Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Romania

Book your flights from Romania to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and experience the best in luxury, customer service, and convenience.

Major Airports In Romania

By far the most prominent airport in Romania is Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP), which as of 2012 recorded over 7 million passengers annually. Used as an airbase by the German air force in 1965, Henri Coanda International Airport was not originally Romania’s primary commercial airliner hub. However, a massive runway extension in 1965 of up to 3,500 metres, the longest in Europe at that time, secured its position as Romania’s premier international travel centre.

Airport Transportation In Romania

Located a modest 16km from the centre of Bucharest, journeys to the airport are quick and convenient. You can catch a train to Henri Coanda International Airport from Bucharest’s main railway station, Gara de Nord. Be sure to allow approximately 30 minutes for the journey. A bus to Henri Coanda International Airport is also available at the Gara de Nord railway station. A taxi to Henri Coanda International Airport can be hailed at the railway station as well, though this may not be the most economical option available to travellers.
