Arriving in Istanbul

Book your flights to Istanbul with Etihad Airways and journey to a land of spice and culture. Istanbul is one of the most historically important cities in the world; explore its epic history.

Plan Your Istanbul Holiday

Travel to Istanbul is akin to stepping into a time machine and going on a historical tour through the great empires of the past. You would come to Istanbul as Byzantium and then again as Constantinople and then yet again as the modern day Istanbul. The Roman Empire, The Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Latin Empire all called this beautiful city between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea their capital. An intricate part of the infamous Silk Road, this city has been draped in mystic and teeming with a meshing of cultures since 660 BC.

The summer sees a massive influx of tourists to Istanbul. If you are coming between July and September be sure to book your tickets to Istanbul as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Istanbul are easily found during the winter months as the temperature can drop to around freezing and the tourists stay home. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Flying from Malaysia

You can book flights from Malaysia to many international destinations with Etihad Airways and experience a high quality flight that will always meet your expectations.

Major Airports in Malaysia

Most of the international flights are handled through the Satellite terminal within the complex, which boasts a gorgeous jungle boardwalk, complete with waterfall and greenery.

Penang International Airport (PEN) serves the city of George Town. Despite being described as one of the busiest airports in the country, travellers will typically find that it is not over crowded.
