Arriving in Riyadh

Book your flights to Riyadh and get ready to discover a way of life that it is truly unique to this part of the world and will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Plan Your Riyadh Holiday

Those who are lucky enough to travel to Riyadh will experience first-hand the lifestyle and culture of the city that has maintained its traditional way of life and yet attained a cosmopolitan character. Experience the desert on a tour of the dunes or even take part in dune bashing, carried out in 4x4 SUVs. Visit the Al-Dir’iyyah, once the home of Saudi royalty with stunning surroundings or for something a little more modern, visit Kingdom Centre, an architecturally impressive skyscraper.

Riyadh experiences some very hot days during the summer months and some extremely cold nights during the winters. Book your tickets to Riyadh avoiding these times of year if possible. Cheap hotels in Riyadh, however, are easier to find during these quieter times of the year. To ensure you get the flight you want, we recommend booking in advance and don’t forget that quality flights deals to Riyadh can be found in the Deals section of our website.

Flying from Jordan

Reserve your flights from Jordan to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy award-winning service throughout your flight.

Major Airports in Jordan

For travellers leaving Zizya, international flights leave Queen Alia International Airport (AMM). Located 20 miles south of Amman, this is Jordan’s largest airport. There are two passenger terminals and parking is available at a departure curb side area in addition to short and long term parking lots.

Another option for flights out of Jordan is from the King Hussein International Airport (AQJ). This airport has a single passenger terminal with a capacity of 1.5 million passengers annually. There is also a post office, duty free shopping, and cafeterias.

Airport Transportation in Jordan

You can catch your international flight by taking a bus or taxi to Queen Alia Airport and travel time will take around 45 to 60 minutes from central Amman. There is currently no train to Queen Alia Airport and therefore buses and taxis are your best options of ground transportation.

You can travel by bus to King Hussein Airport, but this often takes more than 3 hours from Amman centre. You can also take a private taxi making the journey about an hour.

Interested in Riyadh? Consider Cairo

Book your flights to Cairo with Etihad Airways and begin your holiday experience surrounded by a great historical civilisation and culture.

Plan Your Cairo Holiday

You must travel to Cairo to experience its ancient marvels and also get a feel of the modern emblems of the city like The Opera House on the island of Zamalek. This place is a living symbol of post modern architecture. Drive up to the Suez Canal to watch a host of migratory birds of prey with the amazing sights of the canal in the backdrop. Just stroll down the Al-Azhar Park to take some stunning pictures of locals and the colourful and varied vegetation that is grown.

The weather in Cairo is moderate and dry most of the time. Summers can be somewhat hot though, which can put a hold on some outdoor activities. Cheap hotels in Cairo are available during the off-peak season in the hotter months. Book your tickets to Cairo in advance to enjoy the fall and spring which are recommended as the best seasons. Don’t forget to look for the best flight deals to Cairo in the Deals section of Etihad’s website to find flights all year round.
