Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Flying from Seychelles

If you are looking for a perfect holiday, booking flights from Seychelles with Etihad Airways is the solution. For all your flights, we guarantee you a comfortable trip and in-flight service that is second to none.

Major Airports in Seychelles

The main airport is Seychelles International Airport (SEZ). It’s called Aéroport de La Pointe Larue by locals, and is located on the island of Mahé. Although it’s relatively small, this does not prevent it from receiving international flights and offering travellers excellent services.

It has small duty-free shops where you can buy souvenirs and find popular brands of products for low prices. Plenty of bars and restaurants are available as well as a currency exchange booth. As this airport is a hub for connecting flights among the rest of the islands, regular domestic flights depart to Praslin, Bird, Denis, Fregate and Alphonse.

Airport Transportation in Seychelles

The airport is located just 11 km from the capital, Victoria. A convenient bus to Seychelles International Airport circulates every half hour, but at present there is no train to Seychelles International Airport. If you will be travelling after 19:30 at night, simply take a taxi to Seychelles International Airport.
