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 Sunshine Coast

When the time comes to fly out of the Sunshine Coast in Australia, Etihad Airways is ideal for travel. A passenger can enjoy the comfort, the luxury and the efficiency of the best airline that departs from Down Under.

Sunshine Coast’s Major Airport

Formerly known as the Maroochydore Airport, Sunshine Coast Airport, MCY, is ideal for traveling out of Australia’s Sunshine Coast, Queensland. On top of daily flights to Melbourne and Sydney, the facility connects passengers to the rest of the world. The Sunshine Coast Airport is located approximately 10 km, or 6.2 miles, north of Maroochydore. The local traffic volume is low and trekking to MCY can be a breeze.

Getting to the Sunshine Coast Airport

There is only one flight terminal in the Sunshine Coast Airport. The facility is also one-story high. There is no need for stairs, escalators or elevators. Regardless, MCY can be considered a state of the art airport with TV monitors, baggage carousels, cabs waiting outside the terminal and car rental return desks for Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty. Shuttle services provide door to door transportation for Sunshine Coast residents and visitors leaving town. There is even a sizable lounge for a traveler to catch a bite before flying out of the Sunshine Coast.

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