Arriving in South Africa

Book your flights to South Africa with Etihad Airways today and realize the trip that you had always dreamed about. The friendly local inhabitants and the opportunity to see some of the most strange and wonderful animals on Earth are very likely to bring you back time and time again.

Plan Your South Africa Holiday

Whether you want to take an African safari in search of the elusive African leopard, or you are keen to explore and try to decipher the ancient bush man paintings of the Drakensberg Mountains, South Africa is teeming with endless possibilities. If your tastes are more sedate in nature you can always enjoy the luxurious and sun soaked beaches that dot the South African coast.

The peak season for tourist travel is from November to March so you may want to book your tickets to South Africa early for this time of year. For the frugal tourist looking to travel to South Africa, April and May is a much better time of year to go, when finding cheap hotels in South Africa is much easier. Flight deals to South Africa are always readily available in the Deals section on our website.

Flying from Malaysia

You can book flights from Malaysia to many international destinations with Etihad Airways and experience a high quality flight that will always meet your expectations.

Major Airports in Malaysia

International flights depart from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), located at Sepang, just 60km from the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. The passenger terminal contains a hotel and multiple shopping areas. Most of the international flights are handled through the Satellite terminal within the complex, which boasts a gorgeous jungle boardwalk, complete with waterfall and greenery.

Penang International Airport (PEN) serves the city of George Town. Despite being described as one of the busiest airports in the country, travellers will typically find that it is not over crowded.

Airport Transportation in Malaysia

You can take a KLIA Express train to Kuala Lumpur Airport in 28 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. A taxi to Kuala Lumpur airport is another option, but you must pre-purchase a ticket at the Arrival Level. There are also bus lines with routes to the airport.

A bus to Penang Airport takes about 1 hour and it is provided by Rapid Penang through 3 bus routes: 401E, 306, and 102. By taxi, the trip is about 45 minutes.

Interested in South Africa? Consider Hamburg

Book your flights to Hamburg with Etihad Airways and get ready to enjoy a gem of a city filled with cobblestone streets that wind through historic buildings nestled against a beautiful harbour setting.

Plan Your Hamburg Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Hamburg. History lovers will be drawn to downtown Hamburg. Museums in the city’s centre house fascinating artefacts and world class exhibits. Water lovers will be drawn to the city’s harbour or the tours offered along Alstar Lakes. Shoppers will love the eclectic mix of options available, ranging from top global designers such as Karl Lagerfeld to local artisans.

The peak travel season to Hamburg is between April and June, anchored by a popular festival known as Hafengeburtstug held in May. We recommend that you reserve your tickets to Hamburg several months in advance if you wish to travel during these warmer summer months. To find cheap hotels in Hamburg, consider planning your travel during the cooler winter months (October-March). While the weather may be harsher during these months, there are plenty of indoor activities to see and do for visitors. Visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Hamburg year-round.
