Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Flying from Tokyo

Want to fly out of Tokyo’s Narita International Airport? There is no better way to travel out of Japan’s booming city than with Etihad Airways. Every step of the journey, from buying your ticket to landing in your final destination, is a pleasure.

Tokyo’s Major Airport

The Narita International Airport, NRT, is the primary airport for Tokyo. The facility is located 57.5 km, or 35.7 miles, east of Downtown Tokyo. Narita is the connection for travelers from Tokyo to Asia and the Americas. Serving more than 35 million passengers a year, NRT is one of the busiest airports on the planet.

Airport Transportation in Tokyo

A number of express trains, as well as commuter trains run from different parts of Tokyo to the airport exist. There are a couple of different train operators, East Japan Railway Company (JR East) and Keisei Electric Railway. Keisei’s daytime service is nonstop and takes 55 minutes to get from the city to the airport. All of the seats are reserved. When getting to the Narita International Airport, a passenger can be dropped off at either of the two stations. A 500 meter underground passage connects the two. The JR East journey to Narita takes roughly 80 minutes, as it makes fifteen different stops along the way.

Taking a bus from the downtown area to the airport can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Fortunately, taxis in Tokyo have a fixed rate to get to the airport. It will cost a traveler somewhere between 14,000 yen to 40,300 yen.
