Arriving in Frankfurt

Book your flights to Frankfurt with Etihad Airways and prepare to experience a city that perfectly combines rich tradition with new and fresh cultural awakenings.

Plan Your Frankfurt Holiday

We would need an entire book to tell you all the reasons to travel to Frankfurt for your next holiday. Here are just a few to whet your appetite; the German Film Museum takes guests through the magical history of film from optical illusions all the way through the newest film technologies; you can take in a football match at Commerzbank Arena and cheer on the Eintracht Frankfurt footballers.

The peak seasons in Frankfurt run from the end of May to early August and around the winter holiday season, late November through December. If you plan to visit during these popular times, we recommend reserving your tickets to Frankfurt several months in advance. Frankfurt has events and activities all year round, however, such as the Book Fair in October, the world’s largest trade fair for books. Consider travelling in the off-season period in order to find cheap hotels in Frankfurt and to avoid the crowds. Don’t forget to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Frankfurt throughout the year.

Flying from Port Elizabeth

Trekking around the world is easy when you book your flights with Etihad Airways. From the time travelers make their reservations to when they board at Port Elizabeth and pick up their bags at their final destination, the service is fabulous.

Major Airports in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) accommodates the city’s outgoing cargo, as well as passengers. Formerly known as H. F. Verwoerd Airport, the airport is located roughly 2 miles south of the city's central business district. This has earned it the name "Ten Minute Airport," as it is no more than a ten minute drive from most locations in Port Elizabeth. PLZ is also extremely busy, serving approximately 1,500,000 passengers flying in and out of the city every year.

Transportation Out of Port Elizabeth Airport

Port Elizabeth Airport is easily accessible, as it is so close to downtown. It can be easily reached by car from Cape Town, as well as from Johannesburg. People can also depend on public buses to get to the airport. Since the World Cup 2010, the bus system has been renovated. A passenger should never have to wait more than 15 minutes at a bus stop. A traveler can also depend on a taxi to get to the airport. More accessible in the daytime than at night, the Toyota Hiaces and VW Caravelles taxicabs are modified to cram in as many passengers as possible.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Port Elizabeth to Frankfurt on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
