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.

Major Airports in Atlanta

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is the main airport serving the city. Located just 11 km from the city centre, for several years it was one of the world's busiest airports. Although it remains an important airport for international flights, in recent years it has been receiving more domestic flights.

Airport Transportation in Atlanta

The airport is located right in the middle of the city next to the downtown area. You can take a taxi to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, but if you’re not in a hurry and want to save money the public transportation system will serve you well. There are several ways to take a train to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport from key locations throughout the city. You can also take a bus to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. They usually pass by every 15 minutes or so, and run until shortly after midnight.
