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 Lusaka

In Lusaka, flights are directed and received via Lusaka International Airport (LUN), formerly Kenneth Kaunda International Airport. It is located 14 km from the centre of Lusaka. The airport has one terminal and many facilities you will find useful when you are waiting to travel; an executive lounge, eateries, shops, a post office, pharmacy and newsagent.

Airport Transportation in Lusaka

As Lusaka itself does not have regular bus services which are reliable, the best method of transport to get to Lusaka International Airport is by taxi. As Zambia’s taxis range from executive minibuses to street cars, the safest way to arrange your transport to the airport is via your accommodation provider. There is a public bus to Lusaka International Airport from the city centre, but there is no train to Lusaka International Airport.

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