Arriving in Johannesburg

Book your flights to Johannesburg with Etihad Airways and set yourself on a journey to the heart of African splendour.

Plan Your Johannesburg Holiday

Your love for African adventure will surely find fulfilment if you travel to Johannesburg. This journey is also your window of opportunity to explore the historical foundation of South Africa. Tours into the Apartheid Museum and the historic downtown Johannesburg buildings are set to pique your interest and leave you wanting to learn more. The Cradle of Mankind and the Gold Reef City excursion are a good chance to do just that.

The best time to travel to Johannesburg is the beginning of February just after the busy and crowded school holidays of December and January. You can immerse yourself in the greatest dance festival of the south, FNB Dance Umbrella also held around this time. Tickets to Johannesburg around this time; like every other time of the year, are easy to come by. Cheap hotels in Johannesburg are bountiful approaching the end of January; it is advisable you book for around this time to avoid the crowds.

Flying from China

Reserve your flights from China to many intriguing destinations and travel in comfort when you fly with Etihad Airways.

Major Airports in China

From Beijing, passengers can fly from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). As the busiest airport in Asia, Beijing Capital is often crowded and so boarding passengers should plan to arrive early. There are numerous facilities, including the global kitchen where passengers can dine on the cuisines of many different nationalities.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) serves the city of Shanghai. The airport is located about 30km from Shanghai city centre and should not be confused with Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) on the west side, which serves mostly domestic flights.

Airport Transportation in China

The futuristic Maglev Train to Shanghai Pudong Airport runs from the Longyang Road Metro Station, taking less than 8 minutes to travel 30 km. A taxi to Shanghai Pudong Airport takes between 45 and 60 minutes. Ten different bus lines offer a bus service to Shanghai Pudong Airport from Shanghai city centre.

A train to Beijing Capital Airport is the best travel option with the Airport express running directly to Terminals 2 and 3, taking 20 minutes from the Dongzhimen area in Beijing city.

Plan Your Rome Holiday

We cannot begin to name all the reasons to travel to Rome, but let us give you a few. Sit by the waters of the Trevi Fountain and watch the lifeblood of the city – its people – hurry about the town.

Feed your senses in one of Rome’s many restaurants and sample the traditional, deservingly world-renowned cuisine.
