, which takes 1 hour and 10 minutes. A taxi to Fiumicino Airport is another alternative and will take about 50 minutes.
