Arriving in Johannesburg

Book your flights to Johannesburg with Etihad Airways and set yourself on a journey to the heart of African splendour.

Plan Your Johannesburg Holiday

Your love for African adventure will surely find fulfilment if you travel to Johannesburg. This journey is also your window of opportunity to explore the historical foundation of South Africa. Tours into the Apartheid Museum and the historic downtown Johannesburg buildings are set to pique your interest and leave you wanting to learn more. The Cradle of Mankind and the Gold Reef City excursion are a good chance to do just that.

The best time to travel to Johannesburg is the beginning of February just after the busy and crowded school holidays of December and January. You can immerse yourself in the greatest dance festival of the south, FNB Dance Umbrella also held around this time. Tickets to Johannesburg around this time; like every other time of the year, are easy to come by. Cheap hotels in Johannesburg are bountiful approaching the end of January; it is advisable you book for around this time to avoid the crowds.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.
