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.

Flying from Hong Kong

Book flights from Hong Kong with Etihad Airways for the perfect start to your trip, travelling in comfort with one of the world’s leading airlines.

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.
