Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Major Airports in Hong Kong

Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) is located in Chek Lap Kok, an island reclaimed from the sea for the purpose of building the airport. When it opened in 1998 it boasted the largest passenger terminal in the world. It is just over 30 kilometres from downtown Hong Kong – a short distance by many international airport standards. Passengers feel at home in the airport thanks to the Airport Ambassador Programme, a team of staff that offer assistance, information and promote passenger safety.

Airport Transportation in Hong Kong

The Airport Express (AE) train to Hong Kong Airport is the quickest option, with only three stops from Hong Kong station. It takes 24 minutes and trains leave every 10-12 minutes.

A cheaper alternative is to take a bus to Hong Kong Airport. From central Kowloon it takes 45-50 minutes, but passengers can also depart from various central locations on Hong Kong Island to the airport with a journey time of 50-65 minutes. A taxi to Hong Kong Airport will take around 30 minutes.
