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.

Major Airports in Bangladesh

Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (DAC) serves the city of Dhaka with international flights to worldwide destinations. The airport is located about 20 km from the city and is convenient for both tourists and business travellers.

In the south-eastern region of Bangladesh, the Shah Amanat International Airport (CGP) serves the port city of Chittagong. The airport accommodates a larger number of international passengers than domestic ones and has more dedicated space for handling the large number of passengers.

Airport Transportation in Bangladesh

Some travellers take a taxi to Shah Amanat International Airport through the Agrabad area. Although transportation throughout Bangladesh is commonly by rickshaws, you can also get a micro-bus to Shah Amanat International Airport at bus stops throughout the city.

For journeys to and from Hazrat Shahjalal Airport, travelling by taxi is a more convenient option than the traditional rickshaw. There are not many feasible alternatives, as there is no train to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
