Arriving in Melbourne

Book your flights to Melbourne with Etihad Airways and enjoy this destination where outdoor living and excellent shopping form a busy yet relaxed destination. There’s plenty of culture in Melbourne alongside modern art and performance.

Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs. Flight deals to Melbourne are available throughout the year, so be sure to check our Deals section before confirming your holiday.

Flying from Egypt

You can travel to hundreds of destinations around the world when you book your flights from Egypt with Etihad Airways and take control of your flight details with the easy-to-use modify option.

Major Airports in Egypt

Start your trip from Egypt at Luxor Airport (LXR) in Luxor city, conveniently located near the popular tourist sites of the Valley of the Kings and the River Nile. The airport has a number of restaurants and a duty-free shop among other amenities.

Cairo Airport (CAI) operates from the city of Cairo where it handles more passengers than any other airport in Egypt. It is about 15 km from the business district of Cairo, providing easy access to tourists and business travellers alike.

Airport Transportation in Egypt

Although you will need to make sure the driver uses the meter when you take a taxi to Cairo Airport, it is probably your best and most comfortable option for transportation. It isn’t unusual for the bus to Cairo Airport to be crowded and the train service doesn’t run all the way to the airport.

There is no bus service or train to Luxor Airport, but a taxi service is available throughout Luxor.

Interested in Melbourne? Consider 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.
