Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Flying from Sarajevo

Travel out of Sarajevo could not be any easier than with Etihad Airways. From the time you book your flight until you step off of the plane in your final destination, your journey will be a pleasure.

Sarajevo’s Major Airports

The Sarajevo International Airport, SJJ, is located just outside the city. It is also known as Butmir Airport. Its thriving commercial flight business is growing by roughly 10% every year. In fact, SJJ had 600,000 passengers, more than every other airport in Bosnia and Herzegovina combined.

An extension of the passenger departure terminal is currently taking place. An extra 7,000 square meters is being built. Upgrades and expansions to the taxiway is also taking place. The international airport will then be connected to the Sarajevo Airport Center retail center. In other words, Sarajevo’s residents can get some shopping done on their way out of town.

Airport Transportation in Sarajevo

The Sarajevo International Airport is located a little more than 6 km southwest of the railway station, in the suburb of Butmir. A passenger can rely on Bus #36 to the stop located on the main road outside the airport parking lot. You can pick up the bus every 30 minutes. A person can also depend on the tram to the Ilidža terminal and get Bus #37. The second stop is SJJ. Hopping into a taxi can be rather expensive for the 1.6 KM drive from Downtown Sarajevo.

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