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 Sierra Leone

Book your flights from Sierra Leone to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and enjoy the superior service that we provide to our passengers on all of our flights.

Major Airports in Sierra Leone

The Lungi International Airport (FNA) is the primary international airport in Sierra Leone. Located in the coastal town of Lungi, the airport has one terminal and also offers a variety of shops for you to browse and purchase products while you wait for your flight.

Airport Transportation in Sierra Leone

Given the location of the airport, transportation is a little more unique. The best ways to travel are to take the Pelican Water Taxi to Lungi International Airport from Freetown or arrive by ferry boat. Both take between 20-30 minutes. Due to the Sierra Leone River, it is not possible to take a train to Lungi International Airport. While you cannot take a bus to Lungi International Airport, there are buses to Freetown where you can then take the water taxi. For those looking for one last adventure in Sierra Leone, you can also reach the airport by helicopter. While this is the quickest method of transportation it is also the most expensive.

Interested in Shanghai? Consider Conakry

Plan your flights to Conakry with Etihad Airways and look forward to visiting the capital of a land of mystery and wonder in west central Africa. Prepare for a holiday experience like no other.

Plan Your Conakry Holiday

To travel to Conakry is to start an adventure on the African coast that will thrill and excite any fun seeker and equally provide a relaxing rest stop for those who prefer lighter holidays. The best time to visit is during the dry season of November to February, when the weather is warm and pleasant. If you book tickets to Conakry for this time, however, be sure to do so well in advance of travelling as it is the most popular time to visit.

If you are looking for cheap hotels in Conakry, accommodation is available all year round, but in the wet season the torrential rains can make inter-regional travel more difficult. This will not, however, spoil any plans you may have for museum visits or shopping trips as travel within the city itself should be unaffected. As always, remember to check our popular Deals section for all the best flight deals to Conakry throughout the calendar.
