Arriving in New York

Book your flights to New York City with Etihad Airways and prepare for a whirlwind tour of art, culture, sights and sounds in the city that is always teeming with energy.

Plan Your New York Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to New York (NYC). Some come to just experience the pulse of this dynamic city. Others come for the cultural magnificence of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum or the Metropolitan Opera. Still others come to experience the wildly diverse realities of the five distinctive boroughs here, each with their own unique identity and different cultural offerings. No matter what brings you to New York, prepare to stay awhile and remember to book your tickets to New York well in advance.

New York has a tourist season that lasts pretty much the year round. You may be able to find a cheap hotel in New York in February and March when the winter weather is in full swing, but even then it is still very busy. If you can afford it, come and experience Times Square during the Holiday Season and stay through until after New Year’s Eve. The best flight deals can always be found in our Deals section.
