Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Astana

Book your flights from Astana to numerous destinations all over the world with Etihad Airways and experience the in-flight service, fine dining and state-of-the-art entertainment that have made us the world's favourite airline.

Major Airports in Astana

The main airport in Astana is Astana International Airport (TSE). The first airfield in Astana was built in 1931 and has not stopped growing since then. With Astana being renamed the capital of Kazakhstan in 1994; the airport received an enormous upgrade to put it on par with other airports in capital cities. The current version was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa and has been open since 2005.

Airport Transportation in Astana

A taxi to Astana International Airport can be arranged and while it is more expensive than a bus, you will get to the airport a lot faster. There is a bus to Astana International Airport from the city centre that leaves every thirty minutes. If you plan far enough in advance this is a fantastic option for those who are travelling on a budget. Unfortunately there is no direct train to Astana International Airport from the city so taxis, buses or driving is advised.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Astana to Colombo on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
