Arriving in Chengdu

Set amid forests and bodies of water, Chengdu is a miracle of historical preservation mixed with progressive planning. Book your flights to Chengdu with Etihad Airways and get ready to embark on an adventure into Chinese culture and excitement that few other cities in China can match.

Plan Your Chengdu Visit

There are countless reasons to travel to Chengdu. Marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest Buddha statue, cut directly into a wall of red rock. Wander through the Huanglong Scenic Area considered by some to be "A Fairyland on Earth.” Get lost in Chengdu history in one of its many ancient towns. Indulge in a Chinese feast provided by one of Chengdu’s renowned restaurants. Be enthralled at a Sichuanese opera performance.

The peak season in Chengdu runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Chengdu several months in advance if you wish to travel during this busy part of the year. To find cheap hotels in Chengdu, consider travelling in the off-season (December through February) when weather conditions are not as sunny but crowds much smaller.

Major Airports in Oman

Muscat International Airport (MCT), also called Seeb International Airport, is the largest airport in Oman. It is situated 32 km from Muscat city centre and welcomes eight million visitors a year. It offers a wide array of eating establishments from quick and easy to a full service restaurant. The airport features a great selection of high-end shops. It also offers free Wi-Fi to passengers and a currency exchange. Another airport in Oman is Salalah Airport (SLL), which is much smaller and serves the resort area of Oman.

Airport Transportation in Oman

The transportation infrastructure in Oman is quite good and is expected to improve further with a proposed rail link, which would enable passengers to take a train to Muscat International Airport. There are also several bus lines so taking a bus to Muscat International Airport is relatively easy. As always, if you require more room and do not mind paying a little extra you can always take a private taxi to Muscat International Airport.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Lisbon

Book your flights to Lisbon with Etihad Airways and experience the unique intermingling of the old and the new in this astonishingly beautiful city.

Plan Your Lisbon Holiday

Travel to Lisbon is an opportunity to see renaissance history walks side by side with a handsome modern city. As you walk through the beautiful old parts of town with their cobblestone streets that serpentine through the narrow alleyways, you are transported back to a simpler time. Once you have found yourself to be lost in the past, around the next corner lies the modern day shimmering beauty of Parque Das Nações. This park was built for the European Expo in 1998 and is a visually stunning area. Be sure to visit its world class aquarium as well.

The summer months are the peak tourist season and Lisbon can get fairly crowded at this time. Be sure to buy your tickets to Lisbon as early as possible if you’re planning on visiting between March and October. Cheap hotels in Lisbon are getting tough to find but the winter months may be a good time to look. Flight deals to Lisbon are available with the Deals section on the Etihad website.
