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.

Trudeau is the busiest airport in Quebec, as well as the third busiest airport in the entire country. More than 13 million passengers travel in and out of YUL every year. A flight usually takes off from Trudeau every 2 to 3 minutes.

Getting to Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport

Thanks to the Société de transport de Montréal (STM), there are four different bus routes that can get a traveler to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. Route 204 Cardinal runs every day of the week. Meanwhile, route 209 runs on weekdays. The other two buses, route 356 and route 378 operate in the evening.

In 2010, the Société de transport de Montréal opened up a 747 Montreal-Trudeau/Downtown route. The route is open 24-7 and carries passengers to the airport from eight different locations Downtown.

Of course, a traveler leaving Montreal can always pick up his or her phone and call a taxi, if not a limo service, to get to the airport. Flying out of Montreal can be a breeze.
