Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Bahrain

Flights from Al Muharraq on Etihad Airways are the perfect choice for a comfortable trip regardless of your final destination. Our company offers you the best available in-flight service, which is one of the main reasons that so many of our passengers become loyal customers.

Major Airports in Al Muharraq

Bahrain International Airport (BAH) is located in Al Muharraq, 4 miles from the capital, Manama. Its modern and functional facilities offer a myriad of services, ranging from fine restaurants to a rest area, an area for families, and a business centre.

Airport Transportation in Al Muharraq

Taking a taxi to Bahrain International Airport is a quick and comfortable option, even though the prices are considerably higher at night. Another alternative, which is much more economical, is to take a bus to Bahrain International Airport. Please bear in mind, however, that it is not a regular bus service, but a service that utilizes minibuses, which is ideal for those who travel as a family or want to share transportation to reduce the cost. The main issue with the minibuses is that they tend to be hard to find. At present there is no train to Bahrain International Airport.

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