Flying from Sri Lanka

You can take flights from Sri Lanka to many destinations around the world with Etihad Airways and enjoy the advantages of a high quality flying experience from the time you make your reservation until you arrive at your chosen destination.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.

Plan Your Islamabad Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Islamabad. The historical sites and lovely green areas combine to make a trip to Islamabad an enjoyable, informative and relaxing experience. Be sure to visit the Pakistan Monument overlooking the city. A good place to consider spending a day is the Pakistan Museum of Natural History or perhaps the National Art Gallery. The Golra Pakistan Railways Heritage Museum which houses several old locomotives, a refurbished old world train station and a small museum is a hidden gem or just simply spend a day wandering through the many parks that line the avenues of Islamabad.

The best time of year to visit Islamabad is from October to April. It is also the busiest time of year for tourism in the area so it is strongly recommended that you buy your tickets to Islamabad as early as possible before you come. It is much easier to find cheap hotels in Islamabad if you plan your travel from May through September. Flight deals to Islamabad can be found in our Deals section.
