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.

Major Airports in Kenya

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), formerly named Nairobi International Airport, is the largest airport in Kenya and is located nine miles from Nairobi city centre. The terminal houses banking facilities, tour operators, and hotel booking operators. There is a full-service restaurant on the fifth floor of the main building and numerous cafes and shops throughout the airport.

Airport Transportation in Kenya

A rail link is currently being built to connect the airport to Nairobi city centre so soon it may be an option to take a train to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You can currently chose to take a bus to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as there are regularly scheduled routes daily from Nairobi city centre to the airport. If you prefer to have more space or a more luxurious ride you can take a taxi to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. This will obviously be a little more expensive and the journey will take about 20 minutes.

Plan Your London Holiday

There are countless reasons to travel to London. London’s culinary offerings are vast, from traditional British food to samplings from around the world. Enliven your mind and spirit with a show at the Globe Theatre, an exact replica of the original building that stood during Shakespeare’s day. Get a shiver down your spine as well as a unique perspective on British history at the London Dungeon. Relax and cruise along the Thames River past some of London’s most impressive attractions. Then, once night falls, you can view the entire sparkling city with a night-time ride on the London Eye.

The peak season in London runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve tickets to London several months in advance if you wish to visit during the late spring when the city is at its most beautiful. January and February are the best months to visit if you want cheap hotels in London. Although these months have very cold temperatures, travellers will also have a uniquely authentic experience of the city. Visit our Deals section to find flight deals to London.
