Arriving in Chengdu

Set amid forests and bodies of water, Chengdu is a miracle of historical preservation mixed with progressive planning. Book your flights to Chengdu with Etihad Airways and get ready to embark on an adventure into Chinese culture and excitement that few other cities in China can match.

Plan Your Chengdu Visit

There are countless reasons to travel to Chengdu. Marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest Buddha statue, cut directly into a wall of red rock. Wander through the Huanglong Scenic Area considered by some to be "A Fairyland on Earth.” Get lost in Chengdu history in one of its many ancient towns. Indulge in a Chinese feast provided by one of Chengdu’s renowned restaurants. Be enthralled at a Sichuanese opera performance.

The peak season in Chengdu runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Chengdu several months in advance if you wish to travel during this busy part of the year. To find cheap hotels in Chengdu, consider travelling in the off-season (December through February) when weather conditions are not as sunny but crowds much smaller. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Chengdu throughout the year.

Flying from France

Book your flights from France to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and experience travelling in the finest comfort and luxury.

Major Airports in France

Paris’ main airport is the Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and is located just outside of the city. Each of the three terminals are easily accessible by taxi, and for busy passengers, Terminal 1 even has access to a hair salon to get you ready on the go.

For those travelling from the Alps, the Lyon-Saint-Exupéry International Airport (LYS) has three terminals that can easily be walked to from the drop-and-go car park. The airport has two hotels available if you wish to stay nearby.

Airport Transportation in France

From the city centre in Paris it is easy to take a RATP bus to Charles de Gaulle Airport (65 minutes). For those who prefer a little more privacy, a taxi to Charles de Gaulle Airport is another option (45 minutes).

Travel by train to Lyon-Saint-Exupéry International Airport is convenient and economical, with the Lyon-Saint-Exupéry Station located right at the airport. The high-speed TGV trains arrive from multiple locations across France, so you can access the alpine airport with ease.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Alicante

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Alicante and discover the differing faces of this diverse city. Go for a walk through the streets lined with palm trees, relax on the beaches, play a round of golf or peruse the markets to find the perfect souvenirs.

Plan Your Alicante Holiday

Known around the world as the capital of the Costa Blanca, the gorgeous beach-filled coastline, it would be silly to travel to Alicante and not even set foot on a beach. After enjoying the beautiful beaches of Tabarca Island and relaxing on San Juan Beach, walk through the urban parks, climb up to the magnificent Santa Bárbara Castle and immerse yourself in the thousands of scents and colours of the medieval street market. Visit Las Cigarreras, a former tobacco factory where contemporary artists now exhibit their masterpieces.

With Etihad Airways you will find great flight deals to Alicante and, as long as you avoid the months of July and August, it won’t be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Alicante. Reserving your tickets to Alicante for travel during March, April, and May is wise because temperatures will be pleasant and there will not be too many tourists.
