Arriving in Chennai

Plan Your Chennai Holiday

With so many options when you travel to Chennai, this is a city break which can easily also be a resort holiday by the sea. With stunningly ornate and breathtaking temples to visit, artistic fairs to browse, cool beaches to relax upon and cuisine to cater to every taste, India will remain with you long after you leave.

Because of high humidity and temperatures, the early summer months can be quieter travel periods, but for cooler, yet still hot, days early in the year is a perfect time to travel. Chennai can be affected by monsoons and storms, which generally peak in the late autumn months. In such a bustling atmosphere it is hard to avoid the crowds and tickets to Chennai should be purchased well in advance. Cheap hotels in Chennai are readily available and many luxurious hotels are easily affordable. To find the best flight deals to Chennai, be sure to check our Deals section.

Flying from Oman

Book your flights from Oman with Etihad Airways to hundreds of destinations spanning the globe and be pampered by Etihad Airways’ exceptional staff and world-class aircraft.

Major Airports in Oman

Muscat International Airport (MCT), also called Seeb International Airport, is the largest airport in Oman. It is situated 32 km from Muscat city centre and welcomes eight million visitors a year. It offers a wide array of eating establishments from quick and easy to a full service restaurant. The airport features a great selection of high-end shops. It also offers free Wi-Fi to passengers and a currency exchange. Another airport in Oman is Salalah Airport (SLL), which is much smaller and serves the resort area of Oman.

Airport Transportation in Oman

The transportation infrastructure in Oman is quite good and is expected to improve further with a proposed rail link, which would enable passengers to take a train to Muscat International Airport. There are also several bus lines so taking a bus to Muscat International Airport is relatively easy. As always, if you require more room and do not mind paying a little extra you can always take a private taxi to Muscat International Airport.

Interested in Chennai? Consider 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.
