Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Major Airports in Washington D.C.

Local and International flights into Washington D.C. are primarily serviced by three major airports in the district. The closest and most convenient of these is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), which is located a mere 4.8 km from city centre. The airport opened in 1941 and was a replacement for Hoover Field, an airport so small that its runways crossed city streets, and had to be manned by guards to halt automobile traffic during plane landing and take-off.

Airport Transportation in Washington D.C.

The most convenient ground transport option is the train to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, provided by the Washington Metro Yellow and Blue lines. A bus to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is available when the train is not running. If you need greater timing flexibility, you can also hail a taxi to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, though at a greater cost than the other available alternatives.
