Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.

Flying from Malaysia

You can book flights from Malaysia to many international destinations with Etihad Airways and experience a high quality flight that will always meet your expectations.

Major Airports in Malaysia

International flights depart from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), located at Sepang, just 60km from the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. The passenger terminal contains a hotel and multiple shopping areas. Most of the international flights are handled through the Satellite terminal within the complex, which boasts a gorgeous jungle boardwalk, complete with waterfall and greenery.

Penang International Airport (PEN) serves the city of George Town. Despite being described as one of the busiest airports in the country, travellers will typically find that it is not over crowded.

Airport Transportation in Malaysia

You can take a KLIA Express train to Kuala Lumpur Airport in 28 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. A taxi to Kuala Lumpur airport is another option, but you must pre-purchase a ticket at the Arrival Level. There are also bus lines with routes to the airport.

A bus to Penang Airport takes about 1 hour and it is provided by Rapid Penang through 3 bus routes: 401E, 306, and 102. By taxi, the trip is about 45 minutes.

Interested in Almaty? Consider 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.
