Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.

Flying from Seoul

Travel from Seoul to hundreds of fantastic destinations to Etihad Airways. Every step of your journey, from booking your ticket to flying in the clouds and picking up your bags when you land, will be a pleasure.

Major Airports in Seoul

Of the three major airports in Seoul, Incheon International Airport, ICN, is the largest. Known as one of the busiest airports on the planet, it is located 48 km, or 30 miles, west of the city. It is also the eighth busiest airport on the planet.

ICN features its own golf course, ice skating rink, casino, spa and duty free shopping, as well as the Museum of Korean Culture. Flying out of Seoul is rather fast and efficient. In fact, the airport claims to have a 0.0001% baggage mishandling rate. Incheon International Airport opened in 2001, replacing Gimpo International Airport as the city’s biggest airport.

Gimpo International Airport, GMP, is located, 15 km, or 9 miles, west of Central Seoul. GMP still feaurues flights from Seoul to China, Japan and Taiwan. Finally, there is the Seoul Airbase. However, the military facility may not be what you are looking for when traveling out of Seoul.

Airport Transportation in Seoul

A person now has his or her options when it comes to traveling from Downtown Seoul to Incheon International Airport. The Airport Railroad Express (AREX) subway may be the most efficient. A passenger can get from the metro area to the airport is 43 minutes. There is also the Seoul Metropolitan Subway. However, it is not as fast as AREX. Airport Limousine Buses can always get you to the airport, even if it takes a bit more time than the subway. Lastly, taxis are always convenient, even if they will end up costing you a pretty penny. At least you can negotiate your price to the airport beforehand.

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