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 Yemen

Book your flights from Yemen and enjoy the excellent service that only Etihad Airways can provide. We take pride in ensuring that every passenger has a superb flight experience.

Major Airports in Yemen

There are two major airports in Yemen, one in the capital and the other in Aden. Sana'a International Airport (SAH) is located about 13km from the city centre and has Wi-Fi areas, shops, and small restaurants. Aden International Airport (ADE), also is near the city, is a mere 10km from the downtown area, and although small, is an attractive option if you plan to stay near the coast.

Airport Transportation in Yemen

There are buses to Sana'a International Airport that circulate on a regular basis. If you prefer to reduce your travel time, you can always take a taxi to Sana'a International Airport and secure extra luggage space.

You can’t take a train to Sana'a International Airport, but more options are available for travellers considering the other airport. There is also a bus to Aden International Airport, which is inexpensive and makes frequent trips back and forth creating lots of availability.

Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs.
