Arriving in Cairo

Book your flights to Cairo with Etihad Airways and begin your holiday experience surrounded by a great historical civilisation and culture.

Plan Your Cairo Holiday

You must travel to Cairo to experience its ancient marvels and also get a feel of the modern emblems of the city like The Opera House on the island of Zamalek. This place is a living symbol of post modern architecture. Drive up to the Suez Canal to watch a host of migratory birds of prey with the amazing sights of the canal in the backdrop. Just stroll down the Al-Azhar Park to take some stunning pictures of locals and the colourful and varied vegetation that is grown.

The weather in Cairo is moderate and dry most of the time. Summers can be somewhat hot though, which can put a hold on some outdoor activities. Cheap hotels in Cairo are available during the off-peak season in the hotter months. Book your tickets to Cairo in advance to enjoy the fall and spring which are recommended as the best seasons. Don’t forget to look for the best flight deals to Cairo in the Deals section of Etihad’s website to find flights all year round.

Flying from Maldives

Book your flights from the Maldives with Etihad Airways and prepare to journey to one of hundreds of destinations the world over. Booking with Etihad ensures that you will receive exceptional service for the entirety of your flight experience and enjoy a holiday full of wonderful memories.

Major Airports in the Maldives

Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE), more commonly known as Malé International Airport, is located on Hulhulé Island and is the largest airport in the Maldives. It is only 2.5 km from the capital city of Malé. It offers passengers a first floor lounge with satellite TV and Internet access along with fax and telephone services. There is also a bank, a post office, restaurants and many shops including a pharmacy and a duty free.

Airport Transportation in the Maldives

As the Maldives is made up of a string of islands there is no train or bus to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. You may be able to take a taxi to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, but they are fairly limited on the island so you may have to book in advance. There is, however, a ferry to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport from Malé.

Interested in Cairo? Consider 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.
