Arriving in Muscat

Book your flights to Muscat with Etihad Airways and prepare to see both the ancient and modern come together in this wondrous destination. Muscat offers a wealth of experiences from riding magnificent Arabian horses to enjoying a balmy sunset at Qurum Beach.

Plan Your Muscat Holiday

Travel to Muscat and discover everything you hope for; fine weather, wonderful cuisine, modern facilities, history and culture. The landscape is both mountainous and oceanic, allowing every taste to be catered for. Modern shopping malls co-exist with traditional markets and older regions of Muscat are walled and gated as if time has stood still.

As Muscat has so much to offer, in such a unique geographic area, it continues to be a timeless destination. We advise that you book your tickets to Muscat well in advance if you wish to visit in the popular springtime, when various international events are held in pleasant temperatures. To find cheap hotels in Muscat seek accommodation outside of the Muscat district and consider booking outside of January to later February. Later in the year flight deals to Muscat can also be better as the temperatures increase.

We ensure that it is a pleasure to travel with Etihad Airways. Book your flights from Bulgaria with us and enjoy the extraordinary service we provide for our passengers.

Major Airports in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport (SOF) is the main airport in the country. In recent years, a second terminal opened to accommodate the increased demand from travellers. It is connected to the original terminal by convenient buses. The second largest airport in the country is Burgas Airport (BOJ), located outside the city of Burgas.

Airport Transportation in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport is 10 km from the city centre. The bus to Sofia Airport is number 84 and it takes about 20 minutes. It is economical, but you are required to pay for an extra ticket if you bring too much luggage with you. It’s better to take a taxi to Sofia Airport in these cases. A subway or train to Sofia Airport is expected to be completed in the near future.

Burgas Airport is located 12 km from the city. The bus to Burgas Airport takes 15 minutes and happens to be the number 15 as well. A taxi to Burgas Airport, however, is probably the most convenient option.

Interested in Muscat? Consider Medina

Book your flights to Medina with Etihad Airways and prepare to visit a destination which is globally renowned and steeped in historical religious significance. Beautiful mosques and archaeology await.

Plan Your Medina Holiday

There are limitations on who can travel to Medina, given its status as a world pilgrimage site and the highly organised checks which ensure mosques and other sites are properly used and protected. However, the area is steeped in tradition and resonates with meaning, making it a very special place to visit.

Medina has an arid and hot climate with warm, settled winds. Despite the heat, Medina is famed for its plantations of palms and dates and has a thriving success producing these plants. Medina also has a tasty range of eating houses and international cuisine. To find cheap hotels in Medina, ensure you book early and be wary of peak travel times at Ramadan and Hajj. If you would like to experience the delights of Medina during these significant times, reserve your tickets to Medina months in advance.
