Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Flying from Belarus

Book your flights from Belarus with Etihad Airways to hundreds of destinations around the world. You will experience superior service from the second you approach the counter to the second you leave the airport at your destination of choice.

Major Airports in Belarus

Minsk International Airport (MSQ) is the main airport in Belarus and is situated 26 miles from the capital city of Minsk. It serves almost six million people per year. There is a currency exchange, a 24-hour restaurant, and a few small shops including a duty free shop. The entire terminal also offers free Wi-Fi, but you will need to get an access card.

Airport Transportation in Belarus

It is possible to take a bus to Minsk International Airport from Vostochnyi or Moskovskii bus terminals. The trip will usually take around an hour and a half. You can also take a taxi to Minsk International Airport but it is much more expensive as the airport is located a good distance away from the city centre. Although if you prefer the extra leg room and are carrying a lot of luggage, this is probably your best option. There is no train to Minsk International Airport.
