Arriving in Muscat

Book your flights to Muscat with Etihad Airways and prepare to see both the ancient and modern come together in this wondrous destination. Muscat offers a wealth of experiences from riding magnificent Arabian horses to enjoying a balmy sunset at Qurum Beach.

Plan Your Muscat Holiday

Travel to Muscat and discover everything you hope for; fine weather, wonderful cuisine, modern facilities, history and culture. The landscape is both mountainous and oceanic, allowing every taste to be catered for. Modern shopping malls co-exist with traditional markets and older regions of Muscat are walled and gated as if time has stood still.

As Muscat has so much to offer, in such a unique geographic area, it continues to be a timeless destination. We advise that you book your tickets to Muscat well in advance if you wish to visit in the popular springtime, when various international events are held in pleasant temperatures. To find cheap hotels in Muscat seek accommodation outside of the Muscat district and consider booking outside of January to later February. Later in the year flight deals to Muscat can also be better as the temperatures increase.

Flying from Maldives

Book your flights from the Maldives with Etihad Airways and prepare to journey to one of hundreds of destinations the world over. Booking with Etihad ensures that you will receive exceptional service for the entirety of your flight experience and enjoy a holiday full of wonderful memories.

Major Airports in the Maldives

Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE), more commonly known as Malé International Airport, is located on Hulhulé Island and is the largest airport in the Maldives. It is only 2.5 km from the capital city of Malé. It offers passengers a first floor lounge with satellite TV and Internet access along with fax and telephone services. There is also a bank, a post office, restaurants and many shops including a pharmacy and a duty free.

Airport Transportation in the Maldives

As the Maldives is made up of a string of islands there is no train or bus to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. You may be able to take a taxi to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, but they are fairly limited on the island so you may have to book in advance. There is, however, a ferry to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport from Malé.

Interested in Muscat? Consider Medina

Book your flights to Medina with Etihad Airways and prepare to visit a destination which is globally renowned and steeped in historical religious significance. Beautiful mosques and archaeology await.

Plan Your Medina Holiday

There are limitations on who can travel to Medina, given its status as a world pilgrimage site and the highly organised checks which ensure mosques and other sites are properly used and protected. However, the area is steeped in tradition and resonates with meaning, making it a very special place to visit.

Medina has an arid and hot climate with warm, settled winds. Despite the heat, Medina is famed for its plantations of palms and dates and has a thriving success producing these plants. Medina also has a tasty range of eating houses and international cuisine. To find cheap hotels in Medina, ensure you book early and be wary of peak travel times at Ramadan and Hajj. If you would like to experience the delights of Medina during these significant times, reserve your tickets to Medina months in advance.
