Plan Your Jakarta Holiday

Jakarta is a popular tourist destination for plenty of reasons. You can visit the places of worship, historic ports, arts centres, amusement parks and botanic gardens. The Portuguese Church and Sejarah Jakarta Museum attract a lot of tourists throughout the year. Those who have passion for arts will enjoy a unique experience in the Balai Seni Rupa Fine Arts Museum.

The dry season months, from July to October, are the peak tourist season. We recommend that you book your tickets to Jakarta in advance if you are planning to travel to Jakarta during the peak season. To find cheap hotels in Jakarta, it is advisable to travel during the off-peak season when temperatures are cooler. Christmas, Ramadan and other religious holidays are the right times to find the best deals and see the true Jakarta. Visit our Deals section to find superb flight deals to Jakarta all year round.

Flying from Port Elizabeth

Trekking around the world is easy when you book your flights with Etihad Airways. From the time travelers make their reservations to when they board at Port Elizabeth and pick up their bags at their final destination, the service is fabulous.

Major Airports in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) accommodates the city’s outgoing cargo, as well as passengers. Formerly known as H. F. Verwoerd Airport, the airport is located roughly 2 miles south of the city's central business district. This has earned it the name "Ten Minute Airport," as it is no more than a ten minute drive from most locations in Port Elizabeth. PLZ is also extremely busy, serving approximately 1,500,000 passengers flying in and out of the city every year.

Transportation Out of Port Elizabeth Airport

Port Elizabeth Airport is easily accessible, as it is so close to downtown. It can be easily reached by car from Cape Town, as well as from Johannesburg. People can also depend on public buses to get to the airport. Since the World Cup 2010, the bus system has been renovated. A passenger should never have to wait more than 15 minutes at a bus stop. A traveler can also depend on a taxi to get to the airport. More accessible in the daytime than at night, the Toyota Hiaces and VW Caravelles taxicabs are modified to cram in as many passengers as possible.
