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 Seychelles

If you are looking for a perfect holiday, booking flights from Seychelles with Etihad Airways is the solution. For all your flights, we guarantee you a comfortable trip and in-flight service that is second to none.

Major Airports in Seychelles

The main airport is Seychelles International Airport (SEZ). It’s called Aéroport de La Pointe Larue by locals, and is located on the island of Mahé. Although it’s relatively small, this does not prevent it from receiving international flights and offering travellers excellent services.

It has small duty-free shops where you can buy souvenirs and find popular brands of products for low prices. Plenty of bars and restaurants are available as well as a currency exchange booth. As this airport is a hub for connecting flights among the rest of the islands, regular domestic flights depart to Praslin, Bird, Denis, Fregate and Alphonse.

Airport Transportation in Seychelles

The airport is located just 11 km from the capital, Victoria. A convenient bus to Seychelles International Airport circulates every half hour, but at present there is no train to Seychelles International Airport. If you will be travelling after 19:30 at night, simply take a taxi to Seychelles International Airport.

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.
