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 Sri Lanka

You can take flights from Sri Lanka to many destinations around the world with Etihad Airways and enjoy the advantages of a high quality flying experience from the time you make your reservation until you arrive at your chosen destination.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.

Interested in Almaty? Consider Bangkok

Book flights to Bangkok with Etihad Airways and discover its secrets. Impressive temples, modern skyscrapers, and neighbourhoods where almost nothing has changed in the last 200 years will welcome you.

Plan Your Bangkok Holiday

Travel to Bangkok and go on an adventure of discovery. You'll find extraordinary and bizarre buildings like a colossal museum in the form of a three-headed elephant, a building identical to a robot, and a 17-story tower surrounded by a huge dragon. If you decide to buy tickets to Bangkok, there will be a surprise around every corner. Only here will you be able to encounter a stunning temple like Wat Arun, and then after crossing a river, find a modern shopping mall like Siam Paragon or MBK.

This city of contrasts seems fast-paced to tourists at first, but behind its skyscrapers a little more exploring will reveal, on the side west of the River, traditional houses and merchants who still sail in their boats full of fruits. With the flight deals to Bangkok offered by Etihad Airways, you will be able to see both sides of this city, but for cheap hotels in Bangkok remember that the low season is from May to August.
