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. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Flying from Kuwait

Book your flights from Kuwait to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways. With Etihad you enjoy superior service and exceptional aircraft.

Major Airports in Kuwait

The only civilian airport in Kuwait is the Kuwait International Airport (KWI). It is situated 9.6 miles south of Kuwait City in Farwaniyah. Part of the airport is home to the Kuwait Air Force and the Kuwait Air Force Museum so if you find you are early to catch your flight be sure to visit the museum. The airport welcomes almost seven million visitors a year and a new terminal is currently under construction, planned to be open in 2016, to increase the airport’s capacity. The airport houses its own mall designed to resemble a wide body aircraft. The mall houses several high end shops and numerous places to eat.

Airport Transportation in Kuwait

There is no train to Kuwait International Airport. There is a bus to Kuwait International Airport which runs every 30 minutes from 5:30 am to 9:00 pm. It can be boarded at the city centre. You could also take a taxi to Kuwait International Airport if you need the extra storage space or want to cut down your travel time.
